Every year we eagerly await the release of the spring online preview, a video that offers a sneak peek of what books will hit the shelves in the year to come. This year, our Trade division has outdone themselves, teasing 38 books in 38 minutes. That's got to be some sort of industry record, don't you think? The spring 2014 online preview compiles commentary from Scholastic editors and authors on new titles in the following genres: picture books, chapter books, middle grade and graphic novels, and young adult. You can watch the entire preview here.
Clearly this collection calls for an infographic. Check out this never-ending infographic that sorts all of the forthcoming titles into categories like "relationships & romance," "thrillers," "animals & humor," "families," and "fractured fairytales."
If you want to learn more about how the epic online preview video is made, School Library Journal went behind the scenes to report on the ins and outs of the production process. You'll learn that it's a pretty big undertaking. And the video of Sharon and Rachel Robinson taken during some down time between filming will likely melt your heart.
