World Book Day is here and it reminds us to celebrate the wonderful world of books. Across the globe, people will be dressing up and celebrating the fantastic characters brought to life by authors and illustrators. Most importantly of all World Book Day provides us with the perfect opportunity to celebrate reading and the excitement of escaping into a fictional world of wonder and creativity.

Within Grid 3, you will find a wide range of resources to enable everyone to experience the joy of a good story. Whether reading themselves using our Kindle grid set, listening to a good yarn with our Audible grid set or snuggling down with a bed time story thanks to our World Book Day grid set.

Designed with our little readers in mind, this grid set calls up 6 different YouTube videos of famous faces reading bedtime stories. Some stories and characters will be familiar, like Mog the cat up to her old tricks in ‘Mog in the dark’ and poor mummy elephant trying to find her ‘Five minutes peace’. Superworm and Emily Brown are newer faces with lots to say!

Kindle Grid Set

For more independent readers, we’ve created a Kindle controller grid set. This allows access and control of the Kindle books you have in your library. To use this grid set, you will need to have an Amazon account and Kindle for desktop installed. You can download this here. Once this is on your device, the grid set does the rest for you, automatically finding and starting Kindle for desktop when the cell is selected. Kindle is not just for adults; there are a huge number of children’s and young adult’s books available through the Amazon store as well as all the newest best sellers.

Audible Grid Set

Most commonly found on Smartphones, the Audible store allows you to download audio books to your library. The grid set is designed to work alongside the desktop version for PC of the Audible controller which can be downloaded here. To work along side this you will also need to download the Audible download manager. You can do that, here. As with the Kindle grid set, once you have the desktop version on your device the grid set does the rest for you, enabling you to select, play and pause books in your library.
