Each of the four new Hoopla BingePasses includes over 100 unique titles, including TV Shows, Picture Books, Watch & Learn Videos, Dynamic Read Along, and more. This is an extension of the hoopla BingePass offering, where each pass provides seven days of unlimited streaming access with just one hoopla Instant Borrow.
“When we launched BingePass, we made a commitment to continue to add more BingePasses for libraries and their users, particularly for categories where lending activity is high and titles are in demand,” said the founder of hoopla digital. Jeff Jankowski. “We’re excited to continue delivering on our promise with the addition of these four new BingePasses designed to keep families entertained and kids excited about fun and learning.”
The four new BingePasses included The Highlights Collection, KidzVidz, Children’s Books in Action by Dreamscape Media and Read along 2 Learn by Triangle Media, featuring titles from Cherry Lake Publishing and Crabtree Publishing.
- The highlights collection: This collection includes video series to watch and learn, eBook series to read quests, and audio books to listen and learn that engage children with their positive messages, puzzles, and things to do.
- KidzVidz: This collection of movies and TV series covers animals, inspiring children in history and the planets, and a series on drawing animals to unleash creativity.
- Children’s books in action: When their favorite picture books come to life, kids will get excited about reading as they watch the events of their favorite stories unfold into classic bedtime stories, nursery rhymes, and other favorites.
- Read along 2 learn: Perfect for inquisitive kids, this collection showcases read-along eBooks that allow young readers to explore on their own or with speaker assistance and word highlighting. With themes like sports, animals, emotions, STEM and more, kids can immerse themselves in the world around them at their own pace.
These new Hoopla BingePasses for kids follow the Hellosaursus BingePass, which gives kids ages 2-8 direct access to the interactive kids video app. Looking ahead, several more children’s collections are coming soon, including The Reading Corner BingePass.
