What is SquareTales?

  • SquareTales delivers 5 PRINT books + 5 in-app DIGITAL book toolkits each month to help your child learn to read.
  • In the digital books, your child learns to blend letters with our proprietary phonics engine. Then it's time to take off the “training wheels" and watch your child read the print books!
  • Each month, the books and digital toolkits increase in complexity, following a sequence of phonological awareness to build confident and independent readers.
  • We're so confident you will be pleased with your child's reading progress or your money back. No questions asked.
