Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Brilliant resource!

Great resource for teens and adults who struggle with reading to practise their reading skills with material aimed at an older audience!

An excellent resource

As admin of Dyslexia Support Australia these apps fill a great gap for older struggling readers. Decodable books are essential for children to gain confidence in reading Lang patterns they have learnt. Older readers are usually stuck with books written for 5 year olds. An ebook format is also a wonderful way to engage teens, especially those who have probably formed a negative association with books due to their struggles.
