Leading education innovator Age of Learning, Inc., announced today the addition of the HighlightsTM Reading Quest TM book series from Highlights to its ReadingIQTM digital library. Supporting the organizations’ shared goal of fostering a love of reading, the new partnership helps children build their literacy skills with books on the topics and themes they enjoy most.
Reading Quest is a series of 100 engaging books, each containing multiple stories focused around a fun and familiar theme. The series includes the most popular stories—handpicked by children themselves—from the pages of Highlights, the beloved magazine that has been engaging and delighting children since 1946.
As with all books in ReadingIQ’s library, the Reading Quest titles were carefully selected by Age of Learning’s literacy experts for their ability to help nurture reading skills. The books all have accompanying professionally-voiced audio for pre-readers and are leveled with Guided Reading and Lexile® measures to ensure that teachers and families can easily find the right stories for every child’s reading ability.
“Highlights’ commitment to sparking children’s love of reading with quality, engaging stories has made it a treasured brand for millions of parents and children over the years, and we couldn’t be more pleased to add its most popular stories to the ever-expanding ReadingIQ library,” said Doug Dohring, founder and CEO of Age of Learning.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Age of Learning, which shares our passion for supporting kids’ literacy skills and development,” said Andy Shafran, Vice President at Highlights. “It’s wonderful to see Reading Quest featured in ReadingIQ’s expertly crafted library and part of a safe, kid-friendly platform where children can explore books that both open their minds and bring them joy.”
ReadingIQ is available to teachers for use in classrooms at no cost and allows them to assign an entire reading level of books to each student to access at home without a subscription. Families can subscribe for at-home access to the entire ReadingIQ library for a low monthly or annual fee.
