How can I hear an article's text read aloud on an iPad?
The iPad has native read-aloud functionality so those who would like to use it can turn it on under Settings > General > Accessibility > Voiceover.
I chose "Translate this text" from the Tools menu of an article, but don't see the translation. How can I view it?
The translation might not appear for users with popup blockers enabled on their browser. They would need to either disable popup blockers or allow popups from worldbookonline.com to ensure this does not happen. On an iPad, go to Settings > Safari and ensure that the Block Pop-ups option is turned off.
Do you have puzzles on the site?
The puzzles on World Book Kids were developed using a plug-in that is not supported by Internet Explorer and Firefox. Therefore, the puzzle games do not appear for customers using a browser that does not support them.
Can I place a link to World Book Kids on my school's/library's home page?
If you would like to place a link to World Book Kids on your school's/library's home page, visit your World Book Account Tools page for icons and instructions.

If you would like to place this link on your external home page, please contact your sales representative to find out how to obtain permission to do this.
