MonkeyReader.com Makes Children’s Literacy A Priority
When it comes to book purchases, I order from a certain large company that offers a wide selection, and great shipping options. Recently I stumbled on a great website that has opened my eyes up to other options out there, MonkeyReader.com.
MonkeyReader.com is an online children’s book store which has its roots in Philadelphia, PA., evolving from the popular bookstore Discovery Kids which opened up in downtown Philly in 1984.
The site includes books, music, and video products for both children and parents, though their focus is children’s literature. They even donate 5% of their profits to non-profit children’s literacy programs and organizations!
The reason I really enjoyed this website/shop is due to their other offerings; there is a great Parent and Teacher area where there are a ton of articles available, a “Recommended Reading” list by age, and an “Ask The Teacher” area where you can email in your question or suggest materials.
