Welcome to this week’s update on
5, 2010) We have been in existence for five weeks. There have been 6,226
trailer downloads from the site, and we have 76 trailers in all. The group
on Teacher Tube now has 1,383 members. If this is the first time you are
hearing about these book trailer sharing avenues, please view the
“Documents” folder at BTFA.

*We have added three new trailers to the site this week.   They are:*

 14 Cows for 
by Carmen Agra Deedy. The trailer was created by Sangeeta Garg, who is the
librarian at Hunter’s Glen Elementary at Ft. Bend ISD in Missouri City,
Texas (Lower Grade Interest Level)


All the Lovely Bad
by Mary Dawning Hahn.   The trailer was created by Analine Johnson of
Laredo, Texas (Middle Grade Interest Level)

 Wicked Lovely<>,
by Melissa Marr. The trailer was created by Beverly Burdine of Trenton,
Texas (Upper Grade Interest Level)

*A large number of trailers were downloaded more than thirty times each over
the past week. The top five downloads were:*

* **The Battle of the Labyrinth*, created by a 5th Grade Student, with 53

*Thirteenth Child*, created by Sarah Loch, with 41 downloads

*Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days*, created by a 5th Grade Student, with 38

 I wanted to let everyone know that *I will no longer be requiring trailer
creators to join the TT group in order to have their vids included at BTFA.*
TT is just TOO user-unfriendly for words!

 So, if you have a trailer, and the capability to send it to me via an email
attachment, I’ll take care of the rest.

 OR, if you’d rather set up your own (free, extremely easy) user account at and upload your trailer there, and then send me the link so
I can add it to the trailers at BTFA, that’s fine too.
