You’ve reached the THIS BOOK IS COOL! Webisode Library.
We’re so glad you’re here!

THIS BOOK IS COOL! is a series of 100 webisodes to encourage a love of reading. It premiered on June 1, 2020, and since then, thousands of children from across the Suncoast region have qualified to receive free books thanks to the generosity of The Patterson Foundation. In 2021, 9,912 children participated; combined, they read 184,738 books!

SCGLR encourages families, educators, public libraries, and community centers to continue to use THIS BOOK IS COOL! webisodes to promote the joys of literacy. Each webisode features:
  • A special guest sharing reasons why this book is cool
  • Vocabulary words and a suggested activity that is connected to the book
  • THIS BOOK IS COOL! activity guide with step by step instructions for each featured book
  • Bracelets and brag tag rewards for the children
