Early World of Learning, World Book Online’s early childhood digital resource, is a child’s first encyclopedia, eBook, and introduction to core early concepts.  With read-aloud across all functions, the 60 stories in “World of Reading” and “Trek’s Travels” tie learning together through videos, games, and printable activities.  Twelve stories are available in both Spanish and English, and the worksheets also offer written instructions in Spanish.  Classic songs, nursery rhymes, and fairy tales complete the program, and are often included in the lesson plan for each story.
