FAQ

We will be adding new questions on a regular basis. If you have a question that’s not answered here, please email us at ebooks@booksdelsur.org and we will do our best to get back to you within 24 hrs and also maybe add your question to this section.

  1. How many titles are in each collection?
    Each kindergarten and 1st grade set has 35 titles; 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade and the Middle School collections each have 30 different titles. The High School collection has 20 titles. The FREE TRIAL collections have only a sample of 2 titles per collection.

  2. Can I try the e-books for free before purchasing them?
    Absolutely! To get 14-day trial access (with two titles per grade level collection), click here.

  3. Is there a tutorial? 
    We made a short video (Spanish version here) to show you how to log in and access the books in your collection. Once you’ve purchased one of the e-book collections you’ll also have access to a user manual.

  4. How do I get a user name and password? 
    In order to get access credentials to the books you first need to contact one of our specialists so that they can set you up with an account.

  5. What is the cost? 
    We will have a couple of different products. The main product will be our read aloud collections, which are available for grades K-8 and high school. The cost of each collection will depend on the grade level. We’ll soon launch expansion packs to enlarge the read aloud collections. 

  6. If I travel, can I access the books while I’m abroad?  
    Our collection is designed to help balanced literacy programs in the US; since it is a web-based platform, if you purchase a collection you will get a username and password to log in and you will be free to use it wherever you are. You will need an internet connection while using the platform.

  7. Number of users 
    Our launching products are Read Aloud Collections so they are meant to be used as such. The owner or administrator of the collection will be able to view the books on up to three different devices (phone, tablet and/or laptop/desktop computer). If for example you wanted to use the books as guided reading books, or wanted to have more than one person open the same book at the same time, you would need to purchase additional copies.

  8. What supporting resources do you have available? 
    Our goal is to have book guides available for every single title to make it easier for you to plan your lessons. We do not have the guides ready for all the books just yet. We are building and adding guides on a regular basis. They will be uploaded to the same folder where your books are located. Also we will be creating lesson plans for some of the books. We will start adding these materials to the different collections at the beginning of Sept. 2020.

  9. What kind of technical support will you offer?
    We’ll respond to inquiries and questions within 24 hours (Monday-Friday). Please contact us at sales@booksdelsur.org if you need help or have questions about using the e-books.

  10. Can I purchase just one book?
    At this time our focus is on providing authentic Spanish literature for schools. With that in mind ebooks for now are only being sold in collections.

  11. Do you recommend any specific browser?
    For a better experience we do recommend Google Chrome.
