Description from the packaging.

Real world learning that's real fun.

How to turn reading into a favorite pastime.
The educators who created Major League Reading started with a simple idea: the way to get kids interested in reading is to give them something interesting to read.

That's why the program's Sports Illustrated for Kids style articles are so important... and so interesting. They're packed with the inside scoop on all the pro teams and players.

Just as importantly, these articles are the basis for seven critical activities, all of which help kids sharpen reading skills.

Real Teams are a Hit.
The action begins when kids, playing against the computer or each other, pick their favorite pro teams, what kind of pitch to throw, what kind of hit to make. How well their team does depends on how well they complete reading activities.

Play at Different Levels.
Because the program's 1,500 articles are curriculum-aligned for each of four levels of difficulty, kids sharpen reading comprehension, spelling and vocabulary skills at a pace that's right for them.

Add New Articles and Activities.
No other program starts with 2,500 meticulously designed activities, then lets you add your own spelling and vocabulary lists, even all-new articles and questions on the World Series or All-Stars from the Pro Pack CD.

Control Your Team's Performance.
To improve their team's pitching, fielding, base running and batting skills, kids play arcade style games-within-the-game.
