Book Trailers- Movies for Literacy

As the summer approaches, many teachers and parents are searching for ways to encourage students to keep reading through the "lazy summer afternoons." Well, Book Trailers might be a helpful site. It features short (30-45 second) video clips that introduce elementary and adolescent books in an entertaining way. It could help students select books to read over the summer. Also, you can contribute your own videos to the site. I think it would make a great resource for both parents and students over the summer!
