Also called Book Trailers, the purpose of the Visual Book Promo (VBP) is to “hook” potential readers by telling them a little bit about a book without giving anything away.  The VBP entices viewers into reading the book to find out the rest of the story!

Life of Pi  
Fahrenheit 451  
Call of the Wild


Each VBP submitted is worth at least 3 Buc Stamps. However, based on the quality or complexity of the work, some VBPs could be worth more! The higher the production value, the more Buc Stamps!

 

There is NO limit! VBPs can be submitted all year and students can create a VBP for each book read. 

 

Participants can use ANYTHING to create a VBP as long as it has a visual component i.e. pictures!  For example, programs like Docs, Slides, Word and Power Point can be used to create a VBP.  Or, depending on a person’s technology skills, an animated VBP can be made using Movie Maker, iMovie, Animoto, Powtoon, or any other video editing software. A Website is an awesome method for making a VBP.  Wix and Google Sites are both free and easy website editors available for use. iPhones and Android phones make great videos too!

VBPs will be added to the HHS Library Catalog under the Book Review tab for each title and featured on the Library Home Page. Students can work as an individual or as a team.

Books and Buc Stamps!

Now that AR has gone away, you can earn Buc Stamps just by reading!


Visual Book Promos - Create a Visual Book Promo on a book you've and earn Buc Stamps when you turn in your promo to the library. Three Buc Stamps are awarded for every entry but it could be worth more depending on the project's overall quality..
