National Cheese Day

As a company that supplies educational materials, we have no reason to celebrate National Cheese Day. But, according to our founder (Veronica Blade), cheese is the yummiest and most versatile food — and it’s her favorite thing to eat.

Veronica insists that cheese makes people of all ages happy. When children are happier and well-fed, they do better in their studies.

So…. Happy National Cheese Day, everyone!

Memorial Day

Today, we honor those who sacrificed for our freedoms — such as the right to an education. 

Did you know that Congress passed Memorial Day into law in 1968 (which went into effect in 1971) to be celebrated on the last Monday in May?

But the first observance of fallen soldiers began in Waterloo, NY after a call by General John Logan for a nationwide day of remembrance. More and more cities began doing it too and from there it grew. Read more here.

Mother's Day

Happy Mother’s Day!

 

We’re here for you and we want to make your job as a mother easier by providing all the first steps to getting your child or student to read.

We start by making our stories as simple as possible:

  • We ensure all the stories do not have unnecessary words or symbols (we only ever use periods).
  • We avoid any words above the level for that step.
  • All words are only one syllable.
  • Levels 0 through 2 use only short-vowel words.

Then we create adorable stories with a real plot and add vibrant and colorful illustrations.
 
Now through Monday, we are doing a flash sale! Use the promo code below. 

Happy Mother's Day!
