Britannica Digital Learning is developing over 300 new eBooks aimed at young children this June. The majority of new titles will be solely aimed at K6 and below and will encompass science, social studies, language arts and math will be available by June, each of them curriculum-aligned, covering topics such as animals, colors, holidays, elementary math concepts, astronomy, famous people and hundreds of others.
The new eBooks Britannica is developing will add to their existing portfolio and by the end of the year should surpass 850 titles. The vast offerings are mainly aimed towards elementary-schools. The new books are rigorously edited, extensively illustrated and designed to be enjoyable and engaging to students. They provide schools and libraries with a large selection of high-quality texts for classroom study and research and will help satisfy the non-fiction reading requirements of the new Common Core State Standards.
“These new titles represent a treasure trove of great reading and research for kids and a big asset for teachers,” said Michael Ross, general manager of Britannica Digital Learning and a senior vice president at Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc. “Kids can access them anytime, anywhere, so never again will they have to worry about leaving a book they need for homework at school, or vice versa.”
Schools are in a unique position to try the first 15 pages of each Britannica eBook for fee at ebooks.eb.com. Pricing, titles and more information are available at 1-800-621-3900.
