Follett has announced a partnership with Simon & Schuster that makes more than 450 PreK-12 titles available in ebook format on Titlewave, Follett’s collection development, search and ordering tool. Follett now offers more than 250,000 ebook titles through Titlewave to schools nationwide.

Simon & Schuster titles will span the full range of popular school titles from pre-school picture books to chapter books for early readers to higher-level fiction and nonfiction for young adults. Specific titles available include “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type” by Coreen Cronin, “Hatchet” by Gary Paulsen, “Out Of My Mind” by Sharon Draper, “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury, “Angela’s Ashes” by Frank McCourt and “For Whom The Bell Tolls” by Ernest Hemingway.

Simon & Schuster, a part of CBS Corporation, is a global leader in the field of general interest publishing, dedicated to providing the best in fiction and nonfiction for consumers of all ages, across all printed, electronic, and audio formats. Earlier this year, Follett announced ebook partnerships with Random House and Hachette Book Group.

With books increasingly moving to digital formats, Follett is aiding in the transition with tools and solutions that help customers access and integrate the new forms of content within schools. FollettShelf is the digital bookshelf most used by schools to access ebooks. In addition, Follett Enlight provides students with a consistent and easy-to-use ebook reading environment on their desktops, tablets and smartphones, and allows users to add notes and highlights to an ebook and then view them anywhere they have access to their FollettShelf account. Today, more than 29 million students and educators in 42,000 schools worldwide use ebooks provided by Follett.
