The Abound App

Used by parents. Made for kids.

Building Lifelong Skills Without a Screen

Our mission is to provide parents the tools they need to raise strong readers without ever putting their children in front of a screen.

Through the Abound app, you’ll learn what skills to build at each stage of development and better understand your child’s strengths and weaknesses. You’ll even be armed with enough information to ask the right questions of teachers and pediatricians to advocate for what your child needs.

And here’s the bonus: our science-based conversation starters connect parents and kids because they provide ways to talk back-and-forth about engaging subjects.

Themes: It’s All About Building Knowledge

It’s easier to understand what we’re reading when we already know something about the topic. That’s why children need to learn about a variety of subjects. Abound’s app is designed around 2-week themes to help children build up knowledge and prepare them for all the reading they’ll do in the future.
