Chapter I
Down the Rabbit-Hole

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, “and what is the use of a book,” thought Alice “without pictures or conversations?”

So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.

There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!” (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.

Benefits of Immersive Reading


A fun and engaging reading experience


Narration sets the ideal pace of reading


Engaging ear and eye boosts understanding


Vocabulary, grammar and concepts are naturally assimilated

In 2018 Microsoft ran an experiment in immersive reading. Over just three months, students spending 30 minutes per week in immersive reading shot ahead of their peers by approximately a full academic year.

Microsoft Report

The average child at the 90th percentile reads almost two million words per year outside of school, more than 200 times more words than the child at the 10th percentile, who reads just 8,000 words outside of school during a year.

Adaptive Leveling

Leveled reading enables vocabulary retention

Mastering English is not easy — it's like climbing a mile-high ladder. However, we can optimize learning by having students read books at a targeted level of 1-3% new vocabulary. This allows for high comprehension, enjoyment and natural absorption of new words.

Activity Reporting

Parent & teacher friendly

Students select a book and read along with narration for a regular time period each day. A daily report showing reading progress is provided to parents and teachers.
