If you have a youngster in your home, and any kind of digital reading device, have we got a site for you!
The Jefferson County Public Library Kid’s Page contains a link to a Database known as BookFlix. This is a multimedia literacy resource featuring dozens of video versions of classic children's books. The videos are paired with nonfiction e-books about topics related to the video. Each pair also includes additional resources such as author profiles, games, and links to web resources on relevant topics.
There are nine subject categories to choose from, with many books and activities in each category. Each book gives viewers the option to read along with the book by following highlighted text. This is a fun and interesting way to help children develop reading skills, whether they are already reading on their own, or just beginning to recognize letters and words. Most titles would be of interest to preschoolers through early elementary readers.
You can ask any Children’s Librarian to direct you to the awesome sight, or get to it from the link above. If you're using it from home, you'll need your library card handy to get into the site. However you get there, we know you’ll find lots of fun stories to entertain you and your emergent reader! Happy e-reading!
