Sometimes we feel happy like a bright, yellow sunflower 🌻, sometimes we feel angry like a red, burning bush 🔥, and sometimes we feel a mix of emotions we are unsure how to express. When we feel strong feelings, a great way to express ourselves is through art and drawing.

Join Caldecott honoree, Cindy Derby, illustrator of the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators Crystal Kite Award-winning picture book, THE BOY AND THE GORILLA, for #ReadySetDraw as she teaches us how to paint an emotion garden to fill with our feelings. 🥀🌼🌸

Looks like fun.
So pleased to present the book trailer for my newly-released picture book, THE LIBRARIAN'S STORIES (POW! Kids). 'A courageous librarian brings hope and comfort to children in a war-torn village'. Some trailers run 30 - 45 seconds and do a great job of capturing a book's essence. For these shorter trailers (which I did for each of my chapter books and middle-grade novels), I usually leave it in the hands of the video editor. For longer videos - around 2 - 3 minutes - I'm totally hands on, and literally become a director making notes on every image, timing, music etc. For The Librarian's Stories, I partnered with a talented videographer, Matthew Allen. For anyone technically oriented, he utilized 2-D animation techniques/prepared artwork in Adobe Photoshop/and animated in Final Cut Pro. I'd be interested in knowing which type of trailer you prefer: mini or maxi?
