  1. Hey Cathy – We just updated Bears Snores on to a read aloud video of the author herself reading the whole story aloud. Have fun!

  2. Dylan the Villian should be removed! To use words like demonic and diabolical with children in stories is unacceptable. Making these words familiar and no big deal is terrible!

  3. I was pretty pleased to discover this page.

    I wanted to thank you for ones time just for this fantastic read!!
    I definitely loved every little bit of it and I have you book-marked to look at new information in your website.

  4. The “Tek the modern cave boy” link is not working so I had to search it on the site that it gave me. I am using the computer and apparently the link it goes to does not exist.

  5. Hm. It also worked fine on my iPad. “I Am the Book” is a youtube video from the Reading Rainbow channel. It isn’t anything unusual.

    Are there other links you are having trouble with? Sometimes stories do not work on the iPad because they are made with FLASH, which the iPad does not support. Try this link for stories for the iPad: http://www.indypl.org/readytoread/?p=15772. It is not as beautiful as this page with all the book jackets, but there are over 500 stories to choose from!

  6. I am looking at this Alijah. The link worked fine on my computer (although I had to click on a “Skip this ad” link before it would play. I am going to look on my iPad now and see what happens. Just a second.

  7. Question:
    What is overall purpose of this website? Was it created simply just children more into reading, or was it just a move forward into a more technology based era?

  8. It is wonderful Tonda, that your grandson is enjoying stories so much! Is there a math or non-fiction subject he is really interested in? I am happy to add some reading ideas for him!

    You can see an index of all Ready to Read lists at http://www.indypl.org/readytoread/?page_id=11502. If he likes non fiction he might like Picture Book Biographies http://www.indypl.org/readytoread/?p=5245. Several of the lists are about animals, but are primarily fiction, but not all.

  9. Wonderful! If there are other kinds of resources you would like help locating, let me know and I’ll see if I can help. Have a great day!

  11. The link to this site (Read to Me) appears to be broken and I can’t seem to access the books. Am I doing something wrong?
