TEACHING LINK: Malala Yousafzai: Warrior with Words

The inspiring, true story of Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani girl who stands up and speaks out for every child’s right to education. Though she and two of her schoolmates were targeted by a Taliban gunman, a life-threatening injury only strengthened her resolve. Malala spoke at the U.N. on her 16th birthday in 2013, nine months after she was shot. Author and journalist Karen Leggett Abouraya, past President of the Children’s Book Guild in Washington, D.C. and author of Hands Around the Library: Protecting Egypt’s Treasured Books, brings Malala’s story to life for young readers. Malala’s story is more than a biography of a brave and outspoken teenager. It is a testament to the power of education to change the world for boys and girls everywhere. A StarWalk Kids Media Digital Original. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book are being donated to The Malala Fund. Learn more at

Tick Tock, Book Boox: Jamie La Rue's take on Total BooX (American Libraries eContent Blog)

A vendor somewhere had to try this approach: metered reading. And now someone has. Yoav Lorch is the engaging and insightful CEO of an Israeli company called Total Boox. I met with him at PLA in March, and got a guided tour of his product. Total Boox is based on the premise that most of the usage limits that apply to physical books make no sense at all when applied to their digital counterparts. Only one person can read the book at a time? People have to wait for the book to come back? The book is now due whether or not you’ve finished it, and you can't renew it? For crying out loud (thinks the library patron), why? It’s a computer file, right? Has no one (for instance, librarians) heard of file sharing? So far, the problem has been that there is no commonly accepted method of checking out ebooks that balances the sincere desire of all parties that there be payment for each use while taking advantage of the technological advantages of the ebook. Enter Total BooX...

Video Tour of our StarWalk Reader

It is increasingly clear that today's kids - digital natives - enjoy digital reading1. In fact, a recent Scholastic study found that one-third of K-8 students would spend more time reading if they had access to eBooks2, and multiple studies by the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop are finding that digital and mobile technologies can be powerful tools to promote learning3. When it comes using eBooks in school, however, the content of an eBook is only as powerful as the reader software that a student uses to view it. StarWalk Kids Media has designed the best in class, highly attractive StarWalk ReaderTM, with a rich array of features that address the needs of both students and educators. Because we have a one of the strongest K-8 nonfiction catalogues in the industry, we have paid particular attention to the tools required to support students in reading, understanding and analyzing informational texts. Most important, we have built the StarWalk ReaderTM to work on all the technology that is available, including iPad, Android tablets, desktop and laptop computers, smartphones and interactive whiteboards. _____________ 1-Bosman, Julie.In Study, Children Cite the Appeal of Digital Reading. 29 September 2010. 2-2010 Kids and Family Reading Report: Turning the Page in the Digital Age.Scholastic. 28 September 2010. 3-Shuler, Carley.

Can Metered Reading Be Part of the Future of Library E-Book Future? (Publishers Weekly)

So what does true experimentation look like? Here is an example: earlier this year, the Westchester Library System, a consortium of 38 public libraries in New Yorkstate, has become the first library system in the country to sign on with a company called Total Boox, an Israeli e-book service that launched earlier in 2013, with a “pay by the page” reading model the company touts as revolutionary. Terry Kirchner, the executive director of WLS, met Yoav Lorch, the president of Total Boox, at the 2012 International Digital Publishing Forum in New York City. “As luck would have it, we were sitting next to each other during one of the events and we just started to talk about the challenges faced by libraries in the e-book field,” Kirchner says.
