Meet the Ready-to-Read Program

The Ready-to-Read program is vetted by educational experts and designed to help young kids become confident readers. Five distinct levels featuring books spanning every genre and category — including hilarious fiction, beloved characters, engaging nonfiction, and graphic novel-inspired stories — address every level of reader, from beginning to independent readers. This wide selection makes it easy for kids to find books they like and helps them as they develop important phonics, comprehension, and fluency skills. Additionally, the program provides teachers with helpful resources like lesson plans, reading guides, and online activities to make planning lessons students love and learn from a breeze.
