Smile FREE Read together book and create a book

Hi

Opportunity to claim your free book or even better to create your own storybooks using

w w w . wheredidtherivergo. co . uk /?CMP=par_ngl

I have had to make add spaces to the web address so don't simply copy and paste - CAN SOMEONE MAKE CLICKY PLEASE! I can't post with weblinks yet!

If you decide to create your own you can, with your little ones sit down and change the names and charactors/animals etc and even drag on the different pictures etc. Great to encourage reading and spelling or even identifying different animals etc. Once created you can print your book out or save it to read anytime or just go through it again and change it anyway you like.

Link is part of the Becta funded Next Generation Learning website, a flagship education website.

Hope you enjoy!

DC

Default free book for children

okay if you have a centre near you, but for me I might as well go to my local bookshop and buy a book, coz it would cost me more in petrol to go and collect the book from the nearest centre.
