B&N Studio - (All Ages) The Barnes and Noble studio has an enormous cache of read out loud books by the authors, video interviews and book trailers. The online storytime features books such as "Pinkalicious", "Where the Wild things are" and "The Polar Express" .


The "Meet the Authors" channel features author interviews, the Eric Carle interview is fabulous! And don't miss the book trailers, they are as exciting as movie trailers and really pique your curiosity about the stories.


*There is a great mixture of adult and student content so make sure you preview your trailers and interviews before showing them in class.
