What people are saying

"I never thought I’d read this much. I used to love reading when I was a kid but in middle and high school I would barely pick up a book and if I did I wouldn’t finish it. I’m 20 now and I wish Literal was around when I was in school because it not only makes reading easy it makes reading fun."

"Fantastic, creative product. Makes reading much more engaging and interesting."

"Literal offers a completely new way to read. It is a game changer! As a new app, there is already great value and I can’t wait to keep reading and see where it goes. Your teens can finally use their phone for a good thing!"

Enable teachers to pair classic and contemporary texts

If you are teaching more contemporary titles, Literal has a library of diverse and inclusive narrative fiction and narrative non-fiction that you can use to pair with your assigned reading; especially helpful with D&I initiatives.
