We know how hard it can be to get your kids to sit down and read a book—on their own. Good thing you love reading with your kids! But what happens when you’re reading on an iPad?

Enter Trajectory Inc. Trajectory is a tech-oriented publishing company that collaborates with writers, artists, and digital comics to bring you vividly illustrated classics for children. The result is a collection of comic-like children’s books that translate beautifully onto screens and are fun for kids and parents alike—and we just added a bunch of their titles to our library!

Want a good story that you and your kids don’t already know by heart? Try starting The Queen Bee. This tale is one of the lesser-known by the Brothers Grimm in the Trajectory collection, but is still just as wonderful to read.

If it’s animals your kids crave, The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Andersen or The 3 Little Pigs by Joseph Jacobs might do the trick. You may know these stories well,  but the vibrant, detailed illustrations will add a whole new dimension.
