The world’s first virtual reading coach that works with real books

Other apps talk, Ello listens

Other reading apps either teach isolated skills such as letter recognition, or they read to your child. That’s not enough. With Ello, your child reads out loud, just like they would with their teachers or literacy specialists.

First-of-its-kind AI technology

Ello uses patent-pending speech recognition and adaptive learning technology to engage with your child while they develop critical reading skills.

Real books, quality screen time

When children make a personal connection with a real book, their natural, joyful curiosity flourishes. Ello elevates the book, instead of distracting your child from it.

Reading is the gateway to learning

Statistics every parent should know

Children are 2x more likely to drop out of high school if they are not a proficient reader by the end of 3rd grade.

Children are 4x more likely to remain a poor reader through 4th grade if they are behind in 1st grade.

Children are exposed to 78k more words each year when they read at least 1 book each day.

Reading skills have stalled during the pandemic. Reading fluency in the U.S. is roughly 30 percent behind what would be expected in a typical year.
