Kidobi And Simon & Schuster Launch Ready-to-Read Recommendation App for Young Readers
The online video platform Kidobi and publishing powerhouse Simon & Schuster are introducing the new Ready-to-Read Recommendation App, which provides reading recommendations for early readers ages three to eight.
Designed to support the development of early literacy skills by matching young readers with books at the optimal level of difficulty, the Ready-to-Read Recommendation App is now available at http://www.Kidobi.com/Ready-to-Read. The web app analyzes the child's age, interests, and reading level, helping parents find books that suit their child's reading level.
The app features many popular titles including Olivia, Eloise, and Mike the Knight, as well as favorites from beloved children's author Eric Carle.
Kidobi sees the launch of the new Ready-to-Read web app as an extension of its mission to provide powerful tools that support parents in today's digital age. "Personalization is at the core of what we do at Kidobi, using technology to give each child content that is at just the right level for them," said Eric Sorenson, Director of Research & Content at Kidobi. "With the Ready-to-Read Recommendation App, we're able to bring that element of personalization to the books they read as well, which we hope will contribute to more kids developing a lifelong love of reading."
"We're thrilled to be joining forces with Kidobi to promote literacy confidence and provide helpful resources for young readers and their families," said Julie Christopher, Associate Marketing Director, Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing. "Our goal is for beginning readers to feel successful whether they are just starting out at the Rising Star level or have mastered the Megastar level, because with Ready-to-Read, they're all reading stars. The Recommendation Application takes that empowerment a step further by allowing parents to create a customized list of books for their new reader. It's a valuable tool for finding the perfect book for your child."
