This is a Thing: Trailer Tuesday! Ollie and Moon

6 Sep

A few weeks ago I posted the book trailer for Jarrett J. Krososzcka’s upcoming Ollie the Purple Elephant. Since then, I’ve been looking for more trailers of upcoming picture books, and decided I would start a new “thing” on this blog – Trailer Tuesday! Every Tuesday I’ll share a trailer for an upcoming picture book that I’m looking forward to checking out. Mr. Schu’s centered his whole blog around book trailers (although he’s an elementary school librarian and so doesn’t limit himself to picture books) and has enjoyed great success, so I thought this would be a fun thing to try.

Book trailers, like movie trailers, give you a taste of the story and characters. Sometimes they’re animated, sometimes not. Sometimes, as is the case for chapter books, the publisher has even created a little film with live actors in order to give a real flavor of the story. Many publishers have their own YouTube channels on which they can promote their books.

What a neat way to get readers excited about an upcoming book!

So, without further ado, I present my first (well, second, if you count Ollie) upcoming book trailer! It’s for Ollie and Moon (another Ollie? What the heck!) by Diane Kredensor. Not an upcoming book, technically, since it was published in April, but I personally haven’t gotten my hands on it yet so it’s upcoming for me! It looks perfectly delightful! I can’t wait to find out what the surprise is!
