These are books my students have enjoyed year after year and my own kiddies absolutely LOVE. As an added bonus, Im also sharing with you some links to cool websites and apps where you can access some of my favorite read alouds (and many more).

Storyline Online– The Screen Actors Guild Foundation records well-known actors reading children’s books and provides these videos on their site. Make sure to click the load more books button at the bottom of their page to access more titles. A few of my favorites (from the list above) are available through this website. You can also access their videos on their youtube channel by clicking here.
