Just-Right Books For Beginning Readers

Based on Libby Curran's award-winning books, Reading Train apps offer a huge collection of funny fiction and fascinating non-fiction books on the alphabet, numbers, colors, shapes, animals, and science. Reading Train apps do more than teach kids how to read, they help kids learn about the world and gain the foundational skills to succeed later in school. New books will be added frequently for in-app subscribers.

Groundbreaking Quiz Game

After reading a book, Reading Train apps generate a unique set of quiz questions presented as the Train Game that assess children's understanding of what they just read. The quiz includes spelling, sentence completion, word matching and reading comprehension in an absorbing game. 

Each level of books has a carefully calibrated quiz that meets the unique needs of a student at that given level. As children continue through the collection, they acquire vocabulary, phonics skills and sight words to take them from beginning reading to reading independence.
