Knowonder Publishing brings you the first book in a series of monthly books that provides you with a new story for every single day of every single month! That’s right. A new story, every single day.

Enjoy hours of reading fun with your child. Explore new worlds, go on adventures together, learn new words and concepts and more! These stories will not only give you and your child a wonderful opportunity to spend time together, they will also lay the foundation for your child to become a successful reader, student and grown-up.

The Research

Reading to, and with, your children each day is the most important thing you can do for them, both socially and economically. Studies show that literacy is the foundation of all learning. In fact, 98% of education spending happens AFTER the most formative years in a child’s life. (see the research) So, the sooner you start, the better!


The book is formatted in a large font (11 or 12 pt.) to make it easier to read for beginning readers.

It also features a 2-column layout. This makes it easier for beginning readers to read the stories without losing their place.

(note: most of the stories are about a 3rd grade reading level, however, they are first-and-foremost “read-aloud” stories. Learn more about why that is such a key factor of the knowonder! Literacy Program)


Kids can collect four StoryGame collector-cards in each volume. These cards are a great way to promote creative storytelling, imagination, and writing in your children, no matter what age they are! Learn more about the StoryGame.

This books also contains a word scrambles, a wordsearch and crossword puzzle, a great maze, and other fun games.
