Open the door to literature and bring the magic of storytime to every child

About Polylino

Polylino is a digital picture book service that supports early childhood education and literacy in classrooms and childcare centers. Choose from a large virtual library of books that can be read aloud in English and a growing collection of books read aloud in dozens of different languages.

We have partnered with international publishers to provide high quality picture books, fact books, non-fiction, and storybooks for your smart device. In our virtual library, explore all the books in English, and listen to many in more in 50 different languages. For each book, a child can browse the pages, listen to or mute the soundtrack and read for themselves. Bookmark your favorite parts, zoom in on the artwork, and read together or independently.

Polylino is available from childcare centers to kindergartens to use in their classrooms for children aged 0-7. It is not yet available for parents to purchase and to use at home.

We are continuing to expand our services, so if you’re interested in using the solution for an older age group of children or for personal use, please sign up for our newsletters for our latest updates.

As an expert on Children’s Literature in North America, I have been able to personally recommend and curate the books within Polylino with my fellow colleagues. Knowing that ILT Education ensures books are chosen with a thorough process, makes me confident that the service will be beneficial for preschoolers, their teachers, and their parents.
