Top Ten Picture Book Trailers

Today is August 10 for 10, hosted for the fourth year by Cathy Mere (@CathyMere) and Mandy Robek (@mandyrobek). Each year around April I start thinking about this day, and what theme I want to take with my list. I love using book trailers as a way of "selling" books to students. I will often have a collection of book trailers playing as students enter the classroom in the morning or during an indoor recess. For this year's #pb10for10 I thought it would be fun to share 10 of my favorite picture book trailers. As with the actual books, it is always a difficult task to narrow it down to only 10 titles but I think you'll enjoy the final list! These, of course, are in no particular order. Maybe you'll find a few you can use as you begin your school year!
