Support reading at school and at home with PM eCollection

PM eCollection

The PM eCollection consists of over 400 eBooks taken from the PM collection all of which have been completely redesigned for compatibility with any device. It re-imagines guided and independent reading for the digital age. The PM eCollection comprises three pillars: The ContentThe eReader App, and The Website.



"Our school has been using the PM eCollection for the past few months. Parents find it very straightforward to navigate. It has been extremely useful for pupils working remotely to continue to work on their reading skills. Parents regularly record their child's reading and this enables our teachers to monitor our pupil's progress. The customer service and technical team have also been very supportive"


Clíona Ní Cheallaigh, Deputy Principal, Scoil an Spioraid Naoimh Boys

The eReader App

The PM eCollection eReader app allows students and teachers to choose a reading profile based on the needs of learners in specific situations.

  • The Guided Reading profile disables the audio and record functionality so that distractions are minimised.
  • The Independent Reading profile enables the audio and record functionality, offering full support for students reading on their own.
  • The Custom Reading profile allows the user to enable or disable My Words and audio functionality, and show or hide the text to create opportunities for retelling and other oral literacy activities.
  • New for 2023 - 550 titles now available for use at home or in school by students
