Build confident fluent readers while the world is on hold

Would you trust Albert Einstein with your children’s learning? Who wouldn’t? Well, it is he who said “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” And this sounds like great a plan during these testing times when everyone is confined to their homes, finding it rather chaotic to engage kids in exercises that are not only fun but also beneficial.

While reading to your kids is a great way to bond, the better thing to do is to get them to read. Reading is a magical portal which lets people, especially young children, discover new realities. It is also a practically beneficial and a fundamental activity for children’s development. In today’s lockdown world, words have become more powerful than ever. That’s how everyone’s getting their work done while under the lockdown – chatting, emailing, calling, texting, connecting digitally – everything requires an ability to read and understand words. And the benefits of reading go far beyond, particularly when the habit is inculcated at a young age.


Improvement in concentration: When a child focuses on stories regularly, he/she develops a habit to concentrate on other forms of media presented to them.

Improvement in memory: Kids as young as 2 years of age try to remember all the characters, backgrounds, and other associations of the stories they read. The practice of reading a book helps boost their memory.

Discover more than they see: Reading teaches children about different people, places, events, ideas, and beliefs outside of their personal experiences.

Exercising the brain: When you encourage your child to read more, you help them improve their comprehension and vocabulary.

Encouraging critical thinking skills: While reading, children tend to predict what’s going to happen ahead in the story, challenging their brain to think of many possibilities. This boosts their comprehension and analytical thinking skills.


Now you know how important reading is for your kids. Don’t allow this lockdown to affect your child’s education and progress. In fact, in this time of social distancing, a host of storytellers and children’s book creators are using technology to bring the magic of stories into your homes. One great way to engage your kids is the
SquareTales Reading App. This is not just an app but a system of learning that can help your child become an independent reader and learner.

In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, fractious children — and parents — are more home-bound than they are used to. Parents are feeling the pressure in having to engage their children in meaningful activities while balancing work, leaving them with very little ‘me time.’ So, the creators of the
SquareTales Reading App took it upon themselves to provide a solution. They introspected, what if children learnt to enjoy reading? Can we make them feel that reading is play? Wouldn’t they end up exploring & picking up the subjects that interest them? Won’t they get deeper into it as they progress in their learning journey?

The answer lay in gamification – to make reading feel like play so that children do not even realise that they are learning to read. The app allows parents to play along with their kids, celebrate their little wins, and bond with them.

The SquareTales Reading App is designed by a team of psychologists, educators, technologists and neuroscientists from the USA and India. They understood that most kids are struggling with reading effectively and decided to build a new system of learning from scratch, based on cutting edge research.


The simplicity of
the SquareTales Reading App was achieved after more than 130 experts dedicated all their time and effort to build this system of learning. You will be able to trace significant progress in your child’s reading ability within 5 books read across 5 weeks. The app makers have combined ancient learning techniques with artificial intelligence and technology so that your child needs to play just for 15 minutes a day and become good at reading. You can search for
the SquareTales Reading App on the Play Store or the App Store and try it for free.
