Grow A Reader is an informational app based on the Every Child Ready to Read 2. It presents the 5 practices—Talking, Singing, Playing, Reading, and Writing—in simple, concise terms followed by clear instructions for putting them to use. Users can toggle between booklists, videos and "tips" that put the 5 practices to use.
Calgary PL clearly put a lot of love (and money) into developing this product. The proof is in the pudding. Grow A Reader is a beautiful<em>,</em> engaging app that delivers vital information in an elegant form. The app functions smoothly even under my tap-crazed fingers. The videos are polished and professional. Many of them feature multiple camera angles! The librarians are poised and professional in each video. The had time to get comfortable in front of the camera. It's a great way to support young children's early literacy ed and entertain your kids when you're out and about.
