Freebie Friday - Rankus coloring page and online book sites

Happy Friday dear Reader friends--

The Queen here with another Freebie Friday coloring page.

Some of you may have met Rankus the Dragon when he talked about writing for elementary students. If you missed his fun lesson, go back over the past Wizardly Writing Wednesdays and take a look.

For today, you can find his coloring page by clicking the link.

Color Rankus the Dragon reading a book. What books have you read this summer? Write the titles on the background. Maybe Rankus has read them, too.   

Here are some other fun places you can check out for books online:

UTales is an online interactive bookstore where parents and teachers can find loads of picture books.

Storyline is a video collection featuring actors from the Screen Actor's Guild reading picture books. The videos transition smoothly from the actor/actress holding the book to pictures from the book. The videos pan from the actor to the book smoothly and often have music accompaniment to go along with the story. The experience is quiet enjoyable. 

Whichever way you choose to read a story, do make sure you spend time every day with a book. It will enrich your life beyond measure.

The Queen
