Sapling Learning's new e-book can be downloaded onto a computer or mobile device and read offline.


Before downloading the e-book, you must first access the e-book in Sapling Learning. If the steps described in that article do not match your experience with your Sapling Learning e-book, then you probably have an older version of the e-book. Older e-books can not be downloaded and read offline at this time.
