Goodnight Already!

Using a Children's Book Trailer to Spark Curiosity

I'm a big fan of many of the recent dry humoured & quirky children's picture books being published these days, so I was delighted to find this trailer while perusing the wonderful blog Children's Illustration.

The trailer introduces a simple story. Bear is extremely tired and just tucking himself in for the night. However, his neighbour Duck seems intent on keeping him awake.

The trailer (and accompanying picture book) struck me as good authentic materials for an English lesson for young learners. You can see the lesson and download it below.
