onecourse offers children a library filled with over 200 books in their own language (or the local language of instruction). These books have been written, illustrated and edited to teach, engage and fascinate. The library has been curated to ensure the child can see themselves and their own realities, while also unlocking the door to new worlds, realms and possibilities.

onecourse books are carefully chosen and/or adapted to suit specific cultures and contexts, and each can be accessed in a range of different modes. These modes range from: the child listening to spoken audio with words highlighted in sync; the child touching individual words to hear the audio for that word only; to finally the child reading the text themselves.

Children have access to the full library so they can freely choose from the whole range or return to favourite stories again and again.
Many of our stories have been sourced (sometimes with edits) from these open access publishers:
