Two of the resources I am most excited about are the interactive Lightbox eBooks and AV2 World Languages audio book program from our friends at Follett Learning. As their press release stated, Follett has announced it is partnering with Weigl Publishers, Inc. to offer Lightbox, a PreK-12 interactive ebook platform, and AV2 World Languages, a K-3 ebook program, free of charge to schools worldwide through June 30.
Bringing learning to life, Lightbox uses video, audio, and text to explore content aligned with national and state standards and is ideal for student at-home use. With more than 1,000 high-interest titles in subjects such as science, language arts, and mathematics, Lightbox fills curriculum gaps while providing a fun, engaging, student-centered learning experience to improve comprehension, vocabulary, and engagement.
When I read this, I couldn't wait to login and get out school signed up!
To get started, I went to the registration link Follett provided here.
All students will find something for them in Lightbox as they can search various interest and reading levels, genres, subjects and more on the left hand side of the page.
Below are just some of the series available to engage students:
Just click on Open and...
...the buttons at the bottom left to navigate all of the Lightbox Standard Features including Audio, Video, Activities, Weblinks, Slideshows, Transparencies, Google Maps, Quizzes and Key Words.

I added this to the Places to Read Online Collection by Destiny, that you will find here,
and to our library and remote learning Google Site too. I sent the login information in an email and will highlight this resource on our Van Meter Library Voice Facebook and Twitter too.
All of the amazing Lightbox eBooks will play an important part in the learning, reading and fun that our students will have during this time. Thank you to our friends at Follett Learning for making these resources available to all of us.
