Ran out of books?

If you are getting to the stage where your child has run out of books. Below, please find links to several E-book libraries: 

Alternatively, there are nearly 500 articles under the ‘Accelerated Reader Articles’ button that your child could choose to read and then take a quiz on.

Note: Once on the Accelerated Reader Articles section, ATOS BL stands for the child’s accelerated reader book level. Please try to ensure that children read articles that are within their school reading levels.

If it ever gets to the stage where E-books or online articles are not enough, please send across an email and we can arrange leaving some physical books for you to collect.
