Videos + Books = VOOKS
VOOKS is a streaming library of ad-free, kid-safe, animated storybooks brought to life to help encourage the love of reading in children ages 2-8 (or those in that developmental age range).
I always loved reading Curious George books when I was young, and also read them to my own kids. In fact, you might still find a few sitting on one of our bookshelves, and you might still find me taking a peek at one every now and then. (Heh heh). So, naturally, I chose a Curious George book for my first Vooks book to read/watch.
When the narrator reads the story, each word is highlighted as it is being read, so the reader can follow along. At the same time, the images are brought to life with animated movements and with sounds. It's a whole new way to read and learn, and it's fun!
I also enjoyed reading/watching "Gossie and Gertie," and "Who Said Moo!" and I'm sure I'll look at several more along with my adult, special needs daughter. She loves going to the library a couple times per month and choosing books like these to read, so I think she will enjoy this website. I will introduce it to her soon.
When you sign up for a subscription, you will also find downloadable lesson plans for these books.The plans include activity ideas related to each book, vocabulary words, discussion questions, fact sheets to help aid in teaching/discussion, and several worksheet options. What a great resource to have available for teachers and involved parents!
