Book Trailer: United Tates of America

October 19th, 2009 by

This book trailer for United Tates of America was originally the Mystery Book Theater video for our Road Trip theme. For more on United Tates of America, check out our “Hit the Road, Jack” podcast. Or load it onto your iPod for your next long car ride! (It’s better than listening to your parents’ music picks, we promise.)

Are we there yet? Why are you hitting yourself? I know you are, but what am I?

Ah, the sweet melodies of a family car ride. You probably know them well — perhaps you’ve even contributed. Oh, who are you kidding, you’ve definitely contributed. Watch our video and see how your hands-on experience compares to the road trip in United Tates of America by Paula Danziger!
