In celebration of Children’s Book Week Sylvan Dell offered all eBooks free, bringing science and math learning to children in and out of school. The Sylvan Dell site offers readers the leisure of flipping and reading, or auto flip with audio in either English or Spanish. Each book has a For Creative Minds section of custom teaching activities, where parents or teachers are able to guide children through the scientific or mathematical facts in the book.
