Award-winning content
Clever Kids University presents games and eBooks that have been recognized with awards from the Association of American Publishers and National Parenting Publications among other prestigious recognition.

Memorable and Fun Phonics
Mega Mouth Decoder books and songs introduce fun and memorable characters designed to help students hear and pronounce the 44 sounds in the English language. Each character’s name, story, and personality emphasize the target sound in an unforgettable way.

Decodable Leveled Readers
Students immediately apply new phonics skills each week as they record themselves reading a book about Sam and his friends.

Balanced Literacy That Emphasizes Writing
Because young students need to write in order to learn to read, students make pictures and write about the books they are reading. They can even create, publish, and email their own variations of books.

STEM Reading and Writing
In addition to phonics, high-interest STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) books are presented each week to build background knowledge, comprehension, and vocabulary.

No Internet Required to Play!
After downloading the app and content, your child can use Clever Kids University without an Internet connection. Each time you connect to Wi-Fi, your child’s progress is uploaded so that you can continue on another device or review your child’s progress in reports. View our Privacy Policy here:

Built-in Motivation
It’s easy for parents and children to celebrate every step along the learning journey. In addition to certificates for each new letter sound and each new book, children earn coins for mastered activities and stars for every calendar day they log into the app.

“My son was so proud that he read his very first book after only a few days on the program!”
“She has started sounding out every word she sees!”
“Very. Fun. My son enjoys his learning.”
“This is very engaging for children!”

Perfect start for beginning readers!

My son was ready to learn to read, but I didn’t know how to get started. He knows his letters and lots of sounds. This app teaches all the skills he needs to read a book every week. He was reading by day 4! Each week, the books get more challenging. The app is really motivating and fun. Perfect way to get started reading. Highly recommended!!
