The Genius Files:Mission Unstoppable



Welcome to Watch. Connect. Read. This is a space for my students, librarians, teachers, and book lovers. I will share book trailers and information about new and upcoming children's books.
_________________________________________________________________________

It took nearly two hours to select the right trailer for this inaugural post. I decided on Dan Gutman's The Genius Files: Mission Unstoppable for two reasons:

1. It is one of the best book trailers I've seen this month.

2. He is visiting my school library next month.

On sale: 1/25/11

Place a hold at your public or school library . Please support your local Indie bookshop.


You can read 60 pages of The Genius Files.


Dan Gutman discusses his Baseball Card Adventures, My Weird School, and The Genius Files.

  2. I think book trailers bring the book to life and definitely get people motivated to read them, especially students who need a little extra push to get excited about a book. Dan Gutman is a favorite! Genius Files looks like a lot of fun. Coke and Pepsi McDonald reminds me of a friend who told me she knew twins who were named Lemonjello and Orangejello. :)

  3. This trailer was great John! Funny thing is, my mother-in-law taught two children from China whose parents chose Coke and Pepsi for their "English names!" I am so looking forward to following your new blog! Congratulations.
