You should definitely read Paul’s post about the site, but it basically provides two great services to beginning readers:
* It has 1,000 simple books with audio support for the text immediately accessible to Beginning English Language Learners.
* It makes it as simple as you can get for students to create their own “talking” books using images from Flickr.
I’ve placed the link on my website under Stories.
I was also considering adding it to The Best Websites For K-12 Writing Instruction/Reinforcement. However, after thinking about it, I’ve decided to create a new “The Best…” list that will be titled The Best Places Where Students Can Write Online. I’ll be including Tar Heel Reader on that one. Look for it in a few weeks.
