So pleased to have my book "Deep in the Desert" included in Arbordale's FREE Summer Reading Around the World program. Twenty-five interactive e-books are available for kids to read this summer. All titles are also available in Spanish! And it's all FREE!

Arbordale understands how important it is for children to read over the summer and are making 25 interactive ebooks available to families across the country to read this summer for FREE! To help encourage children to read, we are providing bingo games with plenty of cards so siblings can compete, an "Around-the-World Passport" for children to paste in book cover "stamps" as they read the books, and a Pinterest page with all kinds of activities for families to do. In addition to reading, children will have fun touching animals and other objects to hear the sounds.

Each dual-language (English and Spanish) eBook may be read alone or with word highlighting and audio turned on. Speed control features can be slowed for struggling and learning readers or increased to boost reading speeds for proficient readers. Touch the animals and listen as they chirp, howl, and roar!

Fun, free activities will encourage children to read all summer. Learn more
