Children's Literature: Digital Books

Children's literature resources for KU education majors

Digital books

Digital Children's books:
We have access to digital collections of children's literature through EBSCO and through a shared MackinVIA purchase. Both collections will show up in our online catalog results, and to get to the books, you click on the link in the catalog record.

To Browse/Use MackinVIA:
KU patrons also can browse the books we get through MackinVIA by going to: and authenticating with your KU login.

  • Some books are ebooks (you can see each page and read it digitally) and others are audiobooks (only the cover is shown while you listen to the book).
  • Use the links on the left to see books by category or a list of all resources.
  • Search for a topic or book by using the search box at the top right.
  • If a book is marked as "out", another patron is using it. You may request the book by clicking on "request" to the right of the book.
