Epic! unlimited online children's books

A couple of weeks ago, we were looking for new apps for one of my school iPads when we came across a really neat app! It's available on Andriod, IOS, and the web. Parents and families can subscribe for a monthly fee. The best part...it's FREE for elementary teachers and librarians in the US & Canada!! Yep you read that right, FREE!! 

Now let's discuss exactly what the app is all about...
Epic! is an unlimited online children's book resource. Internet connection is needed to stream the books, but they can be saved for offline reading as well. It is designed for ages 12 and under. There are thousands of books available, and they continue to add hundreds of new titles each week! 

The Epic! library includes picture books, chapter books, comic books, non-fiction books, and junior novels from leading publishers including HarperCollins and National Geographic. There's also a huge selection of titles with audio read by some of the industry's most talented narrators. 

Educators can have up to 36 students per account. You can set up preferences and track student progress. Accounts can be synced to multiple devices (including each child's progress). Kids can unlock badges and rewards. It gives extra motivation and allows them to customize the look and feel of the app. 

Promise we're not being paid to rave about this app...we just really love it!
