Enhanced E-Books

The universe begins to look more like a great thought than a great machine.
-Sir James Jeans

Imagination is the key to a happy, fulfilled life. It must be fostered, encouraged, and challenged from an early age. A child’s imagination is like a canvas. Each stroke of a brush leaves an imprint that becomes a part of the whole painting. It is up to us, the adults, to ensure a child has enough colors to paint with.

In our children’s enhanced e-books, we offer an array of colors that will captivate a child’s imagination by allowing them to become a part of the story when reading on their own, listening to the written word, learning, solving puzzles and mysteries, and participating in the book’s illustrations and animations.

To check out or to purchase our enhanced e-books, visit iBooks on iTunes or click on the book cover image below.
