Online Animated Storybooks

There are many sites that offer online picture books for kids.  Here a few that I have come across:

Tumblebooks is a fantastic resource.  It has well over 200 books.  They all have the words highlighted as they are read. Another great feature is that the length of time is written so that you can plan according to how much time you have.  Tumblebooks requires a subscription but can be accessed easily by going through the website of a public library that subscribes to it.
Here is a link through such a library:

Storyline Online
This site from the screen actors guild offers 25 books read by well known actors.  All the stories are streamed through youtube but offers an alternative in case your school blocks youtube.  They also indicate the length of the stories and offer suggested activities to go along with them.

Kids AOL jr.
This site offers many stories categorized by topic (animals, families, fairy tales and rhyming).  The category that is perhaps the most interesting is the Arthur series by Marc Brown.  There are 15 Arthur stories (the original books, not the animated series).  The words are highlighted as they are read.
