Books for learning and growth

The premium collection includes a variety of books to meet the learning and socio-emotional needs of pre-primary and primary students:

  • For pre-primary children, the collection includes picture books, wordless books, and books that teach concepts and improve vocabulary.
  • For primary school students, books reinforce developing skills in letter and sound association.
  • For children able to tackle more complex texts, the collection includes fiction and non-fiction that help children progress academically while learning about the world around them.
  • For all ages, storybooks help parents and children explore emotions, fears, or dreams. During stressful times, reading stories for pleasure, discovery, or escape is an important way to support children.
