Another great thing about Kanopy Kids is that it doesn’t use up your Kanopy viewing credits. You have unlimited access to Kanopy Kids with absolutely no strings attached. The only question is, what will you read and watch today?

Every other week we’ll dive into a new and fun offering that you can find on Kanopy Kids. Along with a book/movie review and links to other great resources. I hope you will come back often and explore with us the amazing world of Kanopy Kids.

This week’s Kanopy Kids selection is for the birds! All about birds, that is. Here’s what you can tune into this week to learn all about funny birds, helping birds, and interesting birds.
