Scan, Watch, Read. That’s what your students will do with these QR codes. Book publishers have realized that making book trailers is a great way to showcase their authors’ books.
Enjoy these FREE QR code bookmarks and signs for the recently awarded 2014 Caldecott and Newbery winners. These are a wonderful way to promote books in your library or classroom. I have used QR codes to promote books in my library and the students love it. My students love when I rotate the signs in the media center or give away the bookmarks at the check-out desk. You can see more of how we used them on my blog.
QR Code use in the Library
To ensure that students are taken to a safe place to view the book trailers none of the videos go to YouTube, instead they were changed to a Safe Share link (a site that removes all ads and links associated with a YouTube video).
There are multiple uses for these QR code signs. You can display the QR codes in sign holders, put them on a bulletin board, or cut the QR code off the sign and tape in books.
Using QR codes is a great way to engage your students.
Bookmarks and Signs Included:
1. Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo (Newbery winner)
2. Doll Bones by Holly Black (Newbery Honor winner)
3. Journey by Aaron Becker (Caldecott Honor Winner)
4. Mr. Wuffles by David Wiesner (Caldecott Honor Winner)

I am a member of Library Thing and use the permission they give on their website to use the book covers. Library Thing and their use of covers for books states, “The copy is of sufficient resolution for commentary and identification but lower resolution than the original book cover. Copies made from it will be of inferior quality, unsuitable as artwork on pirate versions or other uses that would compete with the commercial purpose of the original artwork.”
