Folks fond of Frodo, Curious George, and CliffsNotes may now enjoy all this and more, thanks to a new website make-over unveiled by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, a Boston publishing company that started out specializing in textbooks and literary titles.
(Those literary titles include Curious George and the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, which often featured a hobbit named Frodo.)
As HMH moves forward to adapt to a world of iPads and e-readers, it has decided to bring much of its resources to a “fully integrated content, community, and commerce site serving lifelong learners.”
The site is hmhco.com.
“We believe that our customers, whether educators, parents or book lovers, will find engaging and relevant resources on hmhco.com,” John Dragoon, HMH’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer, said in a statement. “From CliffsNotesstudy guides to assessment tools, and from Curious George apps for young learners to Life of Pi and J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series, we have extended access to our content and created an online hub for lifelong learners.”
For a personalized site experience, teachers and administrators, parents, and lifelong learners can create an individual or an institutional account.
