"There are so many great things about the Reading Kingdom...it's really easy to use, it builds on success, and your child really enjoys doing it."
Cindy Crawford, who used Reading Kingdom with her children

Our online reading program has brought success to thousands of children. Read what parents have to say about how the Reading Kingdom has improved their children's performance in preschool reading, first grade reading, 2nd grade reading and beyond!

"All three of my children report that they 'love Reading Kingdom because it is a lot of fun.' In fact, with adorable animal characters and engaging activities, they often don’t even realize that Reading Kingdom is a learning program. They consider it to be a fun game that they are 'playing'. And since it is a customized program it is adaptable to their particular needs. As a mom and an educator, I feel a great sense of pride observing my children actively engaged in this program as I watch their confidence soar when they "master" a skill…In my opinion, what makes Reading Kingdom an exceptional program for use with my children is that it expands on the traditional phonics method to teach words that cannot be sounded out phonemically (the majority of words in the English language). In fact, my six year old son has wisely questioned me in the past asking, "Why can't I sound out so many of the words in my book…that doesn't make sense?" With Reading Kingdom…..learning to read finally "makes sense" to him."

"I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to review the Reading Kingdom. This is a fantastic tool that has helped my daughter get back on track. It is easy to use, fun and holds her attention. It's helping her with reading, spelling, sequencing, motor skills, grammar, comprehension, phonics and computer skills! Chesney has been using this program for only a few weeks and has already shown drastic improvements. In fact, she was being pulled from her class daily for "reading enrichment," where a reading specialist was helping her one-on-one. Since she's been using the Reading Kingdom, they said she no longer needs the extra help!"
Shelley Van Witzenburg, parent
"My son adores the sessions through Reading Kingdom. Every night since his sign up he asks "When do my sessions start?" Here my unruly 7 year old who usually I fight tooth and nail to get to do his regular homework WANTS to hop online and start the newest session of Reading Kingdom. By the second night, he was comfortable with the program and the keyboard and actually argued with me that he wanted to go to start the next one instead of calling it a night. He doesn't even realize he is learning, he thinks it's an interactive game. Of course, I'm not going to tell him any different. The program speaks for itself when I say, sign your child up. They will WANT to do it."
Hattie Ramos Bruner, parent
"I have 3 children in your program. All 3 are Dyslexic and your program has exploded their reading over the past year. My oldest, Serena, is 10 and this program has helped her leaps and bounds! We all love and appreciate your program and tell people about our successes with it all the time. Thank you for your great program, it has saved our lives!"
Bethany Nauman, parent
"My son has tried other online reading programs and quickly gets bored with them. This program rewards you with a fun animation and sound whenever you answer a question. My son thinks these are hilarious and it keeps him motivated to continue. In fact, sometimes he asks to do a second lesson. (and believe me, that’s unheard of!). In the 30 days since we have been doing this program my son's reading skills have sky rocketed! He is really loving this program and is even excited to read to me now."
Jennifer Mirock, parent

"The Reading Kingdom has been a blessing for us in enabling our daughter to learn how to read. It is an extraordinarily organized and clear system and it is strengthening Alex's language skills and helping her to make better sense of the school world and the larger world around her."
Liz Stanton, parent
"Within eight weeks of beginning The Reading Kingdom, Ben's progress was enormous. Each day that we continue the programs, he improves. It has also boosted his self-esteem. I can't thank Dr. Blank enough for helping my son excel"
Gail Weiner, parent
"Your reading program is great! It is so easy to follow, at every step it guides me on exactly what I have to do, and because it doesn't take much time it is easy to incorporate into our busy schedule. Most importantly, of course, is that it works! I've also been amazed at how it holds my son's interest. My son is learning to read --and he loves it."
Ilene Goldson, parent
"When our son Alec's kindergarten teacher alerted us to his difficulties in the classroom, we knew we had to find some help. We started Alec on Dr. Blank's reading program and have seen wonderful progress. Alec's first grade teacher has been amazed at his breakthroughs. Dr. Blank's program has made all the difference."
Alex and Susan Deland, parents
"At the end of first grade, Emily, our 7-year old daughter, was placed in a special education class and we were told to have low expectations of her ability. Within three months of starting this reading program, Emily made her first real progress in reading and writing. Her confidence soared and she actively participated in class activities"
Lynne and Ron Rosario, parents
"The Reading Kingdom delivers on its promise! My daughter was having trouble with the alphabet in kindergarten. So I started her on the Reading Kingdom and within a short time, she became a confident reader. Today, she's among the best in her class!"
Stephanie Heine, parent
"From the time he was in preschool, our child, Brian, craved the ability to read, but we were not sure how to teach him. Dr. Blank's programs showed us the way. Now Brian reads proficiently and prolifically-with full understanding. It has done wonders for his confidence in all areas of his life."
Cristina Sperber, parent
"The Reading Kingdom is the answer to my prayers. As a homeschooler, I was desperate and determined to find materials to help my son read and comprehend better. Dr. Blank's methods proved to be just what I was looking for. Everything she offers worked and was so easy to do! In very little time my son became a strong confident reader."
Colleen Dillon, parent
"We were told that our son John was dyslexic and would never be a successful reader. But within 6 months of starting the reading program, his reading soared. His teachers and I are amazed. Thank you, Dr. Blank."
Maria Saia, parent
"Within a matter of months of starting my son on Dr. Blank's system, his reading skills improved dramatically and he became a confident and successful student. For us, Dr. Blank has been a life saver!"
Kathy Troyer, parent
"Using this reading program, my son's reading skills have been raised to a level well beyond his grade. I cannot credit Dr. Blank's reading skills training enough for raising my son's self-esteem and guiding him on a path to achieving his full potential."
V.W. Shiah, M.D. and parent
"My daughter was struggling to learn how to read. At the end of first grade she was far behind and losing self confidence. She found success with the Reading Kingdom which has helped her to quickly catch up. The stories really captured her interest and, as she started to read more fluently, she wanted to read more"
Dori Walton, parent
"The program is safe because there are no pop up ads, no chat and no links to follow. Parents can receive a weekly report by email so they know exactly where their child is when using the program…What I love about this program is that they offer this program as early as preschool age and even special needs learners can use the program. I also like that Reading Kingdom is clear to hear and is easy to understand, has nice graphics and they are really cute and age appropriate. I believe that kids, parents and teachers will truly love this online reading program."
Debra Baldwin, parent
"What we both like about the program that first caught our eyes were the cute, animated illustrations. Brandon recognizes and remembers the little owl wearing reading glasses and he asks me to set it up for him to play. Reading Kingdom makes learning fun and it's like a game for Brandon….He just loves learning and playing (especially on my computer now). This is the most excellent online learning & reading program I've tried."
Jennie Yuen
"Johnny really enjoys this program and I enjoy watching him learn. He seems to like the encouragement he receives from the program and is proud of himself when he completes a level. Speaking of completing levels, I receive email updates on his progress each time he "plays". He really does think he is playing too and that is the beauty of the Reading Kingdom...learning is fun!"
Stefany Thode, parent
"We wanted our son Julian to be proficient in reading from the very start. So in kindergarten, we introduced him to the Reading Kingdom. By first grade, his teachers reported that his reading skills were well beyond his peers. His reading ability has been central to his success in school. And unlike so many of his friends, he chooses reading as one of his favorite activities."
Beth Berman, parent
"I found Reading Kingdom to be a fantastic tool. My son's reading level has increased drastically. Thank you for offering such a fantastic product! It definitely has been instrumental for us."
