Book trailers have become an interesting and popular way to advertise upcoming, new and favorite books. They’re created by publishers, authors and people of all ages who love books and want to share why certain stories mean so much. In recognition of the creative effort expressed in this new format, School Library Journal has pulled out what they consider the best four book trailers in six different categories .
Watch all 24 trailers made by authors, publishers and fans (Pre-K through 6th grade, 7th – 12th grade and adult) and vote on your favorite. Books range from picture books to teen titles, with authors as diverse as Mo Willems, Mary Downing Hahn, Katherine Applegate and Jon Scieszka. Some of the books featured include All the Lovely Bad Ones, Spaceheadz, and Ghostgirl: Lovesick.
It’s a fun way to find out about new titles and favorite books!
Go HERE for more information and to watch the trailers! The contest runs through Friday, October 22nd. Make sure you vote by 9 p.m. CST!
