Bookflix is the Best!

Over the last few years we have enjoyed many fantastic stories online through Bookflix.  With the advent of winter, two stories that stand out are:  Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. Snowflake Bentley is the amazing story of a man who becomes a self taught snowflake expert and learns how to photograph individual snowflakes to share with the world.  Narrator Sean Astin, the actor who plays Samwise from Lord of the Rings, does a fantastic job of bringing the story to life.  Do you want to know the best part of Bookflix?  Bookflix is free for all HDSB Students to use.  To find these great titles click on Elementary Internet Tools and click on the Bookflix icon at the bottom left. Use your HDSB student login and you are good to go. Want to search for a great title like Snowflake Bentley?
