Why reading matters

Boosts Literacy

The increased exposure to words through reading helps children develop better reading skills, comprehension, and overall literacy. This often translates into better performance in school.

Improves skills

Regular reading stimulates cognitive development, including skills such as text comprehension, listening, memory, and critical thinking. It also helps children understand different concepts and ideas.

Leads to success

The benefits of being read to as a child extend beyond early childhood. Children who are exposed to more words early on are more likely to develop a love for reading, which can lead to lifelong learning and success.

How Readmio works

Pick a story

Find a story that appeals, or let your child select one based on the illustrations.  If you like, you can choose a category and pick from a filtered assortment of relevant stories.

Download and open it

A short description of the story is provided, along with some suggested topics for discussion afterwards. You do not need to be connected to the internet to read a downloaded story.

Start reading aloud

The app will follow along as you read, automatically adding sounds and music when you get to the bold text.

Every fairy tale is an opportunity

Every story provides an opportunity to grow

Reading a story-a-day to every child in the world, that is our dream. We believe that reading to children hugely benefits their emotional and mental development. Those minutes of undivided attention every day can make so much difference.

Readmio stories are short and each of them has a theme or carries a message. This offers a nice parenting opportunity, especially if you engage in a discussion after reading. Your voice, together with the intermittent sounds, keeps your child engaged, contributing to their aural acuity and sense of imagination.

Our stories may not change the world, but the children that we read them to just might.

Our principles

Purposeful storytelling

We treat every story as an interface to specific learning. Some teach us about science, others lend important moral lessons or relaxation techniques. Every story has a purpose.

Made with experts

To uncover the hidden potential of storytelling, we work with child psychologists, educators and other specialists in the field of child development.

We value your privacy

Family time must remain private. Our voice recognition system operates on the device only — we do not store or collect any personal data.

Our happy parents

Excellent stories and illustrations. The sound effects are real and dramatic and kids love them.

Frequently asked questions

Why are there no illustrations inside stories?

We deliberately chose to focus on the sense of hearing. Our world has become overly visual. Children today are exposed to too much visual stimuli, often quite aggressive. That leaves little space for imagination and awareness. We wanted you to be the center of the child's attention. Your voice acting and facial expressions are what shall open the imagination in your little one's mind.

Is it free to use the app? How much does it cost?

Readmio comes with a set of a few free stories we call an Explorer set. It’s a hand-picked list of tales from various categories. You can try out all the features, like audio recordings or printing using these stories. You can also browse all of the categories and read story descriptions that include plot and parenting topics. If you like the experience, you can subscribe to unlock the full library of over 300 stories. We add more stories every week.

Aren’t paper books better?

We promote reading to children in any form. We love beautiful picture books and the smell of paper. Readmio is not a replacement for books, it’s an addition. We focus on the sense of hearing. Voice acting and sound effects create a different experience leading hopefully to even more stories being read to our kids. We encourage you to read our stories facing the child. Your facial expressions can help the child better understand the embedded emotions.

What else is included in Readmio app?

The app offers a diverse range of additional materials to complement the reading experience. These include audio stories for those who prefer listening, and activity sheets including quizzes, colouring sheets and other thematic exercises to reinforce learning, deepen engagement and stimulate creativity.
