While you already know about the library’s vast collection of juvenile books, you might not know that we also offer plenty of online and eResources for kids, too. One of our favorites is Scholastic BookFlix. Thematically paired fiction and nonfiction titles are designed to bridge the distance between learning-to-read and reading-to-learn. It’s an especially great learning tool for emerging readers, struggling readers, and reluctant readers in grades Pre K – 3.
Parents and children can access the site 24/7 from the comfort of home by visiting Green Tree Public Library’s website, then clicking on the Collections tab and choosing Research and Reference from the pull-down menu. When you scroll down to Books and Reading, you can see all of our online resources geared towards children, including BookFlix. Once you log into BookFlix with your valid Allegheny County library card, you’ll be taken to their homepage, which looks like this:
As you can see, the bright colors, themes, and pictures make the site very kid-friendly.
BookFlix can help;
- Build interests and curiosity
- Build early literacy skills
- Build knowledge
We hope your children enjoy reading and learning more! If you have any questions about BookFlix or any of our other digital services, please ask a librarian.
