Bridging the Digital Divide with Launchpads and Wonderbooks

Posted On Monday January 20, 2020

If you’re looking for something fun and innovative for your child that will keep them learning, creating and reading for hours, you’ve come to the right place! HHPL has a great new creative learning experience for your child that promotes literacy, bridges the digital divide (those who have ready access to computers and the Internet, and those who do not), and is accessible to everyone.

Welcome to Launchpad and Wonderbooks by Playaway®. Two very innovative products geared to increasing literacy, encouraging life-long learning and a love of reading.

Launchpads are tablets pre-loaded with high-quality, ad-free learning apps for children to read, learn and interact with anytime and anywhere. They are easy-to-use, and are 100% secure. There is no download time and no need for WiFi. Access to powerful content is as simple as turning on the device. They are durable (protective bumper surround), powerful (Quad core Android Operating System) and FREE to check out from HHPL.  Launchpads can be borrowed for up to 7 days and are perfect for children preschool aged, up to grade 2.

Wonderbooks are printed books with a ready-to-play audiobook inside. Children can listen to a story and follow along as they turn the pages. Parents can assist younger children with the read-along and older children can follow along on their own. Each book contains one-touch functionality, easy-to-use play controls, high-quality audio performance and a micro-USB charge port for quick and easy charging. Wonderbooks increase literacy and fluency by adding an element of fun and interaction, and can be borrowed for up to 21 days.

HHPL currently has over 40 Wonderbook titles and 26 Launchpads that are geared to various ages and levels of learning and creativity. Try them out today!
