Kids @ Random

One way to get kids hooked on reading is to introduce them to a series of books with characters they can love. Random House has a section on their website that is just for kids, and that features "mini-sites" for several of their best-loved series, such as Junie B, Magic Tree House, Thomas and Friends, Barenstain Bears, and more. For a full list of the mini-sites offered by Random House, click here. Students will have fun exploring all the activities offered on this site!
