Take Time To Read!

This month I am rec­om­mend­ing a lit­er­a­cy web­site for ele­men­tary ages chil­dren from Kinder­garten through to Grade 8. There are a num­ber of free books avail­able to read online or down­load with relat­ed activ­i­ties at Free­KidsBooks.org.

The site is divid¬≠ed into grade cat¬≠e¬≠gories and age rec¬≠om¬≠men¬≠da¬≠tions. As well, there is an ESL area and books in a vari¬≠ety of lan¬≠guages. As our glob¬≠al e‚ÄĎclub is ded¬≠i¬≠cat¬≠ed to help¬≠ing chil¬≠dren with read¬≠ing this free site of books will help enter¬≠tain them through¬≠out the sum¬≠mer months no mat¬≠ter where they live.

Bil¬≠ly Saves The Day is the sixth title in the Bil¬≠ly Books series. Each book address¬≠es a unique topic‚ÄĒbullying, arro¬≠gant pride, jeal¬≠ousy, lying, steal¬≠ing, lack of self-belief, under¬≠stand¬≠ing mon¬≠ey, and secrets. Writ¬≠ten to help par¬≠ents, guardians and teach¬≠ers deal with the issues that chal¬≠lenge pre-teen chil¬≠dren; each top¬≠ic is pre¬≠sent¬≠ed in a gen¬≠tle way through sto¬≠ry¬≠telling. Set¬≠ting the issues in a mean¬≠ing¬≠ful con¬≠text helps chil¬≠dren to under¬≠stand the chal¬≠lenges, and to see things from a dif¬≠fer¬≠ent per¬≠spec¬≠tive. The books act as ice¬≠break¬≠ers allow¬≠ing for dis¬≠cus¬≠sions of dif¬≠fi¬≠cult sub¬≠jects. Addi¬≠tion¬≠al¬≠ly, each title is sup¬≠port¬≠ed by a free activ¬≠i¬≠ty book to rein¬≠force the learn¬≠ing, while hav¬≠ing fun.

I would love to hear from those who make use of it.

Be Well,

Julia Levine
