Not sure if this has been shared yet, but this is a great site available to both Canadian and American Teachers/Librarians. Easy to set up and login.

This is an amazing resource, unfortunately it won't work on my school campus. Very odd! Works at home just fine but not at school for some reason.

and it looks great! Every student on my grade level will have their own Chrome book this coming year and this will make reading for some of them more interesting.
Thanks so much for sharing!

Wow - that's so great! I'm getting 5 iPads for my classroom this year, so this will be great! I'm using one for my classdojo and now the others can easily use this as I help pick some books for my kids with it.

Thanks!

Wonderful site! Nice to see a lot of Canadian content. I will be sharing this with my fellow teachers.

I played around with it and found where some of the books have audio. Awesome for when I lose my voice and want to read to the kids.

apparently it's $5.00/month. Did anyone else see this? Has anyone actually used this? How does it work for a class? Right now it just looks like it's appropriate for individuals. I'm trying to decide if it's worth the $5.00/month. Thoughts?
