The final step was to publish the trailers and so the children put them on their individual blogs along with a written overview of the project. Since these are private we also put them on a public blog and so you are encouraged to head overthere where all the trailers are available along with excerpts from the children’s blog posts (a few of which are above).

In the beginning when I was first publishing pop-up books. I very rarely met a librarian who would consider them. I had one librarian recently tell me, “Oh, we put all your books in our library!’ I said, ‘You do? Really?!’ She said that after a while they’re going to get kind of beat up, but they will circulate at least 100 times compared to three times for other books. So if a book circulates 100 times and gets all beat up and loved, she can justify buying another copy.
