Due to the unusual weather across the United States and the impact on many schools, we are extending the Great Reading Games end date to March 14, 2021. So far, over 50,000 students have read over 14 million pages! To inspire more students to read than ever before, we challenge everyone to get to 20 million pages read. Let's see those pages fly by and your success soar!

Pages fly by as stamina goes sky-high

Learning Ally's Great Reading Games is a 7-week event proven to help educators engage students and increase reading stamina. Struggling readers return to class each day excited to see how many pages they read and if their school has moved up on one of the 12 school leaderboards. Dyslexic and struggling readers have the motivation they need and the recognition they deserve for their reading achievements!

About Grant Patrizio

Grant was born in Marin County, California. He's loved playing video games and watching cartoons since he was a kid, and he knew that's where he wanted his life to go. One night in high school, he learned about voice acting thanks to a youtube video featuring an interview about Nathan Lane's work on “the lion king" (1994). As a voice actor, he's lent his skills to a variety of audiobooks, animated works, video games, and audio dramas! Learn more about Grant!
