CLOSING THE GAPS WITH STORIES

There’s a learning gap in underserved communities, especially when it comes to reading. Plus, many children don’t see themselves reflected in the stories around them, which creates a diversity gap as well.

To help close these gaps, we’re creating an app that’s a game and a book—with leveled reading, curriculum tools, an Avatar Maker so kids can put themselves in the game, and stories they’ll want to read again and again.

wolf

SEASON 1: GRIMM WORLD

When Ava and J Bear open the Book of Stories, they’re swept into a magical world where all the Grimm fairy tales continue after “happily ever after.” Now a mysterious power is trying to reverse all happy endings. If they succeed, then the wolf will eat the Three Little Pigs, one of Cinderella’s stepsisters will marry the prince, Rumpelstiltskin will keep the baby, and Rapunzel will remain locked in her tower forever. And that’s exactly what will happen—unless you help Ava and J Bear save Grimm World before it’s too late!

We’re building Season 1. With your help, we can add even more amazing features!

13 NEW STORIES EVERY SEASON. Each story introduces new characters and new dangers—all building to an epic confrontation with a new (and unpredictable) villain.

RICHER 3D ENVIRONMENTS. Improved graphics, audio, and gameplay.

NEW GAMES. Dozens of new puzzles and quizzes that are fun and educational.

READ-ALONG NARRATION. This option, narrated by professional actors, can help guide emerging readers.
WORD EXCHANGE. Change words in the text and see those changes reflected in the story. Word Exchange encourages kids to play with language, improving vocabulary and comprehension at the same time.
STORY CHANGER. Change key elements of the story and those changes will ripple outward. Story Changer teaches kids to experiment, make decisions, and see the consequences of their actions.
AVATAR CREATOR. Kids can create characters to reflect who they are and insert their avatars right into the story.
ADD-YOUR-OWN AUDIO. Parents and kids can record their own narration, and even add music and sound effects.
COLOR SYSTEM. Kids can not only color anything in the game, but will be given challenges to find and color shapes and objects, earning “coins” as they learn.
READING LEVELS. Each story will be created at three levels: K-1, 2-3, and 4-5. Readers can begin where they are and, when they’re ready, replay games at different levels—discovering bonus surprises as they level up.
REWARD SYSTEMS. Kids earn “coins” as they move through the story. These coins can be used to buy new outfits, tools, bonus stories, games, and more.
PLAYER DASHBOARD. Readers can check their progress, review the stories they completed, organize their badges, and track the coins they’ve earned. We also plan to add a journal feature and a “Write Your Own Story” area.
PARENT AND TEACHER DASHBOARD. Access quiz scores, phonics skills, and reading levels. Explore vocabulary, curriculum plans, activities, fairy tale resources, and a lot more. We want to make it easy to watch and celebrate your reader’s progress!
Bonus materials. Illustrated picture eBooks, coloring books, digital flash cards, and other bonus learning materials will be added regularly.
