Book Trailers and Youtube

I recently saw a Tweet from author Joelle Charbonneau (The Testing Series) that said she was attending a school visit where a librarian was book talking in conjunction with showing the kids and teens book trailers. 

Many publishers have YouTube channels where they are consistently uploading trailers for some of their newer more popular titles or something they are trying to build a lot of interest in. Admittedly some book trailers are better than others, but none-the-less they will add another dimension to any school visit or other piece of outreach you are doing. Since summer reading is right around the corner you might consider throwing some of these publisher branded YouTube channels in your utility belt!
