Enjoy a free online reading of The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg as part of Barnes & Noble’s Online Storytime.
Each month, Barnes & Noble.com shares a different story read by an author or celebrity during its free Online Storytime. Your child will be able to listen to the story and see the illustrations from the books as the story is being read. It’s a simple way to entertain your child if you can’t make it to storytime at your local library, and unlike the library, you don’t have to be there at a certain time!
You can also access past online storytime selections. My boys especially love “Smash Crash,” but I’m pretty partial to “Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day.”
If you’re like me and have incredibly slow internet, be sure to click on the “video podcast” option and you won’t have to deal with all of the buffering as the story is read.
