Discover the secret to reading success for your 3 - 9 yr old.

Worried about where your child is on the road to reading? Wondering what you can do as a parent to help make sure your child becomes a great reader?

Abound gives parents and caregivers of young children the information and tools they need to raise strong readers, including:
A simple, research-based “check in” that shows where your child stands against age-appropriate reading benchmarks;
Daily questions written by experts to drive engaging and fun conversations with your child that will build knowledge;
A weekly academic word - critical vocabulary your child needs to know for school success;
Carefully curated book recommendations based on your child’s current stage of development.

Kids learn through repeated exposures to information, and slowly building up knowledge about a subject over time. But what parent has time to organize that? Abound uses the structure of a 2-week theme, with a plan of quick-and-regular conversations, to fit into busy schedules without putting your child in front of another screen. You're already talking with your child -- Abound motivates you to talk in a way that grows your child's brain and sets your child up to read well in the years ahead.

Parents who use Abound are grateful to learn what it takes for their child to read well. But they talk the most about how surprised they are with what their child comes up with, and how good it feels to connect in ways that are so very satisfying.


Research-based insights into your child’s reading development:
Answer a brief questionnaire about your child to understand where he/she stands against state and national benchmarks on the three critical areas of reading development (what we call, Letters & Sounds, Vocabulary & Knowledge, and Awareness & Regulation);
Receive feedback and recommendations on how to support your child’s reading growth;
Track and monitor progress over time by checking your child’s development against benchmarks every 8 weeks;
Easily share your child’s results with teachers and caregivers, and be fully prepared to discuss your child’s reading-related skills during the key early years.

Engaging daily questions to generate essential back-and-forth conversations with your kids -- to get them to wonder, and think deeply and differently:
Questions tied to a fun and entertaining two-week theme;
Designed by experts to help you build crucial early reading and critical thinking skills;
Preferences customized to engage in conversations at the times most convenient for you and your child;
Learning content designed to integrate into your busy day – whether over dinner, or during the daily commute to child care or school

Carefully curated book recommendations, along with suggested questions and vocabulary to expand your child’s understanding and perspective:
LIke the daily questions, book recommendations are related to each two-week theme;
Book selections are customized to your child’s age and learning-to-read stage.

Tools to personalize the experience and capture and share precious memories:
Add multiple children to one account;
Email and share measurements against benchmarks with teachers and caregivers;

Amazing for parents of grade level kids

Love this. The check ins are great for making sure your child is on point. Something that has been missing from this area for a while.

Very doable ways to help your emerging reader(s)!

Full of fun conversation starters and quick mini-lessons to spark curiosity and engage children and adults in useful vocabulary and subject matter. This app is well-founded in research and is making a real difference for us!

Very informative on the dynamics involved in early readers as they move through the learning process. I am looking forward to further assistance in my job of teaching my children to read and comprehend.
