Materials for BookSpring Partners
Literacy kits, materials, and activities are what build a culture of literacy. All of our partner resources from kits to volunteers are designed to build engagement and interaction around reading. We value our BookSpring partners and will work with you on a case-by-case basis to enable our programs to continue. This includes curbside delivery and the opportunity to ship books out via the US Mail directly to the families of program partners who are affected by the current health crisis.
Please reach out to Shannon Thorne at firstname.lastname@example.org or (512) 472-1791 x 110 for current updates.
Also, if you’re looking for materials and activities right now to help your children get inspired about reading, please see our new digital books and resources online for ages 3-5 and 6-8: at Bibi’s Weekly Themes and our growing resource of online Read Alouds and Book Reviews on BookSpring’s YouTube Channel. As Open Educational Resources, you may use, link, download, and share freely with your classes, children, and families. We also recommend these sources for digital books: Storyweaver, Unite for Literacy, and The Fable Cottage.
