Featured Online Resource: Bookflix

Have you heard of BookFlix? Young children love it! BookFlix pairs video storybooks with nonfiction books for an exciting and dynamic learning experience.

Choose a category like “Animals and Nature” or “People and Places” to get started. From there, select your books. For example, the picture book Roberto the Insect Architect by Nina Laden is paired with the nonfiction book Termites by Martha E. H. Rustad. Your child may watch a video of the story of Roberto and then virtually page through Termites, which includes a read-along option.
