Shown to Nearly Double Reading Scores

“One of the most comprehensive apps for teaching reading.”

Set the Path for Future Learning:

A child’s reading level by 3rd grade is the single biggest predictor of future success.
Sadly, 2 out of 3 children don’t read proficiently by 4th grade.
Children who can't read fall behind, are 4x more likely to drop out of school, earn less money in the future, and miss opportunities to grow in other subjects.
Homer, the #1 Learn-to-Read Program, is the most reliable and effective program for teaching your child to read.
Imagine the joy of watching your child read his first book all on his own!
“Now, when people ask me for a reading app for young kids, this will be my recommendation.”

    Stephanie Dua wanted to cultivate a love of reading in her daughter.

    Raised on a small walnut farm in rural California, Stephanie put herself through Harvard and became a leading education expert. With access to the country's top literacy experts and all the best research on learning to read, Stephanie thought it would be easy to teach her own daughter to read.

    But none of the programs she found nurtured her daughter's love of reading. None of them were easy to use.

    So Stephanie brought together the most respected education experts and relied on the best research.

    Together, they created Homer, the most reliable and effective Learn-to-Read Program available.
