9.13 {BookFlix Friday} + Reading&Tweeting + a bonus video

Today is

There are tons of great book trailers out in cyberland, and each Friday I will endeavor to bring a couple to you. Many will be new and recent books. Some trailers will preview a not-yet-released book. And others will look back a little further.


Description from IndieBound:

It takes a graveyard to raise a child.

Nobody Owens, known as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn’t live in a graveyard, being raised by ghosts, with a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead. There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy—an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible Sleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, he will be in danger from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod’s family.

Do you like being read aloud to? Here is the author reading the whole book:

It’s so cool Reading&Tweeting with authors. I love for my students to see that they can interact with their literary idols:

Did you see Ben R. lugging the jerry can of water yesterday? He joined two other students trying to #CarryTheJerry around school. It helps us understand Nya and her long walk to water in our book:
