Millions of K-8 students are reading below grade level. We’re here to change that. 

We have a literacy crisis on our hands that shows no signs of slowing down – unless we do something drastically different.

According to the Nation’s Report Card,1 American students have not made significant progress in their reading abilities in the last 30 years. It’s clear that the status quo is not working. We need something revolutionary if we are going to make an impact on this crisis.

That’s where we come in. We’re Mrs. Wordsmith, and we’re dedicated to making literacy instruction effective and enjoyable. Teachers and parents shouldn’t have to choose between products that are either more engaging or more instructionally sound. That’s where we come in.

Our products have been carefully designed to deliver best practices in reading instruction by way of delightfully fun books, card games, and video games. The result? Effective literacy instruction that kids actually look forward to engaging in. Take a look at some of our offerings below.
