How Silas Fell in Love With Reading

(Note: The links in this post are affiliate links, and we will be compensated when you make a purchase by clicking through our links. Read our .)

Want to encourage your kids to love reading? is a brand-new online digital library for kids that offers thousands of books for all reading levels.

When they ed me about possibly posting about them (and giving you all the opportunity to !), I got all excited because I wondered if this might be perfect for Silas.

Those of you who have followed along here for awhile know that Silas struggled to learn to read. It ended up taking him three years of hard work to master beginning reading. He worked so diligently and we’ve been so proud of how far he’s come and how determined and diligent he’s been.

Because of the struggle involved, though, he would only read when he had to. If it was an assignment, he would read a chapter in a book, but he never would read on his own… just for fun.

However, that all changed with ! I showed him the program to see what he thought about it and he was HOOKED from the get-go!

I have never seen this boy excited about reading… but he was! (And maybe it was also the fact that I said he could use the iPad to read, too — a special privilege at our house!)

He almost all by himself and figured out how it worked. Then, he started reading — and he just kept reading and reading and reading!

In the last 6 weeks, he has logged close to 600 minutes of reading on … all on his own. And did I mention this was with almost zero coaxing or encouragement from me?

That might not seem very impressive to you if you have a child who reads a big chapter book every day, but this was MASSIVE for Silas.

It is 100% thanks to and how they make reading so fun and offer so many great books at all reading levels with just a click of a button!

Silas LOVES that tracks your time read, where you left off in a book, and all of the books you have read. He also loves that there are so many different genres and fun titles to choose from.

He has proudly come to me multiple times to show me all of the books he has read. They are all listed on his shelf and it makes my heart utterly thrilled to see my boy falling in love with reading!

I don’t worry about the level of book he is reading since it’s more important to me that he is loving reading (and I know he does plenty of harder reading with his school assignments and the chapter books they are reading through!)

For those who would like more details on , here is what you have access to when you sign up:

I also love that it’s so portable — he can read on the iPad anywhere. He took it with us on our trip to Kansas for Christmas and was able to get in lots of reading while we were traveling. In addition, this is a great option for families who constantly have late fees if you use the library. 🙂

If you want to try out , you can get one month access completely FREE. Just and you’ll .

After the first month is up, if you decide to continue your subscription, it’s just $4.99 per month!

Note: After your free trial is up, you’ll be automatically charged at the regular monthly price of $4.99 per month. If you no longer wish to continue, be sure to cancel before your free trial is up.
