A book preview is a short commercial with images, music, voice-over, sound effects and text that promotes a book. Think of it as a movie trailer for books.


see also  Videos about Reading, our page with videos of parents reading with kids or get suggestions for helping dormant readers; and Authors and Illustrators Online, because many authors have book trailers and interviews about their books on their sites.

While our website will feature interactive reading and spelling games, a magical library that literally comes alive and visits from some unexpected and sometimes famous guests -- the heart and soul of our content on MrsP.com will always be a gifted storyteller reading great stories enhanced with a few simple illustrations. Mrs. P prefers not to compete with big-budget Hollywood movies, elaborate video games and virtual worlds; she would like to help kids learn to use their imaginations.
