In a world of brilliant ideas, Books That Grow stands out from the rest.
Maybe you were a slow reader, or maybe your child is. Do you remember being given some remedial text with a kindergarten level story while the rest of the class read the cool book? They were all chatty about the story and you were stuck in the corner with Dick and Jane.
Or maybe you or your child was a very advanced reader, and your options were either to read way below your skill level so that you could be part of the class, or sit in a different corner and read Moby Dick. And Jane.
Borne Digital has an app for that. Books That Grow promises to tailor the content of a story to your child’s reading level. Your son or daughter can read the same text as the rest of the class, participate in the same discussions, and get excited about the same plot twists. What a great application of technology.
The company is in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign and they could use your help. Swing by and pledge a couple of bucks. Your inner child—the one sitting in the corner reading—will be glad you did.
