As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

Learn how to read with is a free public service online to motivate and teach children to read with phonics. It provides exciting a wide variety of phonics games and online interactive books.

Bryce is absolutely fascinated with the learning to read story, ‘The Robot and Mr. Mole’. He draws the characters and different scenes on his magna doodle everyday and has even started reading the words in the story too!

The Robot and Mr. Mole

This story about a robot...

This is a robot.

... who falls into a hole...

He falls into a hole.

... and meets Mr. Mole...

Mr. Mole is in the hole.

... who helps him out of the hole...

"Go up this rope," says Mr. Mole.

The End.

The End.

Now despite the length of the story, it actually goes into a lot of depth giving the reader a chance to click on each word with their mouse and learn how to sound it out, the pronunciation, and for this story in particular, emphasizes how the ‘long O’ works.

I love Starfall’s stories, their animation, and how it’s teaching without teaching, you know? Starfall has a ton of different stories for all levels of reading, including learning the alphabet, in either online or hard copy, print outs (which are for parents and teachers), and even has some apps too!

I highly recommend this to any parent or teacher looking for a fun and interactive way to introduce their children or students to the alphabet or learning how to read at beginner to advanced levels. It can be fun to learn how to read!

Thanks for reading,
