Books on Movie

We are presently compiling a list of books on video to add to the website’s free literacy resources. In lieu of the new “movie page” specifically for this purpose, I’m collecting links here (by way of comments), and on the new category links list in the sidebar.

If you haven’t yet put your book on video, here’s my advice.

– Windows Movie Maker is free for windows users, and seems very easy to use.

– Youtube accounts are likewise easy to set up, free, and you can upload your book as soon as it is finished, there are a number of other similar sites too which are valuable for countries where youtube is banned, for example Turkey.

– It’s my feeling ideally to be a good resource for reading, a book should have the audio along with the words, and to best display the author and illustrator’s work a visual of the picture which matches the page being read. This is easier said than done, and each picture book format will require different formatting to achieve this. However this type of format will enable a read along, and aid comprehension for ESL or EAL students.

-This link resource is aimed at picture books, an audio list will be included for chapter books later

Comments on this from teachers or people working in early literacy education would be appreciated.

Any book which is free online in it’s full version is acceptable for submission to be included in this resource.

I’ll look forward to “seeing” some more books read here!

    I produced one of the first free early learning reading books on YouTube a few years ago. Making it a family affair, with my kids, art, voice over by all family members and music by my husband. It actually was a lot of work but we received positive feedback and raised money for charity. You can find the FREE books on my website = they are posted on YouTUBE as well. These stories have also been placed on CD with other FREE stories and distributed to poor kids in Africa etc to assist them with literacy. Feel free to add links to your site.
