We just purchased BookFlix  for our school community.   BookFlix is a new online literacy resource that pairs classic video storybooks from Weston Woods with related non-fiction eBooks from Scholastic to build a love of reading and learning.  The engaging way to link fact and fiction, BookFlix reinforces early reading skills and introduces children to a world of knowledge and exploration.
