JumpStart has released many books, including workbooks, activity books, and stories.

In the 90s, some of the JumpStart games also included printable workbooks. These workbooks contained activities related to the game's curriculum.

In May 2000, Knowledge Adventure and Scholastic launched a series of JumpStart books for Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade age levels. Most of these were workbooks; there were also several Readers, children's books geared to the reading levels of the various grades.

The workbooks had several things in common with the games on which they were based, such as featuring the same characters, simple storylines, difficulty levels, and a rewards system; in this case, stickers which were to be used in the event of completing worksheets or sections.

All these books were illustrated by Duendes del Sur. The character designs are generally the same as those featured in the JumpStart Advanced series, but there are small deviations, especially in the earlier books (e.g. some of the early books depicted Hopsalot with a red shirt and buck teeth). Some books also feature different outfits based on the theme and storyline of the book.

In 2005, JumpStart released several printable stories based on the new series, which was then known as JumpStart World.

In 2015, JumpStart released its first graphic novel, JumpStart Windy Hollows.
