Fable Learning Digital Books (formerly StarWalk Kids)

Many of my out-of-print books are getting a new life at StarWalk Kids Media Digital Library.  They have been redesigned with a contemporary look for today's readers.
Note: StarWalk Kids has recently been acquire by Isabella Products and is now known as Fable Learning.
The books are available via the browser-based Fable Reader, which works on most any device, including desktop and laptop computers, tablets, smartphones, and interactive whiteboards. It’s anytime access—students with an account can log in from home or anywhere they have an Internet connection. And multiple users, whole classes, can read the same title simultaneously.
Designed for classroom use, the books accommodate notetaking and highlighting. Educators can search for books by author, title, keyword, subject, Lexile level, alphabetic reading level, and Common Core (CC) State Standards links. An especially handy feature for younger users is the ability to navigate by thumbnail images of each page, which appear along the bottom of the Reader. “Teaching Links” match each title to relevant CC standards and provide suggested activities.

Many of the Fable Learning titles are also available on Amazon as Kindle books.  You can search by title on Amazon or link directly from the Fable Learning catalogue.
