Books Kids CAN Read.

Written by Libby Curran, a People Magazine Teacher of the Year, these fun little books are field tested in real classrooms to get kids started on the path to reading independence.

Books Kids LOVE to Read.

Children are naturally curious, so encourage them to explore our beginning reading books on the alphabet, numbers, colors, animals, shapes, and science. Beginning readers need to read little books, but the Reading Train's unique design allows kids to explore big ideas, reading to learn at the same time as they learn to read. After reading, they can play the train quiz game, explore the audio dictionary and sing along with song books.

Give Your Kids the Tools to Succeed.

Stuck on a word? Tap and hold to hear every word and access the built in dictionary filled with hundreds of words. Play a unique quiz game at the end of every book to extend the learning. The Reading Train is packed full of tools to help children succeed, all on their own.

Read To Learn- Meets Common Core Standards

Kids can choose funny fiction and fascinating nonfiction on kid-friendly topics to build background knowledge while improving letter and sight word recognition, reading comprehension, and phonics skills.

Quizzes Disguised as Games.

Play the train game after finishing every book, but don't tell them it's a quiz! Check progress on the parent's page which shows books read and recorded and detailed scores on the quizzes.
