CC Tracker

We've joined the Creative Commons bandwagon and the journey has been fantastic. Magic has happened – we've had books translated into languages we didn't know, our audio books have been used as teaching tools by volunteers teaching underpriviledged children in their neighbourhood, our book are being converted into Braille and much more. Every time we find our books in a new avataar we imagine the different ways in which you've helped us reach closer to our mission of 'a book in every child's hand'.

This page will serve as a resource with links to all our original Creative Commons licensed content which you can reuse and remix. You can also find links to all the wonderful derivatives that other people have created with our content.
