Lookybook has a free e-newsletter called Take a Look! that comes weekly.  This week’s had some great autumn picture books, as well as some newer books.
One great use for this website if you have a projector in your classroom would be to be able to project the pictures from the book to a larger group as you read a book aloud. You could even set up the projector with the book as a station/center for small group use. I think kids would think it was fabulous. I still get a kick out of clicking the book pages back and forth. I can’t think of any reason why the school filter would not allow the website, but I will have to play around with it at school this week. Another great use would be to use the computer(s) in your classroom for students to either use as a station, or to enhance your classroom library.

Here is one of the books featured in this week’s newsletter.

    I think Lookybook is so useful and fun. One of the things I wish, however, is that you could zoom in with more clarity. Some of the books with smaller fonts are not easily readable, and when you zoom in, they become pixelated and even harder to discern. Otherwise, it’s a wonderful way to browse books at home. Amazon’s “Look Inside” only gives you one or two pages, and I feel it’s not enough to decide upon a purchase.
