“My five-year-old daughter loves this program. She has wanted to work on reading for some time, but hasn't really enjoyed other programs and at-home methods we have tried. In her first few days with Reading Eggs she made remarkable progress, and she "plays" it almost every day, mostly independently. She balances her time between the lessons, and using her rewards to customize her virtual house. The lessons use brief, arcade-style activities to reinforce the learning, and the child earns rewards for participation at every step. The rewards can be spent on in-game games or items for the child's avatar or cartoon house. The lessons seem to combine classic phonics with word recognition through repetition. It keeps her very engaged, and she asks for help when she feels challenged by a topic. I highly recommend this product to anyone with a raw beginner or an emerging reader, as long as the child can point and click with a mouse.” – Mary H.
“Reading Eggs has been the best purchase for our homeschool this year. Our 8year old dyslexic son loves and learns from this visually exciting program. It has helped his reading and also his writing as he has started his own "Reading Eggs" story book! He draws his own map, creates characters for each level and writes a story for each one. Amazing!” – Edyth N.
“We LOVE Reading Eggs! My son is 5 and had previously demonstrated only a little bit of interest in learning to read. He would get easily frustrated when we tried to read simple early reader books. Well, we gave Reading Eggs a try, and it has been a HUGE hit! He loves the games, he loves earning more eggs, he loves advancing to a new level it's been great! It provides just the right amount of challenge for him; he is learning SO much and yet the frustration level is very very low, which is perfect for my budding perfectionist. ;) His father and I are quite honestly shocked and amazed at how FAST he is learning to read, and he is surprising us all the time recognizing real words out and about in the real world. Not only that, but did I mention that my son LOVES to play? I've never once had to ask him to do it. Every time I remind him that it's there, he jumps on the opportunity. In fact, I often have to ask him to finish up, because he wants to keep playing and learning longer than I expect! In summary, we just LOVE the program, and I would recommend it highly to all my friends.” – Chessa
“My daughter is 4 years old and is learning to read. We purchased Reading Eggs to supplement her learning and have absolutely no regrets.At the beginning, the child takes a placement test, so they can begin at the correct level and not be bored or frustrated. I find this extremely helpful.Not only is Reading Eggs educational, but it is really fun. My child especially likes earning "eggs" as she completes tasks (these can be used to "purchase" items inside the game). The characters and songs are silly and fun, while the tasks are challenging and progressively more difficult.We have used several free and trial subscriptions to other phonics programs, but Reading Eggs has by far been our favorite. I would recommend it to any parent looking for a fun way to re-enforce phonics lessons.” – Flora, Co-op Member
