First Chapter Fridays on Facebook Premiere

For elementary-aged kids. Listen to the first few chapters of a recommended book and decide if you want to read more! While these are "videos", there will be nothing to see beyond the book's cover, author information, and available formats. Take some time to just close your eyes, listen, and discover a great new read. Recordings will be archived on Facebook and YouTube to listen to any time.
