Abstract
Research has shown that number of males who read for aesthetic purposes is far below the number of females who read for aesthetic purposes. This project focuses on the design, development, implementation and evaluation of book trailer videos to help increase aesthetic reading among males in fourth and fifth grade. The finished project includes five book trailer videos based on books at the fourth and fifth grade level, which are targeted towards males, which will assist in promoting aesthetic reading among males who are in fourth and fifth grade. The implementation of the book trailer videos was completed at a local private Christian school. The results show there is no major difference in attitudes regarding the chosen books between before and after watching the book trailer videos. However, the average scores regarding the students’ opinions on reading increase after watching the book trailer videos.
