When summer comes, the last thing many students focus on is math, reading and academics. Decades’ worth of research tells us about summer learning loss: Students will, on average, lose between two to three months of grade-level equivalency in math and reading skills. This summer take advantage of the convenience of FarFaria, dubbed the “Brain Expander” app by Parenting Magazine. FarFaria encourages continuous on-the-go reading throughout the summer with fun, engaging and immersive stores. With five new books added every week, and over 300 beautifully illustrated fantasies, fables, and educational stories, FarFaria is sure to assist in the achievement of kid’s summer reading and book club goals.
No need for the bookshelf-back-and-forth, endless trips to the library or packing heavy books in the car, FarFaria has both online and offline access to favorite stories for reading when taking summer family vacation on a plane or on the road. Each story can be read aloud to your child with the READ-TO-ME function and comes complete with Reading Badges to help parents and children easily identify the reading level appropriate for their age group, 2 through 9 years old.
As a major advocate for children’s literacy and education, Ajay Godhwani, CEO and Co-Founder of Intuary and developer of FarFaria says “At FarFaria we aim to help children develop a passion for reading. This summer we are highly motivated to lend a hand in keeping kids absorbed and excited to continue reading throughout the school break”.
Ron Fairchild, executive director of the Johns Hopkins University Center for Summer Learning suggests, “The summer months are an excellent time for your child to fill in learning gaps or zoom ahead with enrichment activities like summer books to read in between play and television watching!” If your child is participating in a Summer Reading Journal or Book Club, you can also participate in FarFaria’s Summer Reading Rewards Contest by posting or emailing a favorite FarFaria Book title, picture of your child reading FarFaria or a list of completed book titles they’ve read on FarFaria’s Facebook page for a chance to win a FarFaria T-shirt.
