Children’s Storybooks Online

(www.magickeys.com/books/index.html)

Age Range: 5-18 (Grades K-12, with parental supervision)

 

This award-winning site contains original stories with illustrations for young children, as well as stories for older kids and young adults too.

This ad-supported archived website gives you many riddles, mazes, and coloring activities that are coordinated with the stories. You can also click on a “sound” link to listen to some of the stories. One example is the book The Farm Animals – by Rolando Merino. It’s a free, complete, online, Click-a-Word Talking eBook! You can click and hear every individual word pronounced, hear every page read, and listen to real farm animal sounds!

There is real potential here for older siblings to read the online stories to their younger brothers and sisters – so it’s a friendly site for the entire family.

Going to this site is a little like going to the library without leaving home!

This website offers free art lessons including complete instructions and helpful tips.

The site was designed by an art teacher in Santa Barbara, California, who named the site after her favorite Crayola crayon color. She thinks that art should be a part of every child’s day. The lessons are themed around different animals, architecture, cultures, and geography, and many are inspired by children’s picture books.

When you get to the site, choose the grade level you are interested in. Click on any lesson title and a new page opens with complete instructions, illustrations, and photos and even videos. The lessons can be easily adapted to suit kids of all ages. In fact, the whole family may enjoy doing these activities together.

Then use the menu on the left to find:  

  • 45-minute art lessons
  • Art at Home
  • Art History Curriculum
  • Art Lessons by Subject
  • Art Lessons by Technique
  • Art Shows
  • How to Teach Art
  • and more!

While most of the information is geared for classroom teachers, it can be easily tweaked for use at home.
