Enliven story time with animated storybooks and related resources freely available to all through 2023


MADISON – February 2, 2023 – For the remainder of this school year, add the thrill of animated storybooks and valuable instructional resources directly to your school and library digital learning spaces—for free! TeachingBooks and Vooks have partnered to provide a free collection of titles and resources for everyone in your community, including 35 Vooks animated storybooks and 300+ age-appropriate resources.

Remember your favorite picture book as a kid? Now, imagine that story unfolding right before your eyes—the pictures start moving, music begins playing in the background, a voice starts narrating the words aloud. It would be like watching a cartoon…but it’s actually your favorite book! In addition to the Vooks-created animated storybooks, this collection includes instructional resources from TeachingBooks, such as author interviews, activity guides, and story maps.

For this school year, educators, librarians, and families may visit TeachingBooks.net/Vooks to embed, link to, and share this engaging, fun content for free, directly on your school and library webpages.
