Play, Exploration, and Learning for Families, Toddlers, and K-6 Students Across Florida

Age of Learning has partnered with the Florida House of Representatives to support the New Worlds Reading Initiative.

Come read with us! All Florida families now have free access to quality literary resources through access to Reading IQ. Reading IQ is designed by experts with industry standard leveling to make it easy to find the perfect book from pre-school to 6th grade.

Studies show that creating a steady stream of new, age-appropriate books has been shown to nearly triple interest in reading within months and children who are read to at least three times a week by a family member are almost twice as likely to score in the top 25% in reading compared to children who are read to less than 3 times a week.

To access thousands of books:

  • Visit ReadingIQ.com/NewWorlds
  • Select “Create Your Free Account”
  • Email your email and create a password
  • Complete a brief survey
  • Add your child/ren to the account by entering their name and reading level
    • Your child can also take a Reading Level Assessment to get customized book selections
  • Start reading!

At the Y, we believe literacy is a key pillar in our youth development work.
