Welcome to a site dedicated to book trailers and book reviews for children and young adults. Book trailers are such a fun way to preview and promote books. Many are available on youtube but these are just some of my favourites collected here in varying degrees of readership.

My name is Desna and I am a school librarian in Christchurch, New Zealand, working at a primary school during the day and working a few nights a week at a secondary/community college library.
There is absolutely never enough time to read all the wonderful books out there.
It is not my intention to breach any copyright. I am simply trying to spread the news about good books and good writers.

Review policies
No self-published books
Children’s and Young Adult books only

You can contact me at booktrailers@xtra.co.nz

Thanks for stopping by!

    I hope you are actually sending this to Jacinda herself Desna. She is known to be sympathetic to the cause of children’s lit/culture but it needs more than that…

    Hi Desna. This author has a fantastic book trailer for his middle grade science fiction novels. You don’t see sf novels for kids very often. These remind me of Heinlein’s Juveniles series. Some good life lessons in these stories. High adventure too. Thought I’d share.
