Content is at the heart of what we do.

At Capstone, it's not what you tell, but how you tell it. We engage readers by creating the right content for the right purpose for the right kid. And, no matter their interest, we create content that works in any binding, as print or digital, and in conjunction with any instructional method or edtech tool. Reading happens throughout the school day—whether in the building or at home.

And wherever learning is happening, Capstone is there.

Books

Our huge selection of print books delight readers and support learning across multiple genres.

Interactive eBooks

Our eBooks are supported by read-aloud audio and offer unlimited access for each school site.

PebbleGo

Our databases help develop critical thinking and media literacy skills while promoting digital citizenship.

Celebrate Native American Heritage Month!

Capstone authors Katrina M. Phillips and Andrea L. Rogers have some great ideas to help you celebrate Native American Heritage Month in your classroom.
