Carol Stream, Ill.—Tyndale Kids is partnering with bestselling author Sigmund Brouwer in a Cool2Read school assembly program. As part of this school outreach initiative, Tyndale Kids relaunched its popular website,, in order to offer children and parents a safe online environment to find fun and affordable (and even free) books with great content by a variety of talented authors. The site originally launched in 2001 but has now been programmed with updated software and new titles.


“Digging into a good book can shape your world, and we’re invested in helping shape young minds and hearts,” said Katara Patton, Tyndale Kids Acquisitions Director. “Sigmund Brouwer has been doing school presentations for years with such great response; we figured this was the perfect way to expand his outreach while expanding ours.”


On, kids can learn about their favorite book series through discussion guides and character profiles. The site also includes fun facts about authors like Jerry B. Jenkins, Dandi Daley Mackall, Sandra Byrd, Bill Myers, and Marianne Hering. Kids can find games and downloads for a free e-book and song of the month, as well as a $1.99 e-book deal of the month.


Teachers and librarians can find marketing materials and teaching guides on the site, along with posters for use in their school or library. There are also helpful resources for parents and information for schools who want to invite Sigmund Brouwer to do a Cool2Read assembly during the 2012–2013 school year. Explore the site at
