I'm so excited to share my trailer with you. If you're looking to teach your students about the combinations of ten or if you're looking for some fun insect facts or if you're looking to find out what flowers to plant to attract polllinators to your garden or if you enjoy seek-and-find books, 100 Bugs! is the perfect book for you. Be sure to put it on your list for books to read on the 100th day of school as well. I'm including the script for the trailer below. If you and your class make a trailer of the book, send it my way, and I'll be sure to post it on my blog. Those of you who have been following 100 Book Trailers from the beginning, may note similarities between my trailer and the first trailer I featured-Can an Aardvark Bark? by Melissa Stewart (link below). That's because Melissa's trailer inspired this one. Thanks, Melissa! For more activities centered around 100 Bugs!, click here.
