What are people saying about Dandelion Launchers iBooks

“Some electronic books are cluttered with distracting animations. They are fun to do, but it would probably be better to use a paper book to teach children to read. In contrast, the electronic additions in these Dandelion iBooks are directly helpful for teaching reading. The only extra activity is a brief animation for fun at the end of each story....  The Dandelion iBooks are carefully structured for the early stages of reading. They could easily be used with any systematic synthetic phonics programme, as the differences are irrelevant after only a few weeks. I recommend them for teachers, teaching assistants or parents who work with children at the early stages of reading.” Elizabeth Nonweiler, Independent Reading Consultant and Trainer, ‘Teach to Read’.
