The world has changed in just a few weeks and everything we have taken for granted has now been put on hold. Support our first responders and medical professionals who are on the front lines of treating patients.
In the meantime, for all you parents at home with children... good luck keeping them occupied!
With schools and libraries closed, it is a challenge for mothers and fatthers to homeschool in this era of instant distractions by phone, tablet, and computer.
Still sharing a good storybook is the way for children to stoke their imaginations and learn something new at the same time.
To help in this endeavor, we offer some free and fun goodies for your families.
For most of our stories, we offer free coloring pages (which we often provide at our book events). Download them from our gallery, open them up in Adobe Acrobat Reader, and print them out.
We also have curriculum guides for some of our stories and series. Now that parents are teachers, feel free to share these brief and engaging activity sheets with your kids. Lesson plan packets have:
- A page of questions encouraging readers to think about how the story relates to their lives
- Word Search
- Mini-Crossword Puzzle
- and maybe more!
