Would you like to join in the fun? Sign up here for the 6 week Readathon and your family will be able to "rent" different books from their online library each week! These books can be read on-line, or through your iphone, ipad, Android phone or tablet, or Kindle Fire (Nook app is coming soon). *** Note, I did have problems when trying to read the books online in Internet Explorer, Google Chrome worked like a charm for me!
Hopefully, you have all signed up for the summer reading program through your local libraries! This program should NOT replace your weekly (brick and mortar) visits to the actual library as kids need these experiences. This readathon is ANOTHER way to get your kids excited about reading more and in a different way! Online books are great for reading on-the-go, kids who may be excited about using the computer for learning, and for struggling readers. I had my 5 year old read along with the reader. A beging reader could Echo read, or read just slightly behind the reader. Although my 2 year old joined in the fun by listening and crafting with us, I believe that he is too young to read books online regularly and save these for once-in-a-while occasions.
