Free Learn to Read App Subscriptions for Kids

Parenting



As a parent who is a life long lover of books and reading, I'm proud to have also raised four kids who love to read and who now have a special affinity for the printed word as young adults. So, I could not be more excited to share some exciting news with those of you with young kids. Hooked on Phonics, which has been helping boys and girls learn to read since 1987, is offering free one year digital learn to read app subscriptions (a $40 value) for a limited time, this Friday, March 1, 2019 only. This freebie promotes literacy in the U.S. and honors Read Across America Day which falls on March 2.




5 Easy Ways to Get the Family Reading


Jamie Levinthal, subscriber experience manager at Hooked on Phonics, gives moms, dads and other care givers, five simple suggestions to get kids and the whole family reading.





  • Make reading a fun, special activity, not a chore
  • Include reading as part of the dinnertime & bedtime routines
  • Take full advantage of your kids' daily screen time
  • Turn reading into an interactive activity
  • Take every opportunity to build literacy skills




Reading Impacts Your Child's Future


There's no doubt that books engage and develop a kid's mind: pictured above is my eldest son, who was hired at NASA during college and after earning his college degree recently started his career as an engineer with a major aerospace company. 

As I've learned from doing these things myself as a mom, making reading a fun, interactive and family-wide daily activity can go a long way in helping your kids enjoy reading. Ultimately, all the efforts you invest when your children are young, are likely to produce immediate, noticeable positive benefits through childhood, into adolescence, to maximize their success as adults one day.
