Readyland Makes Reading Magical with Expanded Library of Books Kids Can Talk To

Thursday, March 2, 2023
The former teacher in me absolutely loves children's literature and I'll never pass up an opportunity to celebrate it. As I'm writing this, it's actually Read Across America Day, which is the perfect time for me to tell you about the latest book from Readyland. Readyland integrates "printed materials with smart speaker and voice assistant applications, transforming them into a new experience and evolving content into immersive, interactive audio experiences." If you're not sure what that means, read on and I'll tell you about the magic of Readyland books! This might be especially helpful if you have kids who are not crazy about reading (we call them 'reluctant readers.' Do you know one of those?).

It's time to kick off Read Across America Day, so Readyland is celebrating the joy of reading all month long with the launch of their newest book, A Trip to the Park with Rosie & Ricky.  Readyland is a library of printed books that work with an Alexa device or the free Alexa smartphone app to create an immersive, interactive reading experience. Kids can actually talk with the characters, respond to questions, play games, interact with music and become part of the story, making reading even more magical.

A Trip to the Park with Rosie & Ricky adds a new level of play and technology to the expanding Readyland line of books and products. A Trip to the Park with Rosie & Ricky is a highly-engaging book, inviting  kids to join Rosie and Ricky for a fun day exploring the park. Readers will unfold a new adventure on every page - play hide-and-seek, explore a giant hedge maze, build their own bandstand concert, play carnival games, make a snow cone and more. After a few visits to the park, readers can even choose their own path through the book.

With the latest reading evaluation technology, the innovative Reading Readiness feature allows early readers to read independently if they choose, while still having all the amazing interactions and surprises of a Readyland book experience. When they turn to the first page, kids will be asked if they want to read themselves, then receive prompts and encouragement based on their reading ability.  
“At Readyland, we’re on a mission to inspire kids to read more and have fun reading with books they can actually talk to," said Joshua Garrett, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer at Readyland. “We developed this new book to be as memorable as a day spent at the park, with fresh surprises and new adventures with each new visit!” 

Priced at $14.99 each and available on Amazon, Readyland books deliver endless hours of play, with a unique experience every time kids open the books. Previously released Readyland books include A Playdate with Rosie & Ricky, 3 Little Pigs and Jack and the Beanstalk, all available now on Amazon. 
Once you have a Readyland book, it’s easy to set up parental permissions for the Alexa skill and dive into a unique interactive reading experience. Parents can find more information at
