The app has been launched in time for the summer and the academy believes that it offers young learners the ideal summer reading program. WholeReader combines the best of traditional books and digital audiobooks, meticulously aligning hundreds of classic and modern novels with real human narration.

The launch coincides with the latest research from Healthline, which indicates that regular reading is essential to the development of a child’s cognitive skills, language ability, attention span, creativity, and emotional intelligence.
However, when school ends for the summer, many kids across the country regrettably stop reading. As a recent study from the South Central Library System showcased, summer reading is just as, if not more, essential than reading during the school term. Their researchers concluded that routine summer reading is one of the biggest factors that makes for a successful and high-achieving student.
As such, Firm Foundation Academy is proud to be launching WholeReader. This interactive, user-friendly, and engaging app hosts a vast array of popular literature tailored to every grade range from K-12.
Their intuitive app also utilizes adaptive leveling to track a reader’s vocabulary level and comprehension abilities. Based on this data, it then selects appropriate reading material that is pitched ever so slightly above the reader’s standard, so as to introduce a manageable 3-4% of new words in each novel or text.
The developers believe that the app’s immersive combination of sight and sound provides the optimal conditions under which children can enrich their lexicon and improve their reading fluency.
For busy parents who are working throughout the summer vacation period, WholeReader also includes a sophisticated activity reporting and parental monitoring feature.
The app is built around 45-minute intervals. Firm Foundation Academy believes that with dedicated daily attention to reading, a child will improve in all facets of their schooling. Unlike other assignments that students may have for the summer, the goal of the app is that it is also a fun, engaging, and easy way for children to learn and excel.
WholeReader is an immersive reading app that is suitable for children of all ages. The app and its tailored reading programs are designed to improve a child’s educational outcomes and, therefore, their future.
A spokesperson for the app developers said, “Your child is smarter than you could possibly know, but literacy is not a switch you flip, it is a decade-long ladder to climb. Start the lifetime habit of reading today, with a subscription to WholeReader and complete access to a thousand hours of richly narrated books.”
