Would you have guessed “vocabulary”? Statistically, boys show less enthusiasm for learning new words than girls do–but Jake is a proud exception to the rule. We predict many years of happy reading for this young learner!
Paige loves Practickle because…
Why do some three- to seven-year-olds think reading is boring? Usually, it’s because they don’t fully understand what they are reading on a deep level. Paige loves working on her reading comprehension skills, because it makes stories more fun!
Adults love Practickle too…
Parents of reluctant readers often ask me what they can do at home, and my response is always to do more reading with their child. This is not as easy as it sounds.
Many children approaching adolescence have already accepted themselves as "bad-readers", and cannot be inspired to break out-of this rut without a teacher's help. Early home intervention with preschool/kindergarten aged children can have profound results on how kids interact with- text, and how they perceive themselves as readers.
This can set a student up for a lifetime of successful learning and growth. Practickle.com is a tool for parents to give children an ex-cellent start on the road to literacy. There is very little that young children find more fun then spending time with Mom and Dad, and when reading is fun, school is easy.
As a mom of three young children, I appreciate the fantastic book selections and the strengthening of our reading comprehension skills. Now that our oldest child is reading well, this is the perfect opportunity for him to read to his younger sisters while I refer to Practickle on our family iPad. Thank you for offering a fun program that benefits our children’s academic success and their love of books!

I believe in Practickle’s mission and program for so many reasons. As a mom to preschool children, I am always looking for educational lessons we can do together which bring in an element of fun.
This program does just that. It is a chance for us to sit down together a few times a week and spend quality time reading- not just getting through the pages like we usually do. The new techniques I am applying to our story times has making a difference with the kids literacy skills
