Absolutely Amazing App!

This app has helped to spark my son’s love of reading, and that spark has been eluding us for some time now! There are so many well written stories and age appropriate books up to age 14 that I saw. Even on the app you can search for books by their grade, make a collection for your child (under the parent avatar) and assign those books for them to read. They can favorite books, adding them to their library, etc. Many of the books will offer a quiz at the end, giving your child the opportunity to earn points and badges, and every kid loves being rewarded for their work! There are books they can read themselves, books that can be read to them, some that do both, and audio books for when they just want to listen or have a night time story! This app offers a nice bit of customization, you can have words highlighted and defined, search through books, collections others have already made, etc. It’s very user friendly and will suggest books based upon what your child has already read. I love that I can assign him a collection of books I’ve picked out and can separate them in collections however I like. There are also educational videos as well, we just love it. This app has become indispensable for us! ❤️❤️❤️

Thanks for the feedback! We are delighted to hear your son is enjoying Epic!. :)

I LOVE EPIC

Epic is really good for every body but I think it would be much better if you could put books for adults so they can enjoy reading too and just so you know I just gave this idea if you guys want this app to be much popular and more fun for everyone. Also some thing that will also help your app is that it does not have to be with money because why not we use it for free because maybe some people don’t have the money and because every body wants to talk about it they really want to try this app and they download it but then they see oh no 🤦‍♂️ 🤦‍♀️ this app needs money every month. Thanks for understanding. Just so you know this is just a feed back and please mail me I want to know if you guys liked my feed back. Bye!!!!!!👏👏👏 Thank you very much for this app. Also, thank you for your support. From: a fan of your app👍. P.S: just so you know all of this is just a feed back but the following is a review, I hope you like it ❤️❤️. I love this app and I think that it is such a clever and fun app to use every body at my school 🏫 always talks about Epic because it’s such a good app.

Not thrilled

I’m in the first few days of subscription, and wondering if I’m missing a better way to search? It’s horrible! Literally the poorest search function I’ve yet to experience. Can’t type more than one word without getting hundreds of irrelevant results. Clicking on Boxcar Children in “popular series” offers only three books, although 60+ are available in epic! The series I’ve looked at are completely unsorted, making it very difficult for children to use those independently if they have a continuous story from beginning to end. The thumbnail view, even on large screen tablet, can’t be zoomed, so subtitles and numbers within series are not readable.
I attempted to create collections and assign to my homeschooling student, following the directions on epic’s site, but “My Library” is missing entirely, so can’t get past first step. I’m using the app on iPad Pro.
One good thing is children can comfortably browse featured items, although I’d love to adjust what’s there since my child is mostly reading Halloween titles (in mid November). The library definitely has liberal leaning options (ex. several books about Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Big Bang ‘science’) but none to be found leaning conservatively after much searching.
I’m disappointed that so few Caldecott books are included. Also lacking unabridged classics. There is no shortage of Twaddle.
Not sure this is anything I expected or want to pay for.

April 2nd is Children’s Book Day! There are few other holidays so near and dear to my heart. I grew up a reading maniac! You can ask my mom. I read hundreds of children’s books. Then, as an adult, my first job was selling books in the Children’s section of Barnes & Noble. So, in honor of this holiday, I’ve put together my list of epic books for kids that they won’t be able to put down.

I focused on books that are still available, because apparently I’m old enough to have read books that aren’t being printed anymore. Yikes! And although this list could go on forever because I love kid’s books, I kept it quick. Anyways, enjoy the list!

Epic Books for Kids: Kindergarten

Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae

epic books for kids kindergarten

As a Children’s Bookseller back in the day, I facilitated many storytimes. This was always a fan favorite with the kids. It not only includes a bunch of fun animals doing silly dances, but it sneaks in the positive message that no one can tell you what you can’t do! So if you want to teach your kid confidence, self love and pride, this is the book!

Get Giraffe’s Can’t Dance on Amazon.

Mary Wore Her Red Dress by Merle Peek

epic books for kids kindergarten

This epic books for kids pick is based on an American Folk song. It’s a story about some animal friends that go to Mary’s party and each was wearing a different color for their clothing. It’s great for the young school kids because it reaffirms the color knowledge, offers a song to assist learning and is easy to help them start to read.

Pick up Mary Wore Her Red Dress here.

Epic Books for Kids: 1st Grade

First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg

epic books for kids first grade

Another storytime favorite, this book is perfect for back to school time. It’s the story of Sarah, who is so nervous to go to school. You work through the whole book the morning of the first day of school only to find out…..SPOILER……the story is about the teacher! (Not a student). The kids always think the surprise at the end is hilarious!! It is for sure, one of the most epic books for kids.

Get First Day Jitters on Amazon.

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by John Scieszka

epic books for kids

This was one of the first books that I truly loved and re-read a million times. It is the story of the Three Little Pigs, but told from the Wolf’s perspective. It’s clever, endearing and definitely creative. It gets kids to think about stories in a different way – from a unique perspective. John Scieszka ended up being one of my favs with other titles like Math Curse (don’t get me started on math books), The Stinky Cheese Man and The Frog Prince Continued.

Pick up The True Story of the Three Little Pigs.

Epic Books for Kids: 2nd Grade

George and Martha by James Marshall

george and martha

George and Martha is a series really. There are a few books in the George and Martha collection. It’s the silly tales of these two hippos. Like a true epic books for kids list maker, these stories teach kids values. The value of friendship, respect and courtesy. Every parent likes a book with secret lessons. And kids love animals. Win, win. James Marshall has his own epic collection of kids books with the Mrs. Nelson stories, The Stupids and even Goldilocks.

Grab George and Martha here.

Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester

Now, my mom will confirm that I was a little bit of a weird kid. Lol. But, for some reason, I so connected to the character Tacky the Penguin. This story is about a misfit penguin who “marches to the beat of his own drum”. The book follows Tacky as he tries to fit in with the more conformist penguins only to have him realize, he is totally fine just being himself!!

Along the same story line, the same author has a book called A Porcupine Named Fluffy. The porcupine’s ironic name makes him feel out of place, until he meets a rhino named hippo! It’s also one of my favorites.

Get Tacky the Penguin or A Porcupine Named Fluffy.

Epic Books for Kids: 3rd Grade

The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry

epic books for kids

I actually remember this book from third grade because my class performed a play of it. (I was the narrator). And, I was also seriously obsessed with the rainforest. And this book was a cautionary tale about rainforest conservation, specifically the Amazon. The illustrations are also amazing!

Pick up The Great Kapok Tree.

Chester’s Way by Kevin Henkes

epic books for kids

Ok, now’s the part where I ask you not to judge me. Yet another book I loved as a kid about a peculiar character. Chester’s Way follows Chester and Wilson, mice with a certain way of doing things, for example the way they cuts their sandwiches (diagonally). They always did things the same and together. Then they meet Lily, who did things differently! They don’t accept her at first, until she helps them out with a problem. The boys start to realize there’s more to friendship that having everything in common. (Oh the lessons).

Get Chester’s Way on Amazon.

Epic Books for Kids: 4th Grade

Bunnicula by James Howe

epic books for kids

Bunnicula has a ridiculous and hilarious premise. When I would sell this book to kids at the store, they always thought it was hilarious. Basically, the story follows a dog, Harold, and a cat, Chester, as they watch the bunny of the house. They believe that the bunny is a vampire that sucks the juice from vegetables. The cat is convinced they need to save the family from the bunny’s evil powers. It’s a seriously funny, humor driven novel on our list of epic kids books. There are more stories with the same characters such as Howliday Inn, Bunnicula Strikes Again, and The Celery Stalks at Midnight. All are amazing!

Pick up Bunnicula here.

The Twits by Roald Dahl

This is one of the first Roald Dahl books that I read. And after this book, I read them ALL. The Twits is about a couple who play pranks on each other. It’s definitely another humor book. It’s short and a quick read, but a good introduction to the style of Roald Dahl. Of course, you could always start with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but everyone knows that one already! This is truly one of the most epic books for kids.

Grab The Twits.


A Castle in the Attic by Elizabeth Winthrop

epic books for kids

A Castle in the Attic is part of the epic kids books list because of it’s themes, characters and quick moving action. This book is one of those that I couldn’t put down as a kid. I loved the story, the fantasy themes (knights, castles) and the element of magic (spells). It’s a great read aloud as well!

Get A Castle in the Attic.

Epic Books for Kids: 5th Grade

The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster

epic books for kids

Add one more book to the list of books that made my mom think I was a total weirdo. Lol. This book is a nerd’s dream. There’s fantasy, education, puzzles. It’s literally a book about how fun it is to learn. And I was (am) a nerd. It also touches on the idea that boredom happens and it’s part of life. I really do think this book is a cult classic. It’s even got an amazing annotated version.

Pick up The Phantom Tollbooth here.

Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett

This novel combines a few of my favorite things: art and mystery. I actually read this book as an adult, working in the bookstore. But, had it been around when I was a kid, I would’ve definitely added it to my reading list. A famous Vermeer painting is stolen from a museum and the thief leaves clues as to it’s recovery. We follow the children as they work on the mystery.

Grab Chasing Vermeer here.

Epic Books for Kids: 6th Grade

21 Balloons by William Pene du Bois

21 Balloons is a Newberry Award Winning story with fun themes. The plot follows a retired school teacher on his trip around the world. He ends up at a place that is filled with wealth and invention. The book features things that are both scientific and/or imagined. It’s a fun story with many inspirations for a creative kid.

Get 21 Balloons on Amazon.

The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin

epic books for kids

This book is on the epic books for kids list because it is a classic puzzle, mystery novel. It’s also a Newberry Award Winner and a great novel for introduction into the mystery genre. I went on to read all Agatha Christie’s books after this. The plot features the death of a mogul at the beginning and 16 tenants in the mogul’s building are named in his will, but they must solve some puzzles before anyone gets anything.

Pick up The Westing Game here.

A few books I still absolutely love but didn’t feature are:

Five Ways to Use Epic! in the Classroom (That You May Not Have Thought Of!)

If you’ve heard me talk about literacy centers before, then you probably know that I think the website Epic! is amazing for the listening center!

Epic! is free for teachers, and it gives you and your students free access to fantastic books that they can listen to and read.

Epic! is a digital library of children’s books, and I love the way that the site presents book choices to students. Kids can choose their interests, browse by category, and see eye-catching book covers. Epic! makes listening to and reading books incredibly appealing.

Even though I usually recommend Epic! for use in the listening center, there are SO many other great ways to use it. In this post, I’m sharing five OTHER ways that you can use Epic! in the classroom!

Epic! is great for a listening center in Kindergarten, first grade, or second grade. But this educational technology also has SO many other uses! Read this post for 5 great ways to use Epic! in the classroom.

Note: This post was written in collaboration with Epic!

#1: Research Projects

Every year, my students LOVE the opportunity to do mini-research projects. They read about a nonfiction topic and then write about what they’ve learned.

However, a big problem has been a lack of nonfiction books at lower reading levels. Maybe I can find one book at the library that’s at a reading level appropriate for some of my students, but a true research project requires more than just one book!

Epic! makes doing research easy, even for students who are beginning readers. They can listen to books on Epic! to help supplement any print books you can find for them.

My students always feel so proud to share what they’ve learned—and Epic! is a great help for giving them access to information.

#2: Fluency Practice

Epic! is also a great tool for developing students’ fluency. When they listen to a book read aloud on Epic!, they’re hearing strong fluency modeled.

Then, students can read the SAME book a couple of times (clicking through the pages without turning the audio on). Rereading the same text repeatedly builds fluency.

Students can then read the books to a partner or to their parents at home (if they have access to technology).

#3: Teaching Visualization and Listening Comprehension

Epic! now has a section for “audio books.” These audio books include a text read aloud, but you can’t see any pictures or inside pages of the book.

While you can always find a print version of the book and show students the pictures as you read, an audio book by itself is a GREAT tool for working on visualization.

You can give students a little background on a story, start the audio book, and then pause it periodically. Students can discuss and/or draw what they’re visualizing (you will want to model this first).

Although I love picture books for readalouds, these audio books are super useful for practicing visualization and working on listening comprehension.

#4: Engaging Your Reluctant Readers with Comics

Some reluctant readers are hesitant to read “regular” books but love reading comics! Epic! has quite a few comic books available.

I also teach my students to make comics as part of the writing center or our writing units. Speech bubbles, thought bubbles, and other components of comic writing can be easily transferred to “regular” writing. Kids love making these comics, but they also need to see some examples first. Epic! has a number of examples that you can use as mentor texts!

#5: Narrow Reading

Vocabulary knowledge and background knowledge play a huge role in a reader’s ability to comprehend a text. The more we can develop both of these areas, the better our students become at reading comprehension.

Narrow reading is a great way to develop students’ vocabulary and background knowledge. Narrow reading is reading about the same topic across multiple (usually nonfiction) texts.

Narrow reading gives students multiple exposures to some of the same vocabulary words, which makes it more likely that students will actually learn the words.

Narrow reading also exposes students to similar content, which builds deep background knowledge of the topic.

But it can be difficult to get access to multiple books on the same topic—especially if you’re looking for books at certain reading levels or appropriate for a certain grade level.

I’m always requesting books at the library, searching through my own stacks…that takes a lot of time, and sometimes I just can’t find the books I need.

I’m thankful that Epic! gives me access to many more books, and all I have to do is log in! Epic! is a great tool for having your students engage in narrow reading, because there are usually a couple of books available on a topic, and you can supplement with print books of your own.

Conclusions

Do you use Epic? If you have other suggestions for how to use this awesome site, I’d love to hear them in the comments.

BEST READING APPS FOR KIDS! - Vooks VS Epic Reading App Review

Best Books on Epic! Reading App

Is your library closed? Book budget running low? Kids acting bored when what they really need is a new book to let their imaginations fly?

Ebooks may be you answer. When you need to stretch your book budget as much as possible, a reading app is a lifesaver, especially if you have a voracious reader.

Epic! is a reading app I have written about before. It's a reading app dedicated to a providing a quality library of children's books for ages 0-12. Epic! offers over 40,000 ebooks, audiobooks, read-to-me books and some educational videos. It is free for teachers and librarians and parents can test drive it free for 30 days.

I've received several requests to recommend my favorite books on the Epic! app, so I did! This book list is HUGE, and it will save you tons of time searching through all the titles on the reading app.

Keep these guidelines in mind:

  • Honestly, I adore all of the books on this list, but I've included an asterisk next to titles I especially love.
  • Books are listed in no particular order.
  • I've left off author names in an effort to get this list to you in a timely fashion.
  • This is not an exhaustive list. If you don't see the title here, it doesn't mean the book is not worth reading! Keep in mind they have 40,000 titles!
  • Some of these titles may only be "read-to-me" titles or audiobooks.
  • If a book shows up on "popular" lists, I probably haven't listed it here because it is already easy to find!
  • A sure fire way to find more books is to search for the author of the book you just read.

Happy reading!

Epic! has an enormous amount of nonfiction books. The jewel in the crown is their collection of National Geographic books. I haven't listed many here because I simply haven't read many of the others, but of course your child can search by subject.

  • National Geographic books
  • Winged Wonders
  • Separate is Never Equal*
  • Explore Spring!
  • The Moon Book by Gail Gibbons
  • Earthrise*
  • Rocket to the Moon*
  • Sea Otter Heroes*
  • Flying Deep

Biographies

I was quite impressed with the range of picture book biographies in the Epic! library. Here are a few I recommend that are well-written and have great illustrations, and you will find many others.

  • Rebel Girls (series)
  • The Right Word: Roget and His Thesauraus*
  • Before She Was Harriet*
  • Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos
  • Trombone Shorty*
  • Counting on Katherine*
  • The Book Itch
  • Basketball Belles
  • The Boo-Boos That Changed the World
  • Diego Rivera: His World and Ours
  • Hiawatha the Peacemaker
  • Richard Wright and the Library Card
  • Esquivel: Space Age Sound Artist
  • Ruth Bader Ginsberg: The Case of RBG vs. Inequality*
  • The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch
  • Whoosh!: Lonnie Johnson's Super-Soaking Stream of Inventions*
  • What to Do about Alice?

To repeat myself, this is by no means a comprehensive list of all the reading choices on the Epic! app. You and your children will find many others. The search function doesn't always bring up every book you may enjoy, but the suggested titles at the end of each book will also aid you in your search.

And remember, you can always try out Epic! free for 30 days!

Happy reading!

Everything to know about Epic! books

Wondering about Epic! books? Here’s everything you need to know about this book subscription for kids and families. Plus, you can try it for free for a month here!

When all the libraries shut down in March, I was instantly on the hunt for sources for books that didn’t include buying them all myself.

Top of my list was Epic! books which we’ve had a subscription to on and off for years!

If you’re unfamiliar with Epic!, it’s the largest digital library for children 12 and under with more than 40,000 titles.

It’s an amazing tool for

Everything to know about Epic! books

If you’re looking for a one-stop shop for digital books and audiobooks, Epic! is hands-down your best choice.

A digital library subscription is only as good as the content there and the content on Epic! is incredible.

There are classic picture books and popular series and non-fiction titles and reference books  and activity and craft books. Basically, there is something for everyone.

epic books

They also have different formats – there are books to read, audiobooks to listen to, video content, and even read-along books, where you can see the pages of the books and the app will read it out loud to you while you look at the pictures.

These read along books are one of the things I get asked about all the time, and nobody has a better read along collection than Epic!

Finding Books on Epic!

I love how EASY to navigate Epic! is – they’ve really created an amazing user experience and you can search for books all sorts of different ways.

You can search by format like poetry, activity books, comic books or picture books. They also have tons of fiction AND non-fiction, so if you have a child who leans toward one of those more than the other, you’ll be covered.

You can also find books categorized by series, popularity, topics like animals or space or friendship, and dozens of other categories.

The books are also leveled according to several of the most popular leveling systems, including AR, DRA, F&P, GRL, Lexile, and, of course, grade levels. So if your school uses a particular system, it’s very easy to sort for other books at their level.

You can favorite any books and you can also hide any title so that it’s never recommended to you again.

Tracking reading in Epic!

There is a pretty robust tracking system in Epic! that records all the books your child has read in the Epic! library, plus will track the number of hours and number of books read.

You can also unlock achievements for different reading activities which is really fun for my girls.

Even better, you can make multiple profiles within one account so you can easily have children of different ages use it.

Using Epic! Books

You can use Epic! on a computer, a phone, or a tablet and they have dedicated (free) apps for both IOS and Android devices.

One of the most common questions I get about Epic! is whether you can use it on an Amazon Fire Kids Tablet and sadly, the answer is no. They discontinued support for it a while ago, so you’ll need a different device for it.

You can try it out for free for a month (here’s the link for that free trial) and after that it’s $7.99 per month.

 

Any other questions about Epic books that I didn’t answer? I’m happy to try to answer and help you get the most out of Epic! It’s such an amazing tool for families!
