Read To Me-- Awesome Websites

Read to Me is an engaging site where kids can listen to books told by celebrities. 
The celebrities are all Las Vegas performers and are pretty entertaining. Kids may recognize some of them but probably not all.
Printable PDFs of lesson plans are available as well as the author’s site, celebrity reader’s site and publisher site. Stories can be viewed full screen.
I watched a couple and they were very good, something I think students will enjoy. The Read to Me videos took a bit of time to load so I would suggest loading them before showing to students.
Notice in the screenshot above that they even have one in Spanish. Would be great if they added a few more like this. They also had a few for students who are hearing impaired, which uses American Sign Language.

Another great website that has high quality books online: We Give Books!
