If you’re browsing the HVLibrary website, you may stumble upon a fantastic new resourse for children called Bookflix. Listed under Online Resources: For Kids, Bookflix is available both here in the library and from the comfort of your own home – or anywhere else you may bring a computer! With Bookflix, children can read stories online, or watch them unfold through animated narration. This resource features many popular titles with favorite children’s picture book authors and illustrators such as Doreen Cronin, Lois Ehlert, Bill Martin, Jr., and Frank Asch, and many many more. This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to engage in something fun, educational and interactive, all on their own. Stories are arranged in pairs in a variety of different subjects including animals and nature, earth and sky and ABCs and 123s. All you need to gain access is your library card number.
While you are exploring that resource, don’t forget about the others! World Book on the Web is a great research tool for children as well, especially if you have a budding researcher on your hands.
