So glad to share this new app to help kids learn to read by a local NH teacher, Libby Curran

 

"Books kids LOVE to read.
Children are naturally curious, so encourage them to explore our leveled books on numbers, colors, animals, geometry, and science that will give them the foundational knowledge they need to succeed later in school. In between reading stories they can play the train quiz game, explore the FREE audio dictionary and listen to song books.

Give your kids the tools to succeed.
Stuck on a word? With tap to listen functionality, an audio dictionary filled with hundreds of words, and a fun game at the end of every book to assess learning, The Reading Train is packed full of tools to help children succeed, all on their own.

Read to learn
Kids read through leveled books on numbers, colors, animals, geometry, and science to build foundational knowledge, while improving reading comprehension and improving skills that prepare students for Common Core standards."
