The Reading Kingdom is a subscription game program that helps your child learn to read.

There is a plethora of information and resources on the website for parents and students. Included are activities for kids, books for kids, apps, reading games for kids, worksheets for kids and much more. Activities -- a couple of examples: How to make your own soap boat. How to make your own soccer ball. Fun! The APPS contain a list of helpful apps -- mostly for Math. The Books section lists kids storybooks that might interest your child and includes some of the classic tales we all know and love. Worksheets include printable downloads of holiday themed practice sheets, top 100 sight words, and 2 reading comprehension worksheets. Games mentioned included Simon Says, Name Ball and Connect Four. We didn't have the physical game to play connect four and not enough people for Name Ball but we did enjoy playing Simon Says.
My granddaughter has enjoyed Reading Kingdom. She is learning to read and these types of interactive games are very helpful for her. She loves to play "that owl game." You click on an owl to get into the lessons. She seems quite adept at the game and I am hoping that it is slowly helping her reading skills.
Reading Kingdom keeps you updated on your child’s progress with regular e-mails.
