Regardless of the pandemic and current realities, reading and learning do not have to come to a halt. Kids love to explore the world and discover new things, and books are like magic portals into an imaginative world full of endless possibilities.

We are pleased to partner with Akiddie, an e-library of African themed children’s books developed for and targeted at children in elementary schools (mostly aged between 5 and 10), to give your kids 3 months FREE access to books written in English, Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo

Akiddie uses stories with African characters, plots and narratives to educate children and pass lessons with modern themes ranging from gender equality, inclusion and the SDGs to financial literacy, tech and entrepreneurship.

The e-library currently has 20+ books and is growing.

Here’s how it works:

  • Launch the page here or go to and input FCMB as referer
  • Input your details and complete registration
  • Click on Books and scroll or search by title or author
  • Select preferred book
  • Select Read Now and enjoy
  • You can also add a book to favourites

Keeping our kids engaged, educated and entertained during this pandemic is key. We hope your child has an enjoyable time reading the books on Akiddie, brought to them by FCMB Kids Banking.
