Free Interactive Storybooks

Emergent readers as well as toddlers can enjoy these interactive stories online. There are different age groups available, ranging from 1-8. Three different series available, with each series containing numerous episodes. You get the first 2 free and add them to your library, where they can be viewed anytime you want. Have the grandbabies over? Login, and let them read a story. Trying to get your younger child interested in reading? They will love these books. If you share on Facebook, Twitter, etc., you get another free book for every person that joins and gets their 2 free books! I have my shelf started, including the book pictured above. My daughter is 9, but these make great free time activities for even older children. I suggest you check out this site and start your library today! The link is below, and all you have to do is click the link, and pick your first 2 books FREE!!

Safe Surfing

          I created this page for my daughters homepage. I added tons of educational sites, along with a few of her not so educational favorites. All are safe and I set windows to only allow her to go to sites that I put on the allowed list, so no clicking on ads or banners from the allowed sites. I can actually let her surf without standing guard. Very easily made and allows peace of mind. Try your own! If anyone needs help setting it up, I will be glad to help. Check out my daughters homepage for ideas
