Resources for Parents of
Alvie's Friends

Sometimes Alvie likes to read stories about other animals and their fun adventures. Here are links to some great websites with other stories and activities for children:

Bab Books Online Stories   Light up Your Brain   The Best Kid Sites on the Web   Online Stories for Kids  

Children's Story Books Online   Elisa Gianoncelli's Website   American Folk Lore


Thanks to Bethany in Ms. Elizabeth Massingill's first grade class, here is a web site with a list of resources for parents, teachers, students, and children to help make reading an enjoyable experience for all.

Your children will enjoy listening to you read the stories about Alvie to them. When you finish reading each story, talk with your children about the "What Alvie Learned" section and ask them the discussion questions at the end of each story. Your children will grow and learn from these fun adventures.
