ivy + bean take care of the babysitter: videos

This week I'd like to share a couple of videos with you. First is a must see book trailer for the series. It is perfect to show in classrooms to help get readers excited about Ivy + Bean.

The next two are longer, but I find them interesting because they are interviews with Annie Barrows and Sophie Blackall. Any time I can pick up interesting bits about writers or illustrators, I think it is a good use of time.

This week Chronicle Books is giving away Ivy + Bean Take Care of the Babysitter.

And three sets of mini notes.

Just leave a comment on this post before Sunday night. I'll post giveaway recipients  on Sunday before I go to bed. If you receive a giveaway, your name will be placed in the grand prize drawing.
