The YouTube Kids material pictured above were received.
The #ReadAlong with YouTube Kids mission to get kids excited about reading is a lot of fun and a great way to motivate kids to read.
During the month of June, publishers, authors, musical artists, and top creators have contributed over 100 new and original reading-related videos with a very captivating format – it’s called kinetic typography.
It’s the art of integrating text with movement. You can see an example here:
How fun is that?!
You can click here to download the YouTube for Kids App on Google Play or in the App Store.
Once in the app kids will be able to find videos from beloved classics to new found favorites.
All of the items in our surprise package are lots of fun and a great way to encourage the kids to keep reading this summer. Kora and Logan will especially be excited about the books from Simon & Schuster Kids.
On the Simon & Schuster YouTube channel kids can find book trailers, author interviews, fun and educational videos along with imaginative stories and informative content that foster a love for reading for all ages.
The Freckles channel was new to us and I was interested to learn that it’s a duo that started a band together with the goal of making family friendly music inspired and approved by kids.
On the SpacePOP YouTube channel, kids will find an animated band of five teenage princesses who who disguise themselves as musicians to form a band to save their home planet and spread the message of freedom and joy.
And how genius is this bookmark? Not only does it remind kids to read but it motivates them to keep doing so with the scratch offs for each day of the month.
As a parent I love the YouTube Kids App because there are so many inspiring and educational videos that are done in such a creative way the kids find learning fun! There is also a lot of pure fun on YouTube Kids which the kids enjoy as well. The #ReadAlong with YouTube Kids mission is sure to inspire many kids this month and I look forward to Kora & Logan with their noses in books and in the app all summer long.
