If you are looking for new ways to get your kids excited about reading and want unlimited access to over 35,000 kids books – we want to tell you about Epic! – a children’s e-book library! Perfect for summer reading, Epic is an all-you-can-read eBook library your kids can take anywhere on a phone, tablet, or computer. Whether your kids are learning to read, or reading to learn, Epic has books for every level of their reading journey.

Epic is offering an AMAZING deal right now – 3 MONTHS FOR $3 when you use code SUMMER19. This will give your kids access for the entire summer. One account is good for 4 kids!

Some of the links in this post are affiliate links, which means we will receive a small commission when you make a purchase by clicking through our links. Thank you for supporting Lakeland Mom! We only recommend products that we use and love ourselves.

A subscription to Epic is perfect for summer travel– while it works on WiFi at home, you can also download new books for a long road trip or a flight to keep the kids entertained.

We also use Epic year round – pull it up on your phone while you wait at the doctors office, listen to a story together on the way to school.

Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE paperback and hardback books. There is no substitute for flipping through the pages of a real book together and looking at the pictures inside. However, Epic allows your kids to read anytime, anywhere!

My favorite things about Epic:


    • The Epic App is available on iOS (iPod, iPad, iPhone), Android, and Kindle, and you can also access books on a laptop
    • No ads or in-app purchases
    • You can download books for the car or anywhere you won’t have WiFi
    • Select your child’s interests and age and it will suggest books
    • Save favorite books to read again later
    • Up to FOUR profiles per account – meaning 4 kids have access at the same time
    • Accounts stay updated among various devices.

    • Weekly progress email sent to parents to see what kids are reading
    • AR Level is shown if one has been assigned to the book
    • Kids earn badges for completing books

    • Fiction, non-fiction, classics, book series, favorite characters, how-to, holidays, historical, jokes, science & nature, and so much more.
    • Spanish and bilingual books
    • Vivid pictures – just like in a printed book
    • Hundreds of read-aloud / follow-along books for kids who aren’t reading on their own just yet
    • Engaging Videos
    • Quizzes to test kids knowledge
    • Epic’s library includes well-known books and series including:
      • National Geographic Kids
      • Berenstein Bears
      • Fancy Nancy
      • Eric Carle
      • Ramona

      • and MUCH MORE

After you fall in love with Epic! during your 3-month trial, you’ll continue to have access their HUGE LIBRARY for only $7.99/month. This covers ALL of your kids, and you can create up to 4 profiles for them to have separate access to age-appropriate suggestions.  I am not usually a fan of apps that require a monthly subscription, however, for us the selection and quality of titles is worth the money, especially with two kids using the App on a regular basis.

If you don’t love it after your 3 month $3 trial, you can easily cancel at any time.

Click here to sign up on their website, then look for the download links at the bottom of their website to get the app for Apple, Android, or Kindle. This special offer expires on 6/11 – don’t miss your chance to use code SUMMER19 for your first 3 months for only $3!
