“87% of parents see major improvements in their child's ability to read within the first three weeks.” — Dr. Ed Green, Director, Family Literacy Centers
Used by Family Literacy Centers across the USA, The Family Readers has helped tens of thousands of children learn to read.
Increase reading confidence
The Family Readers storybooks provide quick, measurable success. You will see your child's self-esteem skyrocket as his or her reading skills improve.
Improve school grades quickly
“An independent study shows that children increase .45 grade levels every 4 weeks using The Family Readers storybooks.”
Create lasting memories as you read together
For best results, spend twenty minutes a day guiding your child and you will treasure the time you spend with together.
Learn moral values
The Family Readers storybooks are much more than a learn-to-read program. Children also learn values such as honesty because each book contains a unique moral theme.
Read and understand over 2,500 words!
The Family Readers increase reading skills by starting with simple words and progressing through a more advanced vocabulary.
Most parents assume it is the responsibility of public school to teach children to read. Isn't that too risky?
My son has always been very intelligent. His reading accuracy has improved 100% since he has been reading the Learn-to-Read Deluxe Set. In the past, he would skip words—even whole lines of words. With The Family Readers, his reading skills are nearly perfect now.
I have used The Learn-to-Read Set to introduce reading to my 5-year-old son. These Family Readers make reading simple and enjoyable. I love the results and also plan to use them with my youngest son. I recommend this series of books to any parent with young readers.
My son has started reading and loves every minute of it. He is so proud of what he has accomplished and it is so structured that it helps me teach him in a much better way.

Love the books. My four year old is READING!!

Lay books flat on tables so their covers are visible and attract the children's attention.
Give your children something to look forward to by reading to them every day and at the same time if possible.
Have your children read out loud to you.
Listen carefully and make sure to praise your children's reading.
Even after your children can read on their own, keep reading to them so they can enjoy stories and books that interest them but are too hard for them to read by themselves.
Visit the public library often. Most libraries sponsor summer reading clubs with easy goals for preschool, primary and elementary students.
Ask questions (who were the main characters, what happened, what part of the book did they like best) but don't drill them too much on novel content. Summer reading should foster reading for pleasure.
Provide incentives and set an example by reading yourself.
