Speakaboos

Speakaboos is an award-winning subscription service that is changing the way children read globally.

Early childhood literacy is a multi-billion dollar, multi-lingual, multi-market opportunity yet to be transformed by new technologies and platforms. Speakaboos is meeting this challenge through an interactive storybook service designed by educators that is used by thousands of teachers and children worldwide and is proven to get kids reading more books - online and offline.

Speakaboos has partnered with leading publishers to deliver interactive educational storybooks to consumers across web, mobile and tablet platforms globally. We’ve been named “one of the great websites” by the American Library Association, received an A+ from Education World, are a Featured 5-star app in the App Store and have been described as an “impressive”, “indispensable” and “valuable” resource for literacy by Parenting, Kidscreen and Publisher’s Weekly. Speakaboos was chosen as a “Top Education Startup” by the Aspen Institute, the “Next Big Thing” by the Paley Center and a “Top Publishing Startup” by O’Reilly Media.

The Speakaboos team has created global children’s properties (Blue’s Clues, SuperWHY!), produced award-winning content catalogs (Nook Kids, Scholastic, Leapfrog,), ran marketing for top children’s apps and games (Cranium, Callaway) and lead development of global kids platforms (NickJr.com).
