From the main page, you can browse by subject categories, including everything from biographies, governments, sciences, to the human body and outer space.
There are several topics of eBooks available within each subject category. Once you find a topic you’re interested in, you can watch a video about it, read the eBook, access related articles, websites, project ideas, activities and more. Each topic even includes a lesson plan for teachers, homeschooling parents, etc.
Also like BookFlix, the eBooks have a read-along function that highlights words as it reads aloud. This feature is great for early-readers.
