BookFlix pairs video programs with related nonfiction Scholastic e-books for kindergartners through third-graders. Pairings include “Happy Birthday Moon” with “The Moon” and “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Can Type” with “Let’s Visit a Dairy Farm.”
So far, the offerings include 95 nonfiction book pairings, 25 of them in Spanish. More are planned for the future to provide new content for early readers.
BookFlix has interactive features, including a read-along option with word-by-word highlighting, narration and definitions of words to help readers and English-language learners. Readers can also link to educational games, biographies and interviews to learn about new authors and explore topics in the stories.
