TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) - An effort to offer e-books for children in a variety of languages has added the Cherokee language to its offering.

Fort Collins, Colorado-based Unite for Literacy already offered narrated books in 17 different languages, including Navajo, Spanish and German. The Cherokee Nation has announced that the Cherokee language has become the 18th language offered.

Fluent speakers who work with the tribe’s translation department read and recorded 10 early literacy books for Unite for Literacy’s online e-book library.

The Cherokee narrations are expected to be online in July.
