Books Out Loud

Storyline Online does it again.  This time Viola Davis reads Rent Party Jazz by William Miller.  If you miss watching Reading Rainbow on PBS - and I do! - Storyline Online, brought to us by the SAG-AFTRA foundation, helps fill the gap.  BTW, the Reading Rainbow site has a lot to offer, too.

Brightly also offers read-alouds for Growing Readers.  During their read-alouds, each word is highlighted as the reader says it, allowing young readers to follow along.  The reading is expressive but rather slow.  Here's Miss Maple Seeds by Eliza Wheeler, read by one of Brightly's online readers, Miss Linda.

Check out Eliza Wheeler's website for some printables and other activities, based on this book.

Check back later to find out what we found on the front porch on Easter morning!!  Is The Easter Bunny real?  And, I have the details of my first ARC/signed book giveaway of 2017.
