Books kids CAN read.
Written by award winning teacher, Libby Curran, these little books are written to get kids reading for fun and information, right from the start.

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 in school. After 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 background knowledge, while improving reading comprehension and foundational skills that prepare students for Common Core standards.

Quizzes disguised as games.
Play the train game after finishing a book, but don't tell them it's a quiz! On the parent's page you can check up on their progress by seeing their scores on the quizzes, question types and the individual books themselves.

Packed with FREE goodies!
Our free version has 100+ pages of free content and unlimited access to our premium illustrated dictionary with audio definitions.
