Book Buzz - Book Trailer Fun!  
by Kimberley Griffiths Little 
It's time for our annual Book Trailer Extravaganza!

Book trailers can be a great way to spotlight books in a fun, imaginative way that helps get your kids or your students interested in a book they otherwise might not look at twice.

If you're interested in creating book trailers with your students and are a new reader here - or want a refresher course - be sure to look up this post on making book trailers in your library or classroom or home.

There is also a Q&A with librarian Cynthia Stogdill about making book trailers with her students that we reprised last March, 2011 in the link:  

Check out this post on making your own book trailer!

And don't forget Darcy Pattison's MARVELOUS book about making book trailers:

HAVE FUN sharing book trailers AND books with your students and children!!!

Now for some new book trailers to enjoy for Picture Books, Middle-Grade Novels and Young Adult Novels (as well as your SPELLBINDERS' book trailers).

Tell us about some of your favorite book trailers right here on my personal blog - or at our SPELLBINDER blog:
