The Hunger Games Trailer

OK, I know you've probably seen this everywhere else today, but I wanted to make sure my previous posts for today got some love before I posted this one. All I can say is WOW! I am even more excited for the movie now and I think it's going to be amazing. It looks like they are staying true to the book and I love the casting!

What do you think?

  1. Originally i was kinda worried that they might completely jack this movie up. i wasn't that crazy about some of the casting choices so i was scared that one of my fave books was going to get turned into a horrible movie.

  4. I am so excited about this! I was originally worried about it, too, but it looks like they are taking it seriously and doing it right. I also love how the whole trailer happens *before* the games actually start!

  5. I'm still skeptical of the casting a bit (still can't get into Lenny Kravitz as Cinna) but it's a lot less than before after seeing this trailer.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card.
