01.01.70 | Katie Allen
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) has teamed up with Barnes & Noble’s Nook to deliver e-readers with pre-loaded material to schoolchildren in the US.
The companies today (3rd May) announced partnership to deliver several K-12 grade titles to schools pre-loaded across the Color and Simple Touch devices. Schools can choose between new or refurbished readers, and the aim is to “provide a clear path to digitisation of a school’s reading program".
According to HMH, the titles include “HMH favorites like Island of the Blue Dolphins, Gathering Blue, and The Willoughbys . . . age-appropriate, International Reading Association (IRA)-recommended selections".
Linda K Zecher, HMH president and c.e.o., said: “As one of the world’s largest providers of K-12 educational content, we aim to change students’ lives by fostering passionate, curious learners. This partnership with Barnes & Noble will ensure that students are inspired and encouraged to continue their learning through a love for reading.”
