ReadingIQ: A Digital Library with Award-Winning Books Specially Curated for KidsJan 15, 2019 | 1 Votes by Aethyna 10 rate Have a young, reluctant or difficult reader at home? ReadingIQ might be able to do wonders for your child!
With the advent of Kindle and other digital book apps/ devices, books have started the slow transition from hard copies into the digital world, and similarly, ReadingIQ aims to change how reading is done in this digital day and age, albeit by curating books specifically for young and reluctant or difficult readers.
Instead of holding a cumbersome and frankly, not environmental-friendly book, you can get your child unlimited access to thousands of books via ReadingIQ on any device you want, be it on your PC, tablets or phones!
ReadingIQ's digital library houses books of all types, whether it is a popular and beloved classic or a brand-new and award-winning title written by Newbery Medal winners. All titles are carefully curated, illustrated by Caldecott Medal winners, and are suitable for kids under the age of 12. Though, ReadingIQ offers different sets of books depending on the age bracket/ group your child falls into rather than lumping everyone, from pre-readers to independent readers, together.
Most books also have Scholastic Guided Reading and Lexile levels assigned and the system uses these levels to recommend books to your child. You can even use these grades as reference yourself when deciding books from which age bracket your child should read from.
If your child doesn't like reading as much, you might want to start them off with some of the audiobooks instead. After all, out of the thousands of books, more than 700 of them are professionally voiced titles. Although the majority of the books in this game are in English, ReadingIQ also provides a variety of books for Spanish readers between the ages of 2 to 12 as well.
Best yet, ReadingIQ gives you the ability to monitor your child's progress. Plus, you can add up to 3 children per account so there's no need to purchase multiple subscriptions if you have 3 or fewer children in the family!
ReadingIQ is subscription-based and is available for only $4.99 per month. Not to mention, if you sign up now, you can get a 1-month trial for free! How amazing is that?
Sounds like a steal? It sure is! If you're a parent who would like to encourage your kids to read more, ReadingIQ is a fantastic solution. Give it a try, and if your child likes it, you can then sign up for a subscription!
