Featured Database: BookFlix & TrueFlix
BookFlix and TrueFlix are interactive databases you can use in the library or from home with your Chester County Library System card! Bookflix is an interactive program that pairs fiction and nonfiction text for pre-readers and readers from preschool through third grade. BookFlix has digital book pairings arranged around topics such as Animals and Nature, ABC’s and 123’s, or Celebrations. Each pair of books also includes activities, a brief biography of the author, and a lesson plan to assist parents and educators. Many of the books included in the database, such as Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and Diary of a Fly, are also popular titles available through your library!
TrueFlix is a resource for elementary aged students that encourages them to learn more about nonfiction topics in a variety of subject areas. Using Scholastic’s popular True Book series, each topic begins with a video that introduces the subject to build background knowledge and includes a digital version of the full text of the True Book title. Each title also includes an “explore more” feature that directs readers to related content that can be used to learn more about the topic. Let your young reader learn about the California Gold Rush, Malala Yousafzai, the Undersea World, and more from the convenience of your computer or device!
