Ello revolutionizes learning to read by combining real books with speech recognition technology. Ello acts as a personal reading coach and uses evidence-based reading instruction to help readers when they get stuck and behavioral psychology to motivate them to keep going.

With an Ello subscription, you'll receive 5 books that are 'just right' for your reading level – delivered right to your door. Early readers engage with the books by reading them to the Ello companion app which listens as they read, helps them when they get stuck, and motivates them to develop a love for reading.

My son is starting to enjoy reading!

My seven year old has been struggling with reading, and because of that he had started to hate books and reading. After using Ello, he has gotten excited about reading for the first time! He loves how the interactive app follows along with him and rewards him with stars. He also loves that it helps him with difficult words. I was skeptical about how well it would work when I signed up for the trial, but I’m definitely going to continue with the monthly subscription! My son just told me to write, “it makes reading fun!”

Makes Reading Exciting

My daughter loves Ello. She is constantly asking when her next box of books is coming. When it does come, she loves to sit and read all of them at once. Sometimes the app misunderstands her, but it’s pretty good on the whole. I wish there were stats or information emailed to parents to show areas of mastery and improvement, problem words, and recommendations on whether to stay on the same level or move to the next one. Overall, I love how much progress my daughter has made in reading and how the app engenders a love of reading.

My son asks to read to Ello!

We recently started using Ello with our 5-year-old son who is an emerging reader. I have been amazed at how quickly he is reading through his books, with the support of Ello! The platform is kid-friendly and engaging; my son learned to navigate it within a couple sessions. Ello’s positive support has kept our son engaged and wanting to read, “just one more book!” The ideas behind and technology involved in creating this app are remarkable. We are excited to continue to use the app!
