About & Pics


Learn to Read from the starfall.com website is now a FREE app!

The Starfall Learn to Read FREE app is made possible by the member supporters of Starfall.com, a publicly supported nonprofit. The activities at Starfall.com motivate through exploration, positive reinforcement, and play.

Since 2002 Children around the world have learned to read with Zac the Rat — and your child will too! Each numbered section features a vowel sound and its related spelling. Your child will hear, touch, read and eventually master this sound-spelling through a variety of engaging activities, movies, and songs. Encourage your child to play and explore! Your child will come to recognize the relationship between spoken and written language while having fun learning to read. This app is excellent for emerging readers and English language learners.

 Free in iOS App Store
