How do the books work?

1. The Classic Story

We start with the classic book, unabridged, and split it into smaller portions to create small wins! Especially for less confident readers.

2. The Life Skills

At the end of the story, we insert a skills chapter that matches the character's story. For example: in The Little Red Hen we included instructions for how to grow wheat and bake bread!

3. The Results

Children and Families who read our books experience a stronger connection with each other, reduced anxiety, and increased confidence and capability!
