A word a day, with room to breathe

Little and often is the key to building a rich vocabulary that sticks. Learn together with your child at your own pace, or learn a word day, inserting breaks and days off whenever you like.

The Narrative Journey

Develop storytelling, communication and description skills

Designed for ages 6–13

Tell better stories and boost reading and writing age with the Narrative Journey. Children aged 6–13 need fundamental storytelling skills to thrive at school and in life, because vocabulary matters, whatever the subject. Illustrated by the Hollywood artists behind Madagascar, this word-learning that works.

Children learn better visually

We use laugh-out-loud illustrations to bring words to life, so that children fall in love with learning. All of our word journeys are easy to use, at home, on the go, or at school. Build a daily word-learning habit in minutes a day, and learn at your child’s own pace.

Backed by leading education experts, and curated based on research from Cambridge University, this is vocabulary building for the 21st century. No more boring word lists. No more cramming.

  • “The programme integrates words based on what children need to not only strengthen their vocabulary and reading skills but their writing skills as well. Integration is key.”

  • “It is 100% research-based and we have found that practising word pairs not only helps with remembering words, but increases fluency in writing as well.”
