After using this product for several years, my students and teachers really enjoy it, and I am always able to find a title to supplement most every lesson I teach.

I love lightbox so much that I purchase it for my school with my scholastic dollars (and that is a HUGE part of my book budget).

Excellent product, great customer service, highly engaging for teachers and students!
Spradley Elementary, TX- 8/10
That students can use the same copy of a book. I love some of the additional features like audio and video.
Marinette School Libraries, WI – 10/10
Broad coverage of a topic with various resources incorporated into one.
Wendell Magnet Elementary School, NC – 7/10
Multiple students had difficulty loading the website when using Lightbox. Many did not get the opportunity to explore the books because the website never loaded.
Fire Prairie Upper Elementary, MO – 8/10
The books are a great resource for the price and have many valuable features, like direct sharing into LMS systems like Google Classrooms, and citation capabilities.
Gaithersburg Elementary, MD – 8/10
The only problems I have had with lightbox is that it doesn't always fully load the site. I know it's image heavy, so that may make it slow.
Green Acres Elementary, UT– 9/10
I like the interactive and appealing features for educational ebooks.
Lomond View Elementary, UT – 8/10
I love the simplicity of using Lightbox. My only concern are the videos. Some of them are painfully outdated and students lose interest. I love everything else about Lightbox. I'd love to see even more fiction books included.

“Amazing pictures, lots of science facts and information, and using Lightbox to view the book digitally made it a lot more fun for Little Miss. She said that she wished all her science material was presented this way. It took her a couple of days to get through the book because she would work on it for about 20 minutes at a time. She learned a lot about glaciers this way and I think everyone in the family sat down to watch the book with her at some point because of the amazing pictures. I appreciated that it captured her attention and made her want to work on it more.”
“My Lightbox books and eBooks have arrived and I love them!”
“Each page had its own surprises. Since Caty struggles at times with words being overwhelming on the page, I loved that each page would/could be read to her. She could just follow along to the highlighted words. Some of the pages also offer video links. The extremely user-friendly interface just required we click on the icon and... a video popped up on our screen. This is great since I didn’t have to worry about her being taken out onto webpages that had not been pre-screened by myself. …This was a great non-fiction story for just a fun science day. I liked the information that was presented, and that it was done in such a way as to use lots of visual photographs and videos.”

“I love this product! It allows students to read, be read to, see visual content, learn vocabulary, and view video and live video links to the real world.”

“The photographs, videos, and information given were wonderful. This would be a great core piece for a unit study. Kaden has gone back through at least 4 times, just to make sure he didn’t miss any tidbit!”
“Each page contains icons you can click on and be taken to additional content. Some fun activities included discovering the world of polar bears, …multiple interactive worksheets to complete, watching slideshows and videos, and even completing a glacier quiz.… The book included hands-on activities to try as well. This is a wonderful addition to your science study!”
