A few months ago we celebrated Nonfiction November and shared read-aloud videos of some of our favorite nonfiction books. We had so much fun we thought we’d show some love to fiction next! Throughout the month of February we’re sharing read-aloud videos of twenty-eight different fiction picture books! The videos are yours to share with students and readers, whether you’re watching them in your classroom or library or using them for hybrid and distance learning. Featured read-alouds include two laugh-out-loud Monkey with a Tool Belt titles, fan-favorite Dino-Basketball, the celebrated and heartfelt story A Map into the World, and more! Keep reading to see the video release schedule or click here to download a PDF schedule.
Fiction February participants will receive an email every Sunday beginning January 30, 2022 with links to read-aloud videos for every school day that week (along with recommended related titles!) The videos will be available to watch through March 1, 2022.Read More
