Simply use your library card to access Kanopy and click on the “Go to Kanopy Kids” tab on the top right of your homepage. 

Another great thing about Kanopy Kids is that it doesn’t use up your Kanopy viewing credits. You have unlimited access to Kanopy Kids with absolutely no strings attached. The only question is, what will you read and watch today?

Every other week we’ll dive into a new and fun offering that you can find on Kanopy Kids. Along with a book/movie review and links to other great resources. I hope you will come back often and explore with us the amazing world of Kanopy Kids.

This weeks Kanopy Kids selection:


Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae

Gerald is an awkward, clumsy giraffe who doesn’t think he can dance. The warthogs can waltz, and the rhinos rock-and-roll but Gerald is laughed at because no one thinks he has what it takes. But, when the annual Jungle Dance in Africa approaches, will Gerald put his best foot forward and show the other animals that he can dance? 

You can also find Giraffes Can’t Dance on Hoopla.

Why stop there? You can find more great adventures about dancing on Kanopy, Hoopla, Overdrive, and Tumblebook.


Cyberchase is a five part series that explores the adventures that you can have with math. Whether you love math or not, everyone can be good at it. With online quests and games, you and your little ones will be on your way to learning, building skills, and enjoying math. 

Want more fun with math? Check out Hoopla, OverDrive Nonfiction and Fiction, and Tumblebook.

Television Series

The Berenstain Bears have been a staple on television and on bookshelves for years. Why not enjoy them with your little ones today. This loveable bear family will teach some important lessons in growing up, being a nice person, helping out, and much more.

We hope you’ll click on over to Kanopy Kids and discover for yourself some new favorites and old pastimes that everyone in your family will enjoy. 

Until next time, we hope you are safe and sound under your canopy and that you will join us using our Kanopy!
