Who Can Read? makes reading fun!
Who Can Read? is a book reader preloaded with free illustrated and photographed books. Each book features audio so a child can have the book read to her. The audio can be turned off as the child improves her abilities and begins to read to herself. The application features a friendly animated owl that appeals to children.
A NOTE TO PARENTS OF CHILDREN WHO ARE LEARNING TO READ:
Studies show that the best way to teach children to read is to match them up with books that are at their current reading level. Each book within the application is given a letter grade based on Guided Reading educational standards. The leveling system is explained in plain language in the application so parents know what level of book to start their child with. Books in the application are labeled from easiest (level A) to most challenging (level M). A gradient of book difficulty is a helpful tool for selecting just the “right” book for each child. Beginning readers build their fluency and comprehension skills when they read books that are not too easy and not too hard, allowing them to concentrate on comprehension instead of struggling to decode many unknown words.
