Kick Off WRAD By Sharing Follett's "Behind the Book" Author Video Series With Your Kids In A Variety Of Ways!

As we get ready for World Read Aloud Day this week, I have been on the look out for reading events and resources to share with our readers each day.

To kick off WRAD, I have something very special from Follett Learning to share.
It is the Behind The Book Author Series found on Follett Learning's YouTube Channel here. 

There are 54 wonderful author interviews on this playlist.  

They can be played within the playlist and...
each one of the videos can be played and shared individually too.
This would be perfect to share in the library or classroom during this week as we celebrate WRAD.

You could share individual Behind The Book videos with groups of students or even have the playlist running on a big screen as they come in and out of the library.
Also, you can hand out the above card to students and it will give them access to all of the Behind the Book videos by scanning the QR code or going to the bit.ly on the bottom.

This will be a fun activity for them at school, on the bus and even at home.
You can go to this Google Doc to get the card and even a page with 9 of the cards on it making it very easy to print a bunch to pass out for WRAD this week.
The author interviews are also fun to share on Twitter and Instagram by sharing the individual links to the Behind the Book videos.....or tweet out the entire playlist too!

We all hearing from our favorite authors.  This week give everyone a special place to listen to wonderful stories, writing tips, upcoming books and more from the Behind the Book series too.
