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).

    Sleeping Beauty is undoubtedly one of the most loved fairy tales of all time.
