“We have tried many eBooks for our kids and nothing has quite grabbed their attention like iRead With Interactive eBooks. The concept of the stories is genius." - Mom and More

iRead With animated stories encourage a participative reading experience engaging both child and parent. This new shared-reading method was created in conjunction with University of McGill University Child Phonology Lab, where extensive research shows that the most effective read-alouds are those where children are actively involved.
