Using READ, you can scan a print book and record one or more readings, then your child can playback that reading while following along in the print book at any time.
Pediatric and education research evidence identifies three key factors critical to reading in children:
First, exposure to a broad vocabulary as early in a child’s life as possible is critical to their future success in school and life. Reading print books to and with children, starting as soon after birth as possible and continuing well after they can read themselves, is the best way to expose them to language, vocabulary and reading. READ can be used to read any type of book to children and for anyone in the family to record their own reading for the child to hear.
Second, exposure of children to digital devices is detrimental in the first three to four years of their life. Studies show that cartoons and animation and digital content are too hot (stimulating) and do not contribute to learning at the level that reading to children from print books does. READ provides a happy medium, allowing parents to expose their children to reading through print rather than digital books, while using digital technology to ease the burden and to expose their children to multiple people reading books to them. Diversity in reading is ideal for children.
Third, learning to read from print books, with guidance from a teacher, tutor, parent, sibling or relative, facilitates word recognition, in context of use, as well as illustration in the case of illustrated and picture books. READ is building advanced tools to help teachers and parents teach children to read from print books – the ideal medium.
READ – a amazing way to read to kids and to help them learn to read.
