* B O O K W I N K *

  • Booktalks are a great way to introduce a book to students! They provide enough information about a book but without giving the entire plot away. They are like trailers for a popular movie coming out. Many librarians use booktalks as an enticing way to get students interested in books but it is time consuming to prepare them. Here is a site with booktalks ready and waiting! They are excellent! Your students can view the videos of the book talks that Sonja Cole, the host with a degree in Library Media, presents. She is engaging, provoking and hooks the students in.

Bookwink is set up to excite 3rd-8th grade students about reading. It contains annotations and videos about popular children and young adult literature. You can search by subject, grade level, author and title. You can also subscribe to their podcasts and vodcasts. Share this with your librarian friends!
