May 7, 2010 – Thank you to all the Storyline Online supporters who visited us Friday a.m. at www.storylineonline.net for the premiere of the interactive website’slatest story, Harry the Dirty Dog, read by the treasured Betty White with a special introduction from Betty’s dear friend Valerie Harper!
The story is now streaming at www.storylineonline.net and, along with several activities, is available 24 hours, 7 days a week for all to view.
Harry the Dirty Dog was written by Gene Zion and illustrated by two-time Caldecott Honor winner Margaret Bloy Graham over 50 years ago. We are delighted that HarperCollins has given us the opportunity to share this story with you. There have been many requests to feature classics for young children and we are pleased to add yet another quality story to our library of books.
Please know that funding remains a concern for this important effort in the SAG Foundation’s Children’s Literacy Initiative and that we are truly grateful for the encouraging comments and financial assistance Storyline Online has received. As we continue approaching companies and organizations to underwrite Storyline Online, we will try to fulfill the many requests and suggestions we receive from teachers, parents and children around the world.
From all of us at the SAG Foundation, thank you!
Remember to keep visiting us at www.storylineonline.net
