Video Wednesday: New Video Booktalks
Here at Scholastic, we dig video booktalks.They're a fun, easy way to get kids interested in good books without having to read the jacket or skim through the first few chapters. I've been inspired to read books after watching a booktalk (including Chasing Vermeer). We just published 12 new booktalks, bringing our grand total to 75 videos. Whew!
My favorite of the bunch is for Carlos is Gonna Get It by Kevin Emerson. It's performed by Scholastic staffer Jonathan Valuckas, who is just as hilarious and gregarious in person as he is in his video clips.
Watch all of the video booktalks and find a new book to read or recommend.
