Growing up, I always loved reading books. From the Magic Treehouse series to The Babysitters Club to The Boxcar Children, I always had a book in my hand. Back then, I wasn’t reading from a tablet and didn’t even have a smartphone in sight to be able to read from.
However, now you can use technology to your advantage in your homeschool and allow your kids to learn to read through reading apps. Here are 12 of the best reading apps for kids of all ages.
