Learn With AW Books

Learn With AW Books

Fun activities and books to enjoy while learning outside of school!


Right now, the way children read and learn might look a bit different. And teachers, librarians, and parents are swiftly doing what they can to allow kids across the world to continue learning no matter where their classroom may be.

At Albert Whitman, we want to help the way we know best: sharing books that matter with the world, because right now the world needs unity (and a good book) more than ever. In the coming weeks, we will spotlight on our social media channels Albert Whitman titles alongside activity kits and exercises to help keep kids reading and learning through these uncertain times.

We want to inspire and educate our children, and will tag any of these related posts with the hashtag #learnwithawbooks.
