Learn more about StoryCaptain & our ‘Raising a Reader’ Guide.


Did you know? An infant’s language development & literacy are directly impacted by the # of words they’re exposed to.* 

At StoryCaptain, we’re on a mission to help parents raise little readers – because we believe that more readers leads to a world of more empathy, understanding, and connection. We know that raising a little reader can be quite a hectic journey, and that’s why we’re here to guide you the entire way.

I’m Mike, CEO & Founder of StoryCaptain, and we put together this science-backed ‘Raising a Reader’ Guide to empower families that are actively on this journey to inspire a love of reading and learning for their little ones. Why do I love to do this? 

My wife and I both moved to the US—me from Belarus when I was four and her from Canada—and our curiosity about people, cultures, and places led us to populate our bookshelves with new ideas, adventures, and travels. When I became a newly-minted dad, I simply had to bring my daughter along on that journey. And so StoryCaptain was born – my daughter was the captain, and I was her honorary first mate. 

To help inspire her love of reading, we trusted the science and now… we’re sharing everything that worked with you.
