Skybrary

Skybrary for schools

Skybrary for schools is a web-based digital library for kindergarten through third-grade students featuring hundreds of eBooks across multiple subject areas, each with optional narration; real-world video field trips; standards-aligned lessons; and easy-to-use teacher management tools. It combines several key components that help children develop their literacy skills: high-interest books, read-to-me features, and encouragement for independent reading.  

In Skybrary, students and teachers pilot their hot air balloon through seven fun and fantastical thematic islands, each home to a thrilling variety of engaging books and educational videos, promoting critical thinking and igniting children’s curiosity through a broad range of subjects.

Skybrary can be tailored to any instructional setting and a classroom subscription also includes individual student accounts, so students can read at home as well as in the classroom. Whether you have just a few or multiple devices, Skybrary supports whole class, small group, and independent learning.
