Access Video On Demand

“…the excitement is instantaneous, and the content is really great…I would wholeheartedly recommend it.”

Janie Hermann, Princeton Public Library

Just For Kids

“The unlimited access of Just for Kids allows families to binge-watch this great content.”

Gretchen Hardin
Bee Cave Public Library (TX)

“Just for Kids video is fun for the whole family. It is both safer and cheaper than streaming and it is even educational. We would strongly recommend for teachers, parents and others who work with kids. I personally like that it is ad-free and a controlled environment where kids are not exposed to inappropriate content. You can give them a tablet or other screen and let them binge out and know that they will learn and be safe.”

Katie Hill
Orange County Library, Virginia

The World Almanac® For Kids

“Entertaining is not a word usually applied to reference works…but for The World Almanac® for Kids…the adjective fits. In addition, the product is a reliable resource for homework and projects, and helps kids learn research skills in a safe and trusted content site…delivers kid-friendly, interesting and, yes, even entertaining content…”

The ComputED Gazette

The World Almanac® For Kids Elementary

…provides a little something for everyone…The information and visuals are accessible…Casual browsers will find fun things to explore…
