Age of Learning Launches ReadingIQ, an Expert-Curated Digital Library

ReadingIQ from Age of LearningI’m thrilled to share that last week Age of Learning launched ReadingIQ, an advanced digital library for children 12 and under, which gives families and teachers access to thousands of high-quality books, curated by experts to advance literacy.

ReadingIQ provides the best of children’s literature, including Caldecott and Newbery award winners, National Geographic and National Geographic Kids books, more than 1,000 exclusive titles, and thousands of additional high-quality fiction and nonfiction books from leading publishers. Plus, the entire ReadingIQ library is easily searchable by topic and leveled with both the Guided Reading and Lexile® systems so that children can find titles that match their interests and reading ability.

As with ABCmouse Early Learning Academy, we’ve made ReadingIQ available at no cost to teachers for use in their classrooms, with the ability to assign an entire reading level of books to each student to read at home, completely free. Families who want full home access to all of the ReadingIQ library can subscribe for less than $5 a month or $30 a year. ReadingIQ is available at www.ReadingIQ.com, or can be downloaded to smartphones and tablets through the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Age of Learning Joins National Initiative to Transform “Book Deserts” into Book-Rich Environments

I am pleased to announce Age of Learning’s latest education access initiative here on my blog.

More than one million children from birth to age 8 currently live in public housing in the U.S. These children typically have less access to quality education and learning resources, resulting in an achievement gap that begins when they enter kindergarten unprepared to learn and widens as they progress to 3rd grade. Research shows that more than 80 percent of children from low-income families are not proficient readers by the end of 3rd grade. To help address this gap, Age of Learning recently joined the Leadership Cohort of the Book-Rich Environments Initiative.
