Book Trailer Thursday: ON A MAGICAL DO-NOTHING DAY

The trailer for Beatrice Alemagna’s On A Magical Do-Nothing Day (Harper Kids) captures the magic of the book’s illustrations with animation. It shows the story of a child  forced to find fun outdoors when Mom takes away their video game. Outside, the child runs into four snails that demonstrate how fun a boring, rainy day can be.

As Booklist editor Julia Smith says in her review, ” There is an increase in drama as each of the child’s senses is triggered by a new discovery in the woods: a patch of red-capped mushrooms; a damp smell like ‘my grandparents’ basement. My cave of treasures’; squelchy mud; raindrops on the child’s tongue—each is seen, felt, or tasted with growing excitement.”
