What's Happening at HAPPY Reading?
We are over the rainbow with excitement for our literacy colleagues at Reading Rainbow, as they fund a monumental Kickstarter campaign.
Have you seen the story on the evening news (and everywhere else)? Please give them your support and read what LeVar Burton shared with HAPPY Reading about his early, very personal connections with books and reading. Support Rainbow on Kickstarter.

HAPPY Reading is for you. With engaging content and customized consulting services, HAPPY Reading equips those who teach, those who serve, and those who learn.
At HAPPY Reading, we love books. They hold promise and power within their pages. But it takes both knowledge and wisdom to create a reading culture.
HAPPY Reading helps learners discover the reader within by thinking outside the book.
HAPPY Reading is all about best practices in literacy education. We are also about improving outcomes for all learners through increasingly intelligent and imaginative approaches to instruction. For example, our downloadable instructional materials are highly efficient… combining content knowledge, standards, word study, leveled reading and more into short, lively, fun-to-read poems and reader’s theater scripts. Nowhere else can you find this powerful and efficient combination in one place.
HAPPY Reading is for parents, classroom teachers, resource specialists, home school instructors, academic administrators, program directors, library professionals, counselors, tutors, volunteers, community leaders, adult learners and literacy enthusiasts who are dedicated, informed and innovative. For you, we provide smart articles, compelling interviews, top-notch read-aloud recommendations and evidence-based instructional materials that are diverse, downloadable and FUN… to nourish your budding literacy learners, to help them discover that they love reading… and that HAPPILY, books are for them. We add new content all the time.
We invite you to join our community if you believe as we do: that successful reading, writing, speaking and listening are possible for virtually everyone… and that learning is a lifelong gift to cherish and to share. What are the newest offerings from HAPPY?
