Book Trailers

One of my many goals this year is to expose students to more books.  We already do this through student sharing, classmate recommendations, and teacher sharing, but I am wanting to take time each week to show one book trailer which advertises a new or existing children's book.  While searching, I found this one:

Third grade is a great year for Mr. Popper's Penguins, and I liked that this was short but to the point. I also liked it for its use of vocabulary. I am thinking I can have this lead directly into a lesson on context clues.

Do you use book trailers in your classroom? Do you have a special place that you find them or that you recommend? I would love to get ideas on using book trailers in my classroom.

I see most of my book trailers on You Tube - the district finally unblocked this site for us. Here's one you'll LOVE - the book is called Your Fantastic Elastic Brain:

Flashlight Press is now doing book trailers; their new book looks really cute! I also saw one for Cloudette by Tom Lichtenheld on You Tube that was ADORABLE!!!

As I was going through my blog roll, I found this link to book trailers

She also has lots of other tech products she did with her students.
