EDUCATION DIVE: New Release of Children’s Digital #DiverseBooks

Children’s digital book publisher Antares Reading today announced it has published an additional 350 new fiction titles for young readers, bringing its total library of texts to 1,200. The new books include series as well as collections of books with recurring characters or subject matter. Futuristic fiction books cover topics based on news headlines, such as traveling to Mars for a year, while books on more familiar themes appeal to students with interests in nature, mystery, science, sports, adventure, the arts and more. Antares takes pride in offering visually engaging titles with characters representing various cultural and geographical differences appropriate across all reading levels. Antares will continue to add to its diverse library, keeping on the lookout for new topics and adventures that will continue to nurture a genuine excitement for reading.

Tracy Cline, Library Media Specialist from Butterfield Trail Middle School in Van Buren, Arkansas best summarizes the value of having Antares Reading titles available to her students: “One of the most important needs of students is to have access to a wide variety of texts, both print and digital, that meet their reading level needs now and as they grow as readers,” she says. “The fact that we are able to provide these texts digitally through school helps our students bridge the digital divide that many of our lower income students experience with a lack of Internet access at home.”
