Children's Book Week BadgeChildren's Book Week 2016 #CBW16 is May 2nd - 8th, and Learning Ally wants to make sure ALL children are able to participate through accessible books! To that effort, we're offering a 20% discount on all new individual audiobook subscriptions (you must have a certified print disability to be a Learning Ally audiobook subscriber). “My son quickly went from having daily meltdowns about reading and homework to racing home after school to 'ear read' yet another book! Not only did it boost his confidence in reading (and in school overall), he was able to read what his peers were reading, and most importantly, he started loving school again." ~ Heather Hardeman How do you join? About Children's Book Week Established in 1919, Children's Book Week is dedicated to instilling a lifelong love of literacy in children. It's the longest-running national literacy initiative. The week is administered by Every Child A Reader with the Children's Book Council as the anchor sponsor. Learning Ally has teamed up with AIM-VA (Accessible Instructional Materials) to make sure all children get the chance to participate. Both organizations help students who have print disabilities. Check out some of the Children's Book Week featured books that are available on Learning Ally for download: The Terrible TwoThe Terrible Two by by Mac Barnett; Jory John (As told to); Kevin Cornell (Illustrator) It's prankster against prankster in an epic war of trickery, until the two finally decide to join forces and pull off the biggest prank ever seen: a prank so huge that it would make the members of the International Order of Disorder proud.     Ef DeafoEl Deafo by Cece Bell A 2015 Newbery Honor Book Going to school and making new friends can be tough. But going to school and making new friends while wearing a bulky hearing aid strapped to your chest? That requires superpowers! Note: El Deafo is a graphic novel, so your child will want to have a hard copy on hand to go along with Learning Ally's classic audio.
