Alma's Way51UTyI50avL._SY498_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

Alma’s Way is an engaging, animated series for children ages 4-6 created by Sonia Manzano, who played Maria on Sesame Street. It has a strong emphasis on social emotional learning and finding your voice! The series stars 6-year-old Alma Rivera, a proud and confident Bronx-born, Puerto Rican girl, who lives in the Bronx with her family and a diverse group of friends and neighbors. In each story, Alma speaks directly to the audience in her “Think Through” moments, where she learns to think for herself, make decisions and understand other people’s points of view—while making lots of messy and hilarious mistakes all along the way.Watch full episodes of Alma’s Way on

Epic! Books for Kidsepic.png

Inspiring the next generation to develop a love of reading and learning.

Epic was born out of a single question: How do we make books more accessible to kids? As parents, it always seemed strange to us that our kids could so easily play games and watch videos on their iPhones and iPads, but the same couldn’t be said for books. So in 2013, we decided to build the first “epic” reading experience, designed just for kids. Today, Epic has grown into an award-winning subscription service, which gives millions of families and classrooms instant, unlimited access to thousands of books, videos and quizzes from leading publishers to help kids everywhere read, learn and grow.
