“World Book Online and eBooks have been embedded into our school for many years. Early World of Learning is used extensively throughout our Junior School. Our Middle School enjoys the fabulous layout of World Book Kids and World Book Student is used in our Senior School. The eBooks are used for reading programmes. The increase in Australian content is very useful. I would certainly recommend World Bok as a teaching and learning tool in any school.”
