Flying StartBooks will use K8e to distribute its Red Rocket Readers series of early reading interactive and read-aloud e-books directly from the company’s website to their clients. The e-books will feature narration with word-for-word highlighting and a hyperlinked table of contents to facilitate navigation. Readers will be able to click on a word for pronunciation, take notes as they read and leave bookmarks.
