Browser Books

I was recently perusing Paul Hamilton’s Blog, The Treasure Chest of Free Stuff, when I came across Browser Books.

 This website was created to allow beginning readers to read books on their web browser. Readers can click on the triangle in the lower right-hand corner of each page to turn the pages. If they are unsure of a word, they can click on it to hear a child’s voice read the word to them.  

The site is easy to use.  Books can be searched by subject or level.  I’ll be adding to this to my computer center after Winter Vacation.

    Neat resource. I’ve seen this kind of thing in CD-ROM games but not online.

    This is terrific. I am working on a similar project and seeing this is totally inspiring. Wow!
