Just Books Read Aloud is a site where over 700 videos of children's books being read aloud have been collected for students to peruse.
The website says:
- Children can't navigate away to follow other YouTube leads.
- There are only children's books on the site.
- While reading the videos generally only show the books versus seeing the reader, which I think distracts from the book.
- Animation on the site is limited to nice editing jobs that zoom to parts of the page.
- The books are frequently reordered to encourage listening to new books.
This is a great option for younger students to choose books in a safe way, with a lot of variety. There is even an option for books to be read in other languages. This will work in Safari on our student iPads. Give it a try and tell us how you like it!
