What do we think?

There is an amazing selection of books to choose from in many different languages and genres. They are easy to access on any device, at any time and place, and can be tailored to the reader’s individual needs by changing the style and weight of the font, the text and line spacing. We also like the fact that children can check the meaning of words and make notes about their reading.
