What Would Make Me Want to Use Ebooks Rather Than Print?

What Features Will I Find in WP Ebooks?
Gorgeous Color is now an option with resources created for devices, rather than print. This allows for all new types of teaching materials we’ve never before been able to offer you! They’re all very exciting, and great to look at!
Quick Delivery! Your ebook set is delivered in 24-48 hours or less! Even if you purchase other print items, your ebook set will be delivered quickly, ahead of the other items.
Portability is a key feature. Ebooks allow you to school anywhere, and makes cuddling on the couch easier than ever! Easy-to-Print Files make it so easy to print out consumable resources, guide grids, or anything else you’d like printed. The files are in a PDF-style format, and accessed through an Adobe Reader program or app. This allows you to print most of your resources, and printing instructions are right on the bottom of the covers! OR–Take your files to a Staples and take advantage of special pricing we’ve negotiated for you!
Exclusive Resources are now available that would never be produced because of page count, color pictures, or increased cost to you! These give you even more “bells and whistles”!
Which Programs Are Available in Ebook?
We’re excited to tell you that most of our Themed Programs have an ebook collection of WinterPromise exclusives and other resources. The only Themed Programs that are available in print only are “Journeys of Imagination,” and “American Story 1” and “American Story 2.” In addition, we’re offering LA 3 to 6 in ebook format. Each ebook LA comes with a choice of an eReading Schedule. This should give parents more flexibility than ever! Most timeline and mapping resources, math, science programs, chess, as well as language arts for young learners and grades 7 and up are not available in an ebook format at this time, but a few are. Look in each section to find available ebooks. We will continue to add more ebook collections in the future.
Printing Your Ebooks
Printing Your Ebooks
A Great Printing Option! Some families may prefer to get some or all of their ebooks printed elsewhere. A few of the resources you receive may be easier to have printed away from home because they would be better double-sided or bound. We’ve made this SO easy to do! WinterPromise has negotiated special low prices for our families at any Staples store. Simply take your ebooks to Staples on a stick or other storage device, and they’ll print them. When it is time to pay for your resources, use the special Rewards Number for WinterPromise families –Rewards #3046196782. NOTE! We recommend printing looseleaf when you can, as binding is one of the most expensive parts of the printing process. Even so, the rewards number will only add about $2.00 a piece for binding, rather than the $4-5 or more you might pay elsewhere. For those who purchased a Theme Program, included in your initial “Welcome Packet” is a sheet that includes order details for each resource, the Rewards Number, printing instructions, and permission for Staples to print. You’ll simply fill in this sheet, take it and your files on a thumb drive to Staples, and give them both. EASY!
How Do I Know an Ebook Version is Available?
If an item is available in ebook, two prices are shown, one for print, and one for ebook. Item numbers of ebooks have an “e” added to the end of each item number listed in the catalog, as you’ll see on our online, extended catalog, and in our store.
How Do I Make the Most of My Ebooks?
Ebooks look wonderful on tablets and laptops. Many are in beautiful full color. Many are formatted to fit these screen sizes perfectly. To make the most out of your ebooks, you’ll want to make sure Adobe PDF Reader is set to the “flip screen” setting right within Adobe PDF Reader. This makes it so easy to flip from page to page. You’ll find ebooks are great for cuddling with little ones or sharing with teens.
Are My Ebooks Returnable?
Unfortunately, you cannot return your ebooks.
How Do I Print My Ebooks at Home?
Each ebook resource includes printing instructions right on the front cover to make it simple to print those you’d like. Of course, you won’t need to print every resource, since some are better used as viewable documents. Most resources have been formatted so they can be used in looseleaf format, or bound or hole-punched after printing.

For Charter Schools and Homeschool Co-Ops we offer ebook licensing options. What this means is that for our digital materials we will offer you a one year license to print the materials for each of your students. We will charge a per-license fee for each student when you place the order.
Our policy is to not give licenses out to institutions that are overseas (outside of the domestic United States) because of the inherent difficult and expense of enforcing our copyrights internationally.
