The SAG-AFTRA Foundation worked with Ripe to redesign this award-winning children’s literacy website, Storyline Online, which streams videos featuring celebrated actors reading children’s books alongside creatively produced illustrations. Readers include Viola Davis, Chris Pine, Lily Tomlin, Kevin Costner, Annette Bening, James Earl Jones, Betty White and dozens more. Ripe also created companion Apple iOS and Google Android hybrid apps.
Storyline Online receives over 100 million views annually from children all over the world.
Reading aloud to children has been shown to improve reading, writing and communication skills, logical thinking and concentration, and general academic aptitude, as well as inspire a lifelong love of reading. Teachers use Storyline Online in their classrooms, and doctors and nurses play Storyline Online in children’s hospitals.
The SAG-AFTRA Foundation is a Los Angeles, California-based nonprofit/humanity sector organization.
