Draw Me a Story

The Storybook Adventure at Literacy.govI blogged the other day about some new PSAs we have released in conjunction with the Ad Council that highlight lifelong literacy. And now we have added a new, interactive feature to our Literacy.gov Web site.

You can go on a ?Storybook Adventure? by following this link and clicking on ?play? once the animated banner fully loads.

Young people (or even older folks like me) can choose either ?The Wizard of Oz,? ?The Mermaid? or ?Aladdin.?

By correctly answering questions about your chosen story, you win several ?treasures? that can then be used to make a collage that can be sent to a friend or included in a collage gallery on our site. If you get stumped by a question, don?t worry: You can view the actual digitized book from the Library?s collections where you can find the answer.

Let your own adventure begin!

    Great stuff. The banner is located near the top of the page (I didn’t see it right away I was expecting something bigger). I also read the encouraging reading section. Thanks.

    Excellent stuff. Id have to agree with Dave though, the banner was not big enough, and it was tucked into the right. Took a while to find but it was worth it. Thanks.

    What a novel idea and a great image to boot. They are right about the banner though. Thanks for the idea, younger students of mine will love it.

    That was put together nicely, very unique. We like to pass along ideas such as this to the man teachers and students who visit SchoolWork. May we link directly to it?
