Library Time At Home

As so many schools around the world are closed, many authors and illustrators in the children’s literature world are sharing their work, expertise and inspiration with their readers. Here is a selection:

Lunch Doodles with Mo Willems (author/illustrator of the Pigeon books, and Knuffle Bunny).

Drawing, creative projects, read alouds, book previews, etc by Stimola Literary Studios. Stimola Live is a website of live stream events for kids, tweens, and teens by professional authors and illustrators represented by Stimola Literary Studio.

Kate Messner, author and educator, shares a TON of read alouds by herself and her author/illustrator friends. Hours of listening time!

Amazing author/illustrator Oliver Jeffers reads one of his own books a day for all home bound students.

Week 13 is also the “Dav Pilkey Gives You Super Reading Powers-Week”. With tons of creative activities.

Every day a famous actor reads a bed time story, done by the BBC: CBeebies Bedtime Story. Way more professional than the ones Sophie & Fleur shared with you! 😉

Our public library has an amazing section of e-books you can read on your tablet (for free), and AdLibris offers a wide range of e-books (fairly cheap) as well.

Also, audible.com (by Amazon) has now made hundreds of stories available for free, in six languages! https://stories.audible.com/start-listen.
