Website & App Review: Professor Garfield

PROFESSOR GARFIELD is a free website containing interactives that allow students to explore, create, read, and play. 

The READ! section includes a wonderful selection of e-comics such as theaward winning THE BIG NO-NO!, the 2010 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award Winner. These e-books are available in five languages. The Storyline Online section contains dozens of videos featured celebrities reading favorite picture books aloud.

The CREATE! section provides a variety of online tools children can use to create their own comics.

Of particular interest to teacher librarians are the many interactives in the EXPLORE! section focusing on topics related Cyberbullying, Forms of Media, Fact or Opinion, and Online Safety. Many of these lessons are also available at the iTunes App Store as apps.
