  • …an amazing library of videos that build background knowledge and take the children on interesting virtual field trips. The kids are so engaged in reading anytime they are logged in. Their eyes light up as they “turn” through the pages of the digital books…

  • …I use the service all the time in my classroom with these students to give them the opportunity to read and listen to books on their level, and I have had A LOT of success with it. The students loved the variety and so did I. Thanks so much for a great year.Sara O.

  • Students enjoyed the informational books and learned new facts every time they read. Students who struggled reading difficult books were able to have the story read to them. This increased their understanding of the information.
