Villisca Public Library
A couple of really neat online story time websites I just discovered! Click on the link below the description to explore their websites.
Storyline Online is a free website introduced by the Screen Actors Guild (SAG). The Site features SAG members reading children's books online. There is a wide variety of books to choose from.
Just Books Read Aloud is a neatly organized website where you can choose the length of the book, author, narrator, topic, reading level, and language. There is free access to all the books, but a membership is optional.
