MICHELLE LEUNG Founder of ReadingMile.com
Research often shows that becoming a lifelong reader relies on developing a deep love of reading at very young age. In fact, if children do not enjoy reading when they are young, they are unlikely to read when they get older. The big challenge for parents and teachers is not simply getting children to read but getting them to enjoy reading, too. So how can parents and teachers motivate children to read?
ReadingMile.com is built to facilitate parents to help children to discover the pleasure and power of reading. We provide online and offline platforms, including:

1. ReadingMile® Online Programs

2. ReadingMile® Free Resources

3. ReadingMile® Storybook Series

ReadingMile® Program

Why children should read? Because there are many benefits of being a book lover, just to name a few: reading sparks your child's imagination and stimulates curiosity, which imparts a love of learning; reading also helps to improve your child's concentration and build up his logical thinking, which opens the door to your child's early academic success. Not to mention, reading aloud to your child could also strengthen the parent-child bonding.

So, how parents could inspire children to read? ReadingMile® Program is designed to facilitate parents to cultivate the love of reading in children at early childhood – from reading aloud to children, children read on their own, to children tell a story and create their own stories, all in one place! What's more? Children could earn ReadingMiles to redeem rewards as they read!

ReadingMile® Story Time

Becoming a book lover begins with being read aloud by parent at very young age. ReadingMile® Story Time assists you to read to your child a series of interesting stories that cultivate the reading interests and habits in your child. All stories are written in everyday language along with colorful illustrations and lively characters to introduce the fundamental life values, knowledge and skills. Each story comes with a set of free materials including games, checklists, certificates and parent guides to assist parents with engaging the child and further reinforce the lesson of each storybook.

Reading aloud to your young child is also about bonding. ReadingMile® Story Time just creates a magical way for you to strengthen the bond between you and your child. Enjoy reading!


ReadingMile® Read with DingDong

ReadingMile® Read with DingDong is a great story series to get your child learning to read for pleasure. Series of short phonics stories are specially designed to help your child to build up his confidence in reading. Each story focuses on a specific set of sounds. Your child listens to the audio of the short phrases, and attempts to read the sentence by himself, then submit his recording to get a score.

To help your child to build the passion and foundation of learning, praise him when gets a high score and encourage him when he gets a lower score. Most importantly, allow your child to read on his own pace and enjoy reading with no pressure.


ReadingMile® Kid Author

No cartoon or movie can hone the creativity and imagination of your child more than a good storybook. Let your child's creativity and imaginations run wild!

With ReadingMile® Kid Author, your child will follow along and learn how to create his storybooks step by step. Your child will apply the reading experience he has gained from ReadingMile® program, to add characters, pictures, drawings, and text, then save the storybook in your account. You may print out the storybook or share it online as desired.

Stories are beyond the words on a page. As your child writes the words, the story plays out in his mind, letting his creativity and imagination run wild. When your child writes a story, he tells a story too, enabling him to master the amazing and mind-blowing art of storytelling.

Reasons to Love ReadingMile®

"First of all, the content is soooo good! The stories are all about the daily life of kids, they can understand the situation easily and learn to do the right thing from DingDing and DongDong in a very natural way. The painting is also very fantastic, the characters are super cute and my son just loves them so much! Look forward to the following series! And since my son is quite interested in the books and willing to take some time to listen to me reading the books to him, we can spend quality time together. It's not only about learning English and manners, but cultivating the habit of reading as well. I believe he will be able to read books by himself very soon. This would be a valuable life-time habit for him. I really appreciate it."
