Stellaluna Goes Digital

 

 

 

 

 

With the rise of technology in our everyday lives, it’s important to look at how we are using it with our children. Enhanced interactive digital books are a great way to engage with your child while reading to them. Tapping, moving, and reading are all important when using these apps. The Stellaluna app by Living Books is both fun and educational.  You can find more storybook apps on our iPads in the Family Place.

Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea! by Ben Clanton

Cover image for Narwhal : unicorn of the seaMany people think that Narwhal are imaginary creatures.  Actually, like Belugas, they are a part of the whale family.  Narwhal have a horn like a unicorn, but it is more like a tusk or a tooth.

In Ben Clanton’s first book in his Narwhal and Jelly series, Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea!, readers are introduced to Narwhal and his new friend, Jelly Fish.  Together with their other underwater friends, they form a pod (that’s what a group of Narwhal is called), have parties, create imaginative stories, and eat yummy waffles.  With a lot of fun illustrations and brief text, beginner chapter book readers will enjoy this new series while learning a little bit about Narwhal, fact and fiction.
