Andrews McMeel Publishing is proud to share the new and improved AMPkids.com, its destination for cultivating literacy for all ages.
We believe there is no wrong road to reading. For us, it all starts with comics, whose fun and accessible storytelling can build a solid foundation for kids to gain confidence and become full-blown bookworms. Reaching readers through their interests is at the heart of AMP Kids, and with this new site, we’re excited to speak directly to the “gatekeepers” — the librarians, educators and parents of the world — and best equip them to raise the next generation of readers.
As we continued to innovate and expand to new genres and formats — including board books, illustrated novels, picture books and more — we needed an easy way for gatekeepers to find exactly what they need to promote a lifelong love of reading. AMPkids.com is now equipped with easy-to-navigate libraries of books, series and resources. Visitors can filter and scroll through each library to browse the full collection, or go directly to a brand their child already loves to find all the related tools for hands-on learning. For example, Phoebe and Her Unicorn fans can go to any of the comics collections and easily tab through information about the book, hilarious videos starring Phoebe and Marigold, engaging activities that bring the comics to life, and even robust teaching guides designed by educators for educators (in accordance with Common Core State Standards) to connect STEAM subjects to the simple joy of a good book.
Reading is for everyone, a message that AMP Kids has always championed and can now shout a little louder. Subscribe to our monthly newsletter or check back often for book news, teaching tools, sneak peeks, giveaways and more!
