Video program that entices kids to read

by

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A company that is developing a software program that will encourage kids to read will bring it to Kalamazoo today for a workout.

The software company Evanced Solutions will give a group of Kalamazoo children free access to the game called “Wandoo Planet”.

Spokesperson Lindsay Hill says the more it’s used, the more it learns.

It has an algorithm that works like Netflix to suggest other titles its clients might be interested in reading.

They will be at the Washington Square Library at 4:30 Tuesday afternoon  to show kids how to play it and use it to find books that are of interest to them.
