Kanopy Kids recently added Sesame Street in Spanish and Highlights
This month Greenburgh Public Library's Youth Service Department got very familiar with one of our favorite resources for children and families - Kanopy Kids, a subdivision of the on-demand streaming video platform for public libraries and universities, Kanopy (all Kanopy member accounts have access to Kanopy Kids).

Kanopy Kids is appropriate for children 2 and up, with a focus on ages 2-8. It features a diverse selection of educational and entertaining content in the form of movies, TV series, animated storybooks, live action, and animated favorites.

A Cat in Paris by Jean-Loup Felicioli; Alain Gagnol
