Resources and Events
Not long ago we celebrated Nonfiction November, and had so much fun we thought we’d celebrate some of our favorite fiction books next! Throughout the month of February we’ll be sharing read-aloud videos of fiction picture books—one video for every school day in the month! The videos are yours to share with students and readers, whether you’re watching them in your classroom or library or using them for hybrid and distance learning.
Participants will receive an email every week beginning January 29 with links to videos for the week. We’ll also include lists of related books your readers might enjoy as well as downloadable activities. Fiction February is free to join—head to our sign-up page to register!
