10.11 {BookFlix Friday}

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.


First up: My revamped trailer for A Long Walk to Water. I included some new information since today is our #ReadWalkWater day. Two other schools—Holly Mueller’s in Ohio, and another in Wisconsin—will be doing similar walks. I can’t wait to hear about theirs.

In the spirit of Africa, here is a trailer for the graphic novel War Brothers. It looks disturbing… but also has a hint of hope.

We read about Salva, a boy who wasn’t involved in the fighting. What was life like for the boys who were considered old enough to join the war?

And if you behave, I’ll even let you watch…
