Booksellers know the secret.
Halloween is about stories.
How can you participate in a simple promotion that brings families back to the store to ask for books by name?
How can you get your whole community to use Halloween as an opportunity for book discovery?
Introduce your community to TRICK OR REATERS.
What Does TRICK OR REATERS Offer Your Readers?
Using children’s book excerpts, book trailers, slideshows of sequential illustrations and audiobook clips, TRICK OR REATERS is offering 100 free story teasers to introduce kids (ages 12 and under) to new authors and books. Explore the growing list of stories here.
