Awesome Book Trailers by Whitman Students

In Mr. King’s class at Whitman Middle School, you don’t just read the book–you sell it. Students made their own book trailers promoting their favorite novels.

Like this one, that won first place in the King County Library System’s 2012 Read Film Win contest.

 

Or this one, for a novel about an extremely smart girl trapped in her own mind.

 

And there are more! The Whitman book trailer videos are in the library’s catalog; watch them all here.
