Library News

Hi Everyone!  I have more exciting news.  Wendell Cross now has a virtual library!  If you're in the mood for a read aloud, check out the selections in the virtual library.  There are picture books and chapter books including some favorites like Pete the Cat and the Magic Treehouse.  There are also seasonal books you can enjoy.  Just click on the picture of the library below to get started. 

Don't forget to check out Scholastic BookFlix! BookFlix is the online resource that pairs animated storybooks with a related nonfiction eBook.  It is a great way to keep reading, learn new things and have fun doing it. Some of the categories you can choose from include animals, nature, people, places, family and adventure! There are activities and games that go with the paired stories, too.  Give BookFlix a try by clicking on the BookFlix icon below.

If you prefer reading books on your own, you can get free ebooks on Amazon and the Barnes and Nobles website.   Remember, it doesn't matter what type of book you read as long as you are reading.  Have fun!
