Every child is unique.

Let’s help them learn THEIR way!

Welcome to Rolling Prairie Readers!

Our mission is to
create a community of lifelong learners
where parents inspire
and empower their children
to follow their passions
and use their unique gifts
to make the world a better place.

We are passionate about:

  • learning through play,
  • making the most of family time,
  • and reading good books!

If you want to connect with your kids through play and make learning FUN at home, this is the place to be! (Everything is FREE.)

Here’s what you’ll find as our library grows:

  • short video trainings
  • reading logs & book lists
  • printable checklists & guides
  • FUN learning ideas for kiddos ages 2-6

Let’s change the education system from the outside in.

Let’s empower our children to grow up knowing they are special and unique–that they have their own trail to blaze.
