Speakaboos Is Here for Early Literacy

To address issues regarding literacy, new programs are regularly being created and implemented by governments, education departments and teachers everywhere. To provide extra solutions, organizations and other companies create websites, develop apps and other things online that will also give aid and support to literacy programs and strategies. One of which is this online interactive storybook library called Speakaboos.

Speakaboos, an educational-technology startup that offers a subscription-based service, is an interactive storybook library with a huge collection of more than 150 fascinating stories and songs. The stories engage children, especially those ages 2-7 years old, with reading that motivates and encourages them to read more. What’s even more interesting about it is that it provides a multilingual storybook service for reading books online and offline for both children and teachers.

Things that children, parents and teachers can find in Speakaboos include:

  • Nursery rhymes, fairy tales and fables
  • Classic books such as Cinderella, The Three Little Pigs, and Rapunzel
  • ABC or alphabet songs
  • Popular characters like Angelina Ballerina, Thomas the Tank Engine, and Sid the Science Kid
  • Newer classics such as Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site, Wild Things Are and Swimmy
  • Curated library of favorite children’s topics such as animals, music, princesses and more

The team and staff behind Speakaboos aim to increase literacy in childhood from preschool to second grade. They believe that the earlier a child is introduced to reading, the better. That is why they are working double time to make Speakaboos an avenue for young kids to learn how to read and write as early as possible.

Speakaboos introduced a scaffolded and readiness-based learning experience. Depending on the kids’ literacy level and readiness, the teachers or parents can help them learn through these stages:

  • Read to Me
  • Read and Play
  • Read it Myself

Speakaboos was launched in 2008. Because of its efficiency and effectiveness in helping early literacy, it is considered as number one in the charts for kids learning games and apps.

With apps and online learning sites, like Speakaboos, it is no longer difficult to motivate young kids to read and write as early as the age of 2. Early literacy is possible!
