Story Time for Me!

I am an avid follower of Digital Goonies, and Jim recently featured "Story Tme for Me", a website offering free online books for children to read. It currently has a very small library of books, but the stories are "animated" with automatic page turns, the text is highlighted as the story is read, and the page offers a toolbar to control book features. Several stories also have companion activity books which can be printed for free.

This is a screenshot of one of the books and includes the control bar along the bottom of the page.

For those of you who have already written books or may be inspired to publish children's stories, the site also offers the opportunity for you to submit your work for consideration.

This little website hopes to grow with the help of educators and is well worth visiting. Happy reading!
