Help children experience the joy of reading!
Sometimes motivating kids to read can be challenging for a variety of reasons. Never fear--Zirkel to the rescue! Zirkel makes reading fun. Instead of feeling like reading practice, Zirkel makes reading feel like a game. This reading adventure puts kids in the driver's seat as they decide what
to read and how much
to read at one time. Then, the game begins. The child rolls the die and moves forward to discover how
they get to read (out loud, in silence, together, and more). The suspense is fun and motivating. When the reading is done, they get to choose a card to help them start a conversation with you about what they read. If you have a timid reader, a beginner, or a child who simply seems to not enjoy reading, this game is for you! When kids ENJOY reading, they'll want to read MORE!
