Books for Kids and Students

From picture books to graphic novels, fantasy to family fun, here you’ll find books for kids and students to amuse and amaze, to offer first experiences and to fire young imaginations.

Picture books help children develop a sense of self. The theatrical aspect of picture books helps to keep all your students engaged and interested. They play a critical role in learning, helping students develop self-awareness and teaching them how to make inferences, among other things.

We all know that reading is one of the most important fundamental skills children (or anyone) must master to succeed - to succeed in school and to succeed in life. Reading expands a child's vocabulary, develops their critical thinking skills, and improves their communication skills, amongst many other benefits. There are several reading apps that are designed to help children develop their literacy skills.

Most of these children's book apps are appropriate for beginning readers (or those learning how to read), but a few are still applicable for proficient readers as well (especially the apps focusing on comprehension).

    An interactive and bi-lingual (choice between Spanish and English) e-storybook, which tells the story of Nico and his dragon friend, Draco.  The storybook blends an audio-visual storybook with interactive, educational elements.

    Kids Academy developed this cute storybook app around the 5 Little Monkeys song - a super easy song that inspired a number of developers to create apps. What’s great about this one? The quality of the music and visuals is great, the fact that little learners (baby, toddlers and preschool children) are able to develop their language skills and learn new words and last but not least it is a fun app. So although the app is good value, priced at $1.99, we would have liked to have more features included and no 1st party advertising so for that reason we awarded it with a 3 star EAS Certification. We do have to say that we still haven’t figured out how to get the song out of our heads – it is so addictive!...’Five little monkeys jumping on the bed...’
