Online reading books – 2 options for our families during school closure

reading for pleasure

Here at Edenside, helping our children to develop a love of literature is part of our “Edenside Offer”; something we want for all our our children. During the school closure, we would have loved to provide real reading books but, due to concerns about infection control. we decided against this.

However, in these modern technological times, there are alternatives to paperback reading books; e-books!

We have spent some time investigating some options and have decided to recommend the following:

P1-3 = Oxford Owl. All the eBooks are free to use, but you will need to register or log in on the to read your book. Please note, the eBooks are not optimised for mobile phones and are best viewed on a computer, laptop, or tablet.

P1 – 7 = Epic. They offer a free subscription for 30 days and have a large selection of fiction and non-fiction books.

We hope these options are helpful.
