MightyBookjr.com is an award winning, safe and secure, “Kid’s Friendly” website that helps children discover the joys of learning to read. It can also be used for English as a Second Language and there is a whole section of books for kids with special needs.
Here’s a little more about what inspired this initiative:
“We saw a story about a company called Tom’s Shoes where for every pair of shoes purchased they give away a pair to a child in need. We thought that was a pretty great idea so we decided to give away free subscriptions to our entire catalog of books to home school educators and parents across the country with the hope that they will see why thousands of teachers subscribe to our theory that learning English should be fun,” says president Cliff Dew.
And what others are saying:
“I homeschool my four kids, and even my 2 year old loves to sit and listen to the books and songs! We have really enjoyed the art/music area with my older ones and also the science songs. There is just so much here to click and discover. I recommend you try it out! Great job MightybookJr folks!” – Melissa M. Oklahoma Home Schooler.
“My Supervisor asked me about your reading program and I told him that it encouraged students to read more. We have a student that did not want to read when told to get a book. Now he does his homework so he can go and listen to a story and even answer the questions. He has also started to look for books in the library. Merry Christmas!” – Gloria D., 21st Century After School Program.
I just signed up for it but have yet to show it to Gavin. Given how well he’s taken to the interactive stories on my iPhone, I think he’ll love it.
