About Our Reading Program

Founded in 2018 by a team of authors, artists, and parents with a dream to inspire more Dad’s to read with their kids!

We believe that more parents should read aloud to—and along with—their kids. Reading together strengthens the bond between parent and child as well as helps to advance your young reader’s vocabulary, word comprehension, and pronunciation.

We believe that new readers are initially drawn to picture books that stimulate their imagination and inspire interest in the subject. Kids love action and suspense just like adults do.  Our easy-to-read picture books with kid-friendly thrills are exactly what your child is looking for!

You Must Add This To Your Library

Bear Vs. Wolf: These leveled readers are both engaging and educational. They teach young readers about animal instincts and survival at a level that they can read and understand. The illustrations and font size are appropriate for whole group reading and independent reading time. Students always choose this book from the library. As an elementary school teacher, I highly recommend this book and author.

I bought several of these books for my son (4 years old) and husband to read together. My husband is in the army and he and our son enjoy their nightly readings whether he is home or deployed. The books are filled with action and characters you don’t see in many other children’s books. They both enjoy the books and time spent together immensely.

My son is heavily into ninjas and loves having a book that pits his favorite star against other warriors to show off the ninja’s skills. He talks about the books all of the time and has to read at least one of them every night!

Although the Call to Kings books are more “boy” topics, my daughter LOVES them! My wife and I are big fans of the LOTR series and are excited to have found an age-appropriate equivalent for her to enjoy.
