    I’ve always loved literature and reading.  These were the very reasons why I became a Literacy Specialist.  I just couldn’t imagine anyone being deprived of the joy that comes from the written word and vowed to help anyone I could to become literate.  As an educator who loves being one, I will only stand behind educational programs or apps that spark this love of reading in children.  That is why I am so excited to share the launch of app eBook Plaza on PreK12 Plaza!

    eBook Plaza is a new, free, bilingual, multimedia resource, providing teachers with blended lessons supporting English-language standards.  It gives young readers access to hundreds of eBooks in a variety of reading levels that are available in both English and Spanish.  Integrating technology and reading is a match made in heaven since our younger generation is so tech savvy and they excel in any academic activity that incorporates it.

    My ten year-old son was very excited to try out the new eBook Plaza app.  He is an avid reader who also loves his electronic devices so he was immediately drawn to the fact that he is able to download this app directly to his tablet or smartphone.

    The fact that he is also extremely creative was also a factor since he is also able to use the app to to create his own eBooks, adding text, images, and his own voice.  This is a great way to develop his literacy skills and improve his phonemic awareness and print-concept awareness.

  1. Oh, you make my heart sing! I love that you’re a Literacy Specialist! ANYTHING to get kids reading more, and help them do so, is just wonderful! Reading is the true key to understanding.
    And this app looks great!

    What an amazing tool for the kiddos. I love with technology how many things like this are now available to kids.

  3. I have loved reading since I was a very young girl. I used to not do other things (dance practice, newspaper route and more) just so I could read more.

  4. What an interesting app to assist teachers and parents. Will have to check it out.

  5. This is awesome! I always like to know what apps are working for kids and which ones aren’t as effective!

  6. What a fun resource for children! It seems like he really enjoyed it and I love to see kids read.

  7. I have always been an avid advocate of reading and literacy! I also believe you should start a child out as quickly as possible. I love that this app also includes the ability to learn to compose and then “publish” their own writing. Drawing. I believe is also an integral part of being literate-even, if like me, you can’t draw a straight line. The fact that it is electronic is a big plus in this day and age.

  8. I always look for educational programs that creates reading interest in my kids and eBook Plaza sounds like a wonderful app to make it happen. I love it being a free app and it is quiet amazing that kids could create their own ebooks as well!

  9. This sounds like such a great app! I love to read as well and so far my kids love me reading to them. I really hope that continues.

  10. I didn’t know you are a Literacy Specialist! That is awesome! eBook Plaza is a great way to integrate education, literacy, reading and technology! #client

    My devices are old and so aggravating to try new apps but after trying for hours and slightly elevated nerves my granddaughters and I were able to create a small eBook. We will try again after Santa leaves some new technology. Our eBook is called “Me and my Nana” user name is dawnmonroe83 and Rylie. Downloaded with same email as commented with.
