  • Hi! This seems to be a great resource site! I managed to open the ‘read online’ version of Ginger the Giraffe but EVERYTHING else comes up as not available yet… when i went back to see if i could open Ginger the Giraffe again it also said not available to read online yet… Seems like a glitch or something. I’d love to explore more of these resources without downloading them.
    Please advise 🙂
    Thank you
