Reminder: Sora Sweet Reads starts April 15!
Searching for more reading resources to serve your remote learners? Then you’re in for a treat! Sora Sweet Reads – OverDrive’s rebranded summer reading program – starts tomorrow! From April 15–July 31, our school partners in the U.S. and Canada can access 30 free, simultaneous-use juvenile and young adult ebooks (and select audiobooks) to keep students buried in the Sora reading app all spring and summer long!
For partners outside the U.S. and Canada, Sora Sweet Reads will make up to 20 no-cost titles available to primary and secondary student readers, with content availability varying by region.
No opt-in is necessary to participate in this program. All schools with Sora will automatically be added, with titles prominently displayed in the app, making it easy for students to find their next sweet read.
Read on for a delightful sample of what Sora Sweet Reads has to offer (view the full title lists for both collections here).
Titles for juvenile readers
From timeless classics like Peter Rabbit to more modern favorites like The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, there’s something enjoyable for all your younger readers.
