Lit Kits

A great way to take storytime and learning home with you. These kits help support success in school by providing families with hands-on strategies for building pre-reading and literacy skills while having fun and bonding with your child. Our Early Lit Kits are designed for our youngest “readers”, and contain 3-4 books on a theme, toys or manipulatives, and a caregiver guide with suggested songs and activities.

Talking Books

These combine picture books and non-fiction with audio recordings that capture children’s attention and make learning and literacy development fun. The permanently attached reader transforms an ordinary print book into an all-in-one read-along. There’s no need for computers, tablets or CDs. Children simply push a button to listen and read.

Playaway Launchpads: Pre-K Academy

Launchpad Pre-K Academy gives preschool-aged children 5 different paths to explore on their way to kindergarten. Using this Academy can help little learners develop the skills needed to enter their first year of school and inspire them to try new things with confidence.

Books on DVD

These audiovisual adaptations bring outstanding children’s picture books to life and help children fall in love with books and reading. Our DVDs are word-for-word adaptations of the books they are based on, and help all readers improve their fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
