We support children in under-resourced communities and provide caregivers and educators with the tools they need to help them thrive.

The power of digital reading

While not everyone has access to a computer, library, or reliable internet connection, 96% of families use mobile phones. Our ABCD approach combines app-based access, books, continuous support and data to drive impact.

We provide year-round access to reading through apps that work on most low-cost devices

  • Read anytime, anywhere.
  • Free access online and offline for caregivers.
  • Available on mobile phones, tablets, Chromebooks, and laptops.

  • Digital behavior change campaigns
  • Reading incentives including rewards and notifications

About our books

Readers build a better world, and we want them to have the best building blocks. We work with the top publishers in the US and abroad to curate book collections that inspire, educate, and empower children.

We source children’s books that are inclusive, diverse, and enriching. Our focus on socioemotional development invites children to explore their emotions, develop empathy and manage feelings like fear, anger, or sadness.
