MaestroReading builds on its comprehensive reading program with Oxford's Junior Dictionary.

Just in time for their September 2007 launch, Montreal-based MaestroReading (http://www.maestroreading.com) has reached an agreement to offer the content of the Oxford Junior Dictionary in its flagship application, Leonardo's Reading Adventure. Partnering with the British reference giant provides added momentum as the Canadian company soars to new heights.

The child-friendly dictionary content adds a new dimension of accessibility to comprehensive solutions offered by this fast-growing company. Whether they're working alone or as part of a mixed-ability class room, elementary-school students benefit from the software's ability to adapt and match the individual needs and learning styles of each student. With the addition of Oxford's Junior Dictionary, students can also look up the words that they read with the click of a button.

With the spectrum of educational technologies available for use at home and in schools, MaestroReading distinguishes itself by empowering students with a personalized learning experience that, as their slogan reminds us, helps them "learn to love reading".

Developing confidence in their ability to tackle the challenges of reading is a major obstacle for struggling readers to overcome. Developing this confidence takes time spent on practice. Practice doesn't make perfect unless it is tailored to the child's individual needs, and enjoyable enough to maintain the child's interest. This is exactly what MaestroReading set out to accomplish when it began development three years ago, and what its customers are so excited about today.

MaestroReading's storybook about Leonardo da Vinci gives students a real-life example. At the age of forty, the Renaissance man began to teach himself Latin, the language of science. In his notebooks we find thousands of Latin words with their Italian translations. The benefits of learning the language motivated him to persevere, and contributed to his groundbreaking discoveries in fields ranging from astronomy and physics to hydraulics and anatomy. Through the story of this great polymath, MaestroReading strives to create this same excitement in every child.
