Teacher Review

Epic Books is the world's leading online children's subscription book service offering immediate, on-demand access to over 25,000 high-quality illustrated books and chapter books for children ages 12 and under.

Many selections are by well-known authors or from major publishers, and the collection includes Spanish/English, Chinese/English, and French/English bilingual books. 

Users can search books by subject, genre, and age, and some are audio or read-to-me versions where kids can follow along with highlighted words. On a Reading Stats page, time spent reading, number of pages flipped, and books read are tracked, and kids can earn badges and rewards based on certain milestones.

This app brings a virtual library of books to your kids' fingertips. With visually beautifully graphic novels, text-heavy chapter books, read-to-me picture books, and longer audio books, there are thousands of titles for kids age 2 to 12, with more titles added weekly.
