How to get my child started with Homer?

Homer allows you to create a customized pathway for your child based and their interests and reading ability! Before your child can use Homer, you'll answer a few simple questions, so that we can customize your child's experience in Homer. Here's how to get started:

1. You will first fill out your child's name and birthdate, and can then assist your child with picking all of their unique interests. We suggest choosing at least 4 different interests, so your child has a lot of content to work with. We also encourage them to choose as many as they'd like!
