“It's important to boost the knowledge kids gain at school with at-home learning, and the Learn to Read Kids Club is a fun, inventive way to keep up that momentum.”

Grandmother of Trevor and Kate
“My elder son spent the first 7 years of his life in China, where we ordered from CTP…via the Internet, back in the late 1990s. CTP and a few others were the only English reading materials I could get my hands on and I am grateful. Hubert (12), Gilbert (8) and I still have fun talking about the Cat and Dog books, which are still in our home library.”

"I really love the Learn to Read books for my daughter who is in 1st Grade and son who is in PreK. My daughter is fascinated by anything historical so the Social Studies books are perfect for her. They keep her interest (since there isn’t much social studies instruction in school) and are at her reading level. We all love Cat and Dog!! We crack up laughing when we read about Cat’s silly antics. My personal favorite book is I Can’t Sleep. There’s this cute little frog in all the pictures who sneaks around the boy’s room doing crazy stuff and he doesn’t even know."

"My six-year-old son started reading CTP's Learn to Read books as a kindergartener. Now, as a first grader, he is reading above grade level and his teacher is thrilled with his progress. I believe a strong foundation in reading leads to educational success in all areas and I am so pleased to have found the Learn to Read series. Additionally, my son reads the Learn to Read books to my three-year-old daughter. She'll be learning to read in no time!"

“The workbooks are so colorful and inviting, my son didn't even feel like he was doing work! The parent guide gives great tips on how to provide your child with a more hands-on experience.”

“I find the books very interesting and motivating for my daughter. She loves the stories, colorful workbooks, and motivational rewards sticker chart. I like the wonderful extension activities included in the parent guide.” ~Parent
"I purchased 48 books from the Learn to Read series. I sent them home throughout the year to give children and their families an extra opportunity to read to/with their children and complete the accompanying activities/journals. The children shared their completed journal entry or hands-on activity with the class. Every student in the class far exceeded the benchmark as measured by the instrument Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills. I have since purchased multiple copies of each title to continue the program with next year's class."
"I have used your Learn to Read books for many years in my classroom. My 1st Graders love the books because they are interesting (as opposed to decodable or phonics readers) and funny! They don't have to struggle with these books. The kids are motivated to read, and, when they find they can read the books, they want to read them over and over. I've found that the Learn to Read books help my students become very strong readers in 1st grade. The Learn to Read books help build skills and fluency which gives students the necessary practice to move into 2nd grade reading."

“I really like the variety of products that come with this set. It is almost a fool-proof way to encourage children to learn to read! I like the parent guide, especially the ‘Discuss and Practice’ as well as the ‘Extend’ section. I also like that the books are very colorful and keep kids engaged.” ~Teacher
“This product is very interesting for my students. They didn't want to put the books or workbooks down!” ~Teacher
“This product teaches kids how to read and about math, phonics, science, and social studies concepts, and it helps early readers become more confident in their ability to read and learn new words.” ~Teacher
“I would recommend this product to parents. It is a very motivating at-home tool that gets kids to read. This product helps parents, as well as children, build a foundation for early reading. I love the support features that are included!” ~Teacher
“I would absolutely recommend this series to parents of children ages 5–8, depending on their instructional level. These books could also be used for ESOL children just learning English.” ~Teacher
From the Publisher
“The Learn to Read series was a phenomenal success and the books are still selling today, 16 years after their debut. They are valuable, timeless books that children enjoy reading today, just as much as they did when they were first released 16 years ago.”
–Rozanne Lanczak Williams
Author Learn to Read Series
“The strength of the Learn to Read books is that children do feel successful when reading the series and we all know that success is followed by more success. Rozanne not only has an understanding of how children learn, but she has a great sense of humor, which she incorporated in the series.”
