Summer reading is about to get sweeter with Sora!
Just like a popsicle on a warm summer day, our 2023 batch of Sora Sweet Reads titles is sure to be a refreshing addition to your digital library. On May 15th all school partners who have opted in (if you’ve done so previously, you’re set!) will receive a sweet new curation on their Sora Explore page full of 57 new titles for all ages K-12.
The collection this year boasts 34 juvenile titles, 10 young adult titles and 13 general adult-level titles. Among those are audiobooks, too, for those who prefer to listen by the pool, at the park or anywhere else they end up on summer vacation! The collection will be live for 10 weeks from May 15 through Aug. 28 and all titles are simultaneous-use. This means your students will all have access immediately and at the same time – way before their ice cream can melt in the summer sun!
Titles & resources
Are you ready to check out the titles? Head over to our Sora Sweet Reads website to view the titles before they go live in your collection on May 15 and to download some awesome resources as well. As you’re getting ready to wind down the school year, you can promote your upcoming new collection with our zoom background, fun graphics, bookmarks, or a printable reading challenge. There’s also a flyer to share with your school community as well.
