Kanopy Kids is a great way to keep your little one busy. With books that come alive to educational and entertaining movies and television shows, Kanopy Kids is a safe and fun database for the whole family to enjoy. And, the best part, it’s completely free. Simply use your library card to access Kanopy and click on the “Go to Kanopy Kids” tab on the top right of your homepage.

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:

It is all about the alphabet! Next time won’t you sing with me? Here’s what you can tune into this week to learn all about silly trees, super heroes, and a french cat. Oui, oui!

Book

Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom! By Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault

This super fun and interactive book is set to beachy, fun music that will have you shaking and shimmying all the way up the coconut tree, with all of your favorite letters. But, uh-oh! Be careful when the tree gets too full. You don’t want to fall out and get a boo-boo like some of the letters.  

Did you love the illustrations by Lois Ehlert? Did you know that she is also a writer? Check out some of her books on Hoopla.

Educational

Super Why! By PBS Kids

Super Why! Is all about reading and adventure. Join some of your favorites fairytale superheroes in a magical world inside of the children’s library. The Super Why Superheroes go inside of your favorite fairytales to solve problems and learn literacy skills at the same time. Who is your favorite fairytale character? Let’s find them together in Super Why! on Kanopy Kids.
