More trailers for Helen Frost's poetry

Summer school is over and the new fall semester begins today. Before I move forward, I'd like to share two digital poetry trailers created this summer by my students, Jennifer Curnow and Julia Vandiver (and shared with their permission). As it happens, they both choose works by Helen Frost, Keesha's House and Diamond Willow, respectively. I think they've done a good job capturing the tone of each book, in particular. What do you think? Here's Jennifer's trailer for Keesha's House.

And here's Julia's trailer for Diamond Willow below.

That Keesha's House one is lovely (didn't have time to view the other one yet)! I just read this book in the past 6 months or so, and this video really does capture the feeling of it. Thanks for sharing, Sylvia!
