Bookmark this website now! This is a website where you can watch members of the Screen Actors Guild – yes, well-known actors and actresses (and even Al Gore!) – read stories and books aloud. Their skills at bringing the words on the pages to life engage audiences of all ages.
When you get to the site you will see a welcome message and a menu of book covers/titles below. Put your cursor over the book and you can see who reads it. You can also find the complete list by clicking on “view the list of all books” located at the top right. Turn on your speakers, and click on a book to begin. A new page opens – simply click “Let’s Read It” and you will be treated to a video of the actor reading the book, complete with illustrations, captions (so you can follow along), and a musical score to enhance the experience.
Once you are through watching and listening to the story or book, download and print out the “Activity Guide” that includes a book summary, related activities, information about the author, trivia facts related to the book, and information about the Screen Actors Guild member who read the story.
We were completely captivated by the stories we sampled. This is a high-quality endeavor that blends literature and technology in a delightful way for readers and listeners of all ages.
