Does Epic have Audiobooks and Read-to-Me books?

There are two different types of audio-enabled books available on Epic, pure Audiobooks and Read-to-Me books.

Audiobooks (Purple-tagged): Audiobooks are indicated by a purple tag on the bottom right-hand side of the book that says "Audiobook".  These are strictly audio without a visual book and pages to follow along with, perfect for bedtime stories, language learning, and much more!   Many of these audiobooks also feature music and songs!

Purple-tagged Audiobooks are not available for offline reading and do not count towards the total number of books finished for badges and achievements. However, because we want to celebrate all accomplishments, Audiobooks count towards the number of hours read on Epic

Read-to-Me books (Green-tagged): Read-to-Me books (Green-tagged): "Read To Me" books will have a green audio icon in the bottom-right corner.  They have a visual book for kids to read along with and enjoy the pictures while they listen to the narration.  The pages turn automatically as the audio plays.

Green-tagged Read-to-Me books can be downloaded to read offline but do count towards the total number of books finished for badges and achievements!

Read-to-Me books offer a follow-along word highlighting feature to help kids improve their reading skills on Epic. The Word Highlighting feature is located on the first page of any Read-to-Me book.
