Book Trailers: The Anne Frank – Graphic Novel by Sid Jacobson & Ernie Colón

Every Saturday I share a book trailer of new releases, books we (other readers and myself) love, want to read, and anything that fits in with BA, in the hopes of helping readers find something new to enjoy.


If you’d like to share a trailer you think other readers would enjoy (including if it’s your book), send me a link and tell me a bit about the book. If it fits in with BA, than I will be happy to share with everyone with kudos back to you.
