Learning should be fun

for ALL kids.

We’ll show you how.

(No complicated curriculum necessary.)

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.

Rolling Prairie Readers exists to see whole families embrace a lifestyle of joyful discovery together.
