In fact, Library Journal named him "The Xtreme Librarian" for the high level of exertion – along with some gears and stunts – he uses to get kids reading, and Instructor Magazinenamed him a Cool Teacher for redefining what it means to be a teacher-librarian.
This resource is a link to his Blog. The Blog hosts children's book trailers he has created. He explains "how" he created them.

This blog was started in 2011 as a venue for book reviews and thematic booklists. Gradually, the focus began to shift to lesson ideas and managment tips for librarians and classroom teachers. According to Mrs. Readerpants,
"...there is a huge need for librarians to share ideas with one another. New librarians are especially "on their own" in their schools, and many new librarians look to websites like this one for ideas, direction, and a much-needed sense of community. I am honored to be a part of that community and encourage all librarians to reach out and help one another."
Areas users can explore include: New Releases, Reviews, Book Lists, Booktalks, Genre-Fication, Using Picture Books with Older Readers, Library Lessons and Printables, and Running the Library.
