Unique story-based classroom curriculum
The innovative RedRover Readers curriculum enables educators to teach empathy while at the same time helping students make responsible decisions and become more aware of themselves and their communities. Teachers choose from pre-selected books and then facilitate discussions using our strategies, which also meet Common Core and social and emotional learning competencies.
Interactive, biligual app with built-in games
The Restricted Adventures of Raja app inspires kids to make the world a better place, while giving them a much-needed opportunity to practice skills related to emotional awareness, critical thinking and compassion.
Designed for ages 7 to 11, the app functions like an interactive graphic novel, incorporating pop-up questions and discussion topics into the story. In-app games help kids practice what they’ve learned.

Animal-themed children's magazine
RedRover recently acquired Kind News, an eight-page magazine that helps children understand and respect animals, which was originally founded by The Humane Society of the United States.
Kind News is filled with engaging articles and short feature stories that easily integrate into school curriculum. It’s currently published at three levels: Primary (grades K-2), Junior (grades 3-4) and Senior (grades 5-6). Beginning in February of 2018, it will be available in two levels: Kind News, Jr. (grades K-2) and Kind News (grades 3-6). Subscriptions are available for individual children or for classrooms.
Inside Our Curriculum
Educators choose from our list of high-quality children’s picture books and present one to a group of children ages 5 to 11, asking thoughtful questions before, during and after the reading.
Our highly engaging, open-ended discussion techniques and questions help students see and share different perspectives and become aware of themselves within a relationship.
After the reading and discussion, students take part in projects that reinforce concepts—such as trust, respect and friendship—that they discussed during the story. Our activities include science, art and role-play.
I have been teaching for 30 years, and I wish these strategies were something I knew earlier.Jody Bone, RedRover Readers Teacher, Golden Empire Elementary, Sacramento, CA
Just to let you know, the RedRover Readers program - and the literature it includes - has been so helpful this school year. One of my students lost her father in an accident and the stories have helped her open up and actually deal with her emotions.Anika Swisher, Teacher, West Sacramento, CA
What I love about the RedRover program is that at this age, students are so into animals, and the program maximizes teaching empathy to animals to teach empathy to people or vice versa.Theresa Molyneux, RedRover Readers Teacher, Oakridge Elementary School, Sacramento, CA
