1. Kids love them!
We’ll let the comments speak for themselves!
- “I read this story aloud to one of my classes. Each time we stopped, they begged me to continue!” —Picnic Basket reviewer for The Milo & Jazz Mysteries, book #1
- “The students LOVED these books because they were so easy, fun, and interesting to read.” —Learning Magazine reviewer for Social Studies Connects
- “My students loved hearing the silly stories. They keep asking for more!” —Teachers’ Choice Award reviewer for Animal Antics A to Z
2. Enriched reading experience
Every Kane Press book combines a good story with an educational intent, engaging all kids—from true bookworms to reluctant readers!
Our books focus on a single topic and use fun stories to demonstrate how content-area subjects such as math, science, and social studies connect to a child’s everyday life. Characters tackle kid-sized dilemmas and solve problems that children will relate to.
3. One word: Value
Ever wish you could stretch that budget? Wish you had more time for lessons? Wish you could help your child get a jump on the learning process—without handing him or her a textbook? When you read a Kane Press book, you get three things for the price of one: Each story does triple duty, employing a kid-friendly approach to authentic content while supporting reading comprehension skills and critical thinking skills.
4. Extra! Extra!
Activities, puzzles, and experiments in the backs of the books help bring each lesson to life. Activities available for free on our website support and extend lessons with additional hands-on games and creative challenges that stimulate children’s natural curiosity.
5. Award-winning and well-reviewed titles and series
