What People are Saying
"The State Library of Kansas is please to partner with Findaway World to distribute another great product. Bookpacks, which pair audiobooks with print, are a perfect complement to our governor's literacy initiative that focuses on students achieving grade level reading by 4th Grade. I believe Bookpacks support reluctant and struggling readers, home schoolers, English Language Learners and adult literacy programs with the goal of promoting literacy and life-long learners."
Jo Budler, State Librarian of Kansas and Library Journal Librarian of the Year 2013
