We’re thrilled to have won a Mom’s Choice Award! Here’s the announcement.
April 17, 2012 – The Mom’s Choice Awards has honored Reading Kingdom as being among the best in family-friendly products. Reading Kingdom is a patented, online program that offers research based, adaptive reading and writing programs and reading games for kids.

Parents, educators, librarians and retailers look for the Mom’s Choice Awards seal of approval when selecting quality materials for children and families. An esteemed panel of judges are bound by a strict code of ethics which ensures expert and objective analysis free from any manufacturer association. The evaluation process scores entries on a number of elements including production quality, design, educational value, entertainment value, originality, appeal and cost. The result is a list of the best in family-friendly products that parents and educators can feel confident in using.
In accepting the award, Reading Kingdom CEO, Jonathan Blank, noted “Reading Kingdom is the best reading program available, and it is gratifying to receive this acknowledgment.”
Reading is the most important skill a child will ever learn. But government figures show that only 35% of children are reading at a proficient level while a staggering 35% are failing. Until now, educators relied almost exclusively on phonics and whole language to teach reading – both of which have significant problems that make failure inevitable for many children. Reading Kingdom, on the other hand, offers a new 6 skill model of reading instruction that incorporates the best parts of phonics and whole language while teaching additional skills that make reading and writing success inevitable for every child!
About Reading Kingdom: Reading Kingdom is a fun, easy-to-use online reading program that teaches children 4-10 years old how to read and write to a third grade level. The program is based on the groundbreaking work of Dr. Marion Blank, Director of the Light on Learning Program at Columbia University. It is the only program available that teaches all six skills children need to learn how to read and write. For more information please visit www.ReadingKingdom.com
