Our program

iRead With is an innovative shared reading program designed to foster language development and help preschoolers get ready to read.

iRead With animated stories encourage a participative reading experience engaging both child and parent. This new shared reading method was created in conjunction with University of McGill’s Child Phonology Lab, where extensive research shows that the most effective read-alouds are those where children are actively involved.
