Publishers Weekly announced few days ago that Lerner Digital, Lerner Publishing Group’s two-year-old digital publishing division, has launched the Kar-Ben eBookstore, which is selling e-books for children with Jewish themes.

We are thrilled to make our complete eBook collection easily accessible to our customers via the new Kar-Ben eBookstore, which allows simple online purchasing and reading of fiction and nonfiction titles that highlight Jewish holidays, Bible tales, folktales, and life-cycle stories,” said Joni Sussman, publisher, Kar-Ben Publishing. “Our new eBookstore allows parents and children to experience our books in exciting new ways.

Kar-Ben’s eBookstore is a user-friendly site for previewing and purchasing eBooks. No log-in is needed to browse the eBook collection, which includes a growing collection of Kar-Ben titles. Parents who purchase eBooks may log-in with their eBookstore accounts and read purchased eBooks within the digital bookshelf, which may be searched or filtered by category, age, and other attributes.

The Kar-Ben eBookstore and eBooks are available for browsing, purchasing, and reading via any Web browser and a new Kar-Ben eReader App — a dedicated eReader for the iPad to support mobile reading. The Kar-Ben eBookstore and eReader App were developed in partnership with Impelsys, a global leader in providing electronic content delivery solutions.

For the first time Jewish parents and their children have direct access to Kar-Ben’s extensive eBook library,” said Terri Soutor, vice president of marketing and digital products, Lerner Publishing Group. “The new Kar-Ben eBookstore makes it possible to access Jewish-interest eBooks anywhere, any time and makes our books more mobile and accessible than ever before.

Kar-Ben’s Digital eReader app allows parents, educators and other readers to easily select, download, and read eBooks from Kar-Ben Publishing’s collection, the largest exclusively Jewish-themed children’s eBook collection on the web. Kar-Ben Publishing, a division of Lerner Publishing Group, creates award-winning children’s titles on a wide variety of Jewish subjects, including holiday books, folktales, contemporary stories and picture books, reflecting the rich diversity of today’s Jewish community.

In addition to offering Kar-Ben titles for sale via the eBookstore, Lerner Digital will open the eBookstore to other publishers of Jewish children’s books who may wish to take advantage of Kar-Ben’s large presence and strong brand in the Jewish children’s book market.
