“Okay—So at what age should we start?”

Reading starts at birth—because the sound of our language is where it all begins.
Beginning with sounds—then adding in the mastery of a myriad of wonderful pre-reading skills—your very young child can actually practice the foundational skills of reading right now.
When you start with games and fun that teach the concepts and sub-skills of reading early on, your child is already learning what’s needed to read well. Short play and a game-based, relevant introduction to letters make learning to read easy.

Beat The Statistics
NOW is the time to learn to read the right way—because the greatest amount of brain growth occurs in your child between birth and age five, and your child’s mind is open and joyful toward learning in a way that it will never be, later on. In fact, by age three, roughly 85% of the brain’s core structure is formed—so mastering pre-reading/literacy skills right now can be critical to your child’s success.1
But that’s not all. If your child learns to read like most other kids, the statistics are stacked against your child.
Two out of three 3rd graders in the US aren’t reading at grade level.2 That’s a serious statistic—one that can be a serious problem for your child’s future.
You don’t want your child to be a statistic.

Make It Easy
True North Reading makes reading easy for little ones.
- It’s short: We break ideas down into their smallest parts—So all can “get it”—and no one fails.
- It’s fun: We play with ideas—So learning is filled with excitement and laughter.* It’s hands-on: We use our hands, bodies, eyes, ears, and even smell and taste—All the senses, so it’s enjoyable, entertaining, satisfying, and highly memorable learning.
- It’s play-based: Never pushed, always prompted—Learning is child-centered.
- It’s literacy based: Immersed in story and word-play—We grow our child’s vocabulary and love of language, so that reading in older years is trouble-free, comprehension (remembering what was read) is a breeze, and the larger-picture thinking of reading is mastered in all of schooling.
- It’s joy-filled: We let the child lead, for joyful emotions—So the child is drawn to reading.
When we make learning easy, the child’s learning never stumbles—and that momentum carries into a full love of (and skill with) reading well.
Make It Fun
Here at True North Reading, all of your young child’s learning is joyfully wrapped in play—because especially for the young child, play and learning aren’t separate—they’re intertwined.1
Here, we believe that all great learning involves the joy of play. When your little one learns to read, it’s not a chore; it’s a delight!

If you want your little one to become a confident reader, then now’s the time to begin.
When you or I struggle at any task, we don’t enjoy what we’re doing. It’s no fun.
But when we are competent at the task—when we can do it, and do it well (whatever “it” is)—then we tend to love what we do. That’s because when we’re good at something (and it’s not “too hard”), it’s more fun.
We’re good at it. We enjoy being good at it. And we’re more confident because we’re good at it.
Competence builds confidence.

Instill a Love of Reading
Most importantly—you want your child to love to read.
Because when your child loves reading, he or she loves to keep going with learning, to read well. Your child gets better at it. He or she enjoys it… learning more, growing more, having more opportunities for achievement, and (because the positive results snowball and multiply together) your child enjoys more success—in schooling and in life.
With research-based methods of learning that are fun for your little one, your toddler and preschooler can…
- Learn phonemes (sounds)
- Enjoy visual play with Sound Pictures (letters’ combinations)
- Grow vocabulary through games and mapping1
- Use music and rhythm, texture and shape, and movement, and more—tied to reading concepts, to make reading a happy place of learning
- Learn with confidence and for highest memory of all that’s introduced
- Make the pre-reading pathways strong—and with ease, start to read during the preschool years
Here, we come alongside you to help your child love to read—and learn to read in an easy, fun, relaxed, and joyful place that can give your child a lifelong joy of reading.

Because reading is so important, I wanted to make sure that my daughter started out reading right. Thank you so much—in four months’ time, she went from knowing nothing to reading sentences—and enjoying reading—she thinks reading is fun! I recommend True North Reading: The Complete Mastery Reading & Spelling Program to anyone who wants to start his or her child out right.— Beth, elementary school counselor and mom to a five-year-old daughter
I was a speech-language pathologist before homeschooling my kids (where I specialized in pediatrics) and I love the multisensory approach of your program. The ideas and suggestions for activities in between lessons are exactly what I would have asked parents of my clients do try to when I was in practice as a SLP! It is truly the best program to teach reading that I have come across in my 10+ years of homeschooling.— J. Peterson
I started out with my four-year-old daughter with True North Reading: The Complete Mastery Reading & Spelling program—and in under six months, she tested at a grade 2.5 level of reading! Amazing!— Mom to Odessa, in Kalamazoo, Michigan
After just his first year in school, my son didn’t want to read, and his teacher said that he needed help. Now—just two months later—Tristan is happy and smiling and reading words, and he can figure new words out easily. I’ve already told my friends about this program, because it changed our whole outlook on reading for us.— Michelle, mom to Tristan, age 6
