Book Trust from England is the UK’s largest reading charity supporting literacy. They have so many great resources for children including reading picture books to kids, drawing videos and activities. They started Book Trust Home Time to support children during the pandemic by offering even more read along books and fun, educational digital resources. This week author Cressida Cowell is reading her book “How to be a Pirate.” You must visit their web site if you are looking for free quality online sources. Young and older children can find something fun here. Click the ‘Hairy Maclary’ book above to listen and read one of my favorite picture books from New Zealand author, Lynley Dodd. You’ll instantly be looking for the rest of the series!
