Online StoryTime by Barnes and Noble offers a number of stories and picture books read aloud by authors and other celebrities. According to the Web site, a new (free!) story will be posted each month, with previous postings available for free as well. These would look great on a SMART Board or classroom projector! (Please note the “full screen” button at the lower-right corner of the player window.)
Among the stories currently available are:
- Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, by Judith Viorst
- Where The Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak
- The Polar Express, by Chris Van Allsburg
- The Mitten, by Jan Brett (The beautiful illustrations look almost as good on-screen as they do in the book!)
- And several others!
