Book Trailers

René Colato Laínez

Inspired on the famous Movie Trailers, now writers and illustrators are making their own trailers. But instead of movie clips, they use the art and images of their books.

Take a look at LITTLE NIGHT by Yuyi Morales. This wonderful book won the Golden Kite Award given by the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).

Like a movie trailer, a book trailer can inspire you to go to a bookstore or library and look for that particular book. In the movie trailer, you can include your previous books and your websites. ESTELA'S SWAP was written by Alexis O'neill and Illustrated by Enrique O Sanchez.

A book trailer can make you laugh too. Do you know who are the Cheecharrones? You will know them after watching this book trailer. CAPTAIN CHEECH was written by Cheech Marin and illustrated by Orlando L. Ramirez.
