Book Trailer Premiere: Too Many Moose by Lisa Bakos and Mark Chambers

Happy Tuesday, Lisa Bakos! Welcome back to Watch. Connect. Read.! Thank you for dropping by to finish my sentences and share the book trailer for Too Many Moose

Thank you, Mr. Schu! 

The book trailer for Too Many Moose! was created by Mark A. Chambers, the illustrator of the book. As it happens, I'm a huge fan of marching bands, yet Mark didn't know this fact and there were never any art notes in the original manuscript indicating this either - so I was delighted when Mark had Martha leading a marching band in the book and in the trailer too!

Martha decided she must have a pet, and marveled and mulled over what she should get...and just when it seemed like it might be no use...she made up her mind that she must have one....moose! Then Martha quite merrily ordered one more, and one more and one more until she had four! And in no time, Martha discovers that less is more when it comes to moose! 

Mark Chambers' illustrations are marvelously whimsical and the perfect match for my words! I especially adore his endpapers at the back of the book and truly hope to collaborate on more books with Mark in the future. Mark is an award winning illustrator who lives across the pond in a town called Lincoln within the East Midlands of England.

Picture books have something to offer for everyone at every age! Personally, I can (and do!) spend hours in the children's book section of bookstores and libraries. Picture books make up about 90% of the books on my shelves, complete with a well loved and coveted collection from my own childhood. 

School libraries and librarians are the heart and soul of every school campus. It's where students can find familiar favorites and access new adventures any day of the week. 

Mr. Schu, you should've asked me about my chickens. Unlike moose, you can never have too many!

Borrow Too Many Moose! from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
