My girlfriend, a children’s librarian, is working from home as many are. With so many folks at home with their kids, I asked her to share her expertise and curate some particularly good links for kids stuck at home.
Here’s her list, pulled from a treasure trove of links that folks in her profession have been passing around.
Many children’s authors and illustrators are offering read-alouds and drawing lessons online. Deschutes Public Library put together this great list.
Tumble Book Library is a collection of animated talking picture books, read-alongs, ebooks, quizzes, lesson plans, and educational games. This one needs a library card. Don’t have a library card? You can often get one online. Portlanders can even get a Washington County card and have twice the options.
Free lessons and homeschooling support online for kids ages 4-8.
Fun, live cooking classes for kids
Michigan State University puts on family yoga, all ages and abilities welcome. No yoga experience or reservation required.
If people like these links she’s happy to share more. Just leave a comment.
