Q: How do I get Zoobooks or Zootles on my device?
A: For digital access on computer, iPad and (through web browsers) Kindle Fire and Nook, you can purchase a print subscription that includes digital access or buy a digital-only subscription directly from the App Store for iPad. You can also purchase single digital editions in the iBook and Kindle bookstores.
Zoobies will be available in digital editions later in 2013.
If you prefer a robust e-book experience, single digital editions of Zootles and Zoobooks can be purchased for the iPad through the iBook store and for the Kindle Fire in the Kindle bookstore at Amazon.com. Zootles iBook for the iPad includes a read aloud function that highlights each word in the text as it is spoken. This is a wonderful feature for emerging readers. It helps young minds associate words with text, an important part of learning to read.
