Inspiring your child to read for joy

Our world-class reading platform empowers children aged 3 to 11 to read independently.

Reading for at least 10 minutes every day is great for your child’s happiness, wellbeing and, of course, for improving their reading and writing!

Words for Life

Your child is one step away from discovering the joy of reading for pleasure. Our extensive library has been expertly-curated to encourage the development of a passion and voracity for reading that will set your child up for a happier, more productive, and more successful life.

Our books span eight reading levels supported by a detailed framework to ensure that there is something to challenge and develop every young reader; from the book-shy child to the child who stays up all night reading under the covers.

Pickatale is here to support your child in becoming the confident, engaged and enthusiastic independent reader they are destined to be.
