BookFlix - watch your favorite stories online!

Scholastic BookFlix is a new online literacy resource that pairs classic video storybooks from Weston Woods with related nonfiction eBooks from Scholastic to build a love of reading and learning. This online resource is geared for children ages preschool-grade 3.

Watch the story and read the book! You can read-along with the storybook videos or just listen, watch, and learn. Find your favorite picture books under categories like Animals and Nature; Earth and Sky; People and Places, ABC's and 1,2,3's, Family and Community, Music and Rhyme, Adventure, Celebrations, and Imagination. Listen to Click, Clack, Moo, Cows that Type by Doreen Cronin and then take a trip a dairy farm by reading Let's Visit a Dairy Farm by Alyse Sweeney to learn real life facts about farms! All of this on your computer at home, on the go, or in the library. If you're a teacher, there are even lesson plans related to each book pairing included. Information about the authors and links to related, age-appropriate websites are included as well.

You can access BookFlix from outside the library by clicking here. Click on the BookFlix link our the Online Resources for Kids page. You will need your library card # to login. Enjoy!

How do we log onto BookFlix? I tried both the links in your blog and couldn't use my library card number to log in. Thanks.

Hi Sarah. Thanks for your comment. Apparently the library's account with Scholastic requires patrons access BookFlix directly from the library's website. I added a new link in the original BookFlix post here on our blog that directs you to our online resources for kids page. Follow that link to access BookFlix from home - or in the library! You'll still need to type in your library card number to login. If you have any trouble accessing BookFlix, please feel free to call us at the library: 541.766.6794. Thanks!
