Which Title do I choose?

Children who are readers are more likely to learn independently, have vivid imaginations, write fluently and experience better emotional health, self-confidence and job success. Use BRAINtastic! Reading Success to help your child unlock life’s treasures!
Not all kids have the same success in learning to read.
That’s why there’s a BRAINtastic! Reading Success title that’s just right for each child,

Beginning Reader!

Start your child on their reading journey with titles ONE and TWO and let them progress through the carefully structured, step-by-step activities.

Emerging Reader!

Fill in any skill gaps and then develop and broaden their reading skills. Start at titles ONE or TWO and work through the titles to their level.

Struggling Reader!

Start at title ONE and work through the activities in order. Struggling readers often have specific learning gaps and it is vital that these are addressed before progressing to titles TWO, THREE and FOUR.

Power Reader!

Make the most of your children’s reading talent by challenging and stimulating them with a diverse range of reading material. Choose a title above their age. For older children, titles FIVE and SIX will enrich their reading lives!
