Bookbot is a book reading app for practicing readers. Use this kids learning app to access a virtual reading assistant that will listen to your child read out loud, helping them as they go along. Also included in the app is a library of specially written books that will guide your child through their very own reading journey.

Bookbot is an English learning app with a difference: it actually listens to your child as they learn to read, highlighting the words and stopping when they make a mistake. Readers can either have another go at reading the word correctly or listen to the word being read by Bookbot before they continue.

Bookbot has been developed by a team passionate about creating the best learn to read app that is based on scientifically proven techniques. Using a phonics approach endorsed by numerous reading experts, Bookbot will develop your child’s reading confidence at their pace. Bookbot was inspired by children who need a dyslexia app, but it works for everyone.

‘Just right’ reading levels - Individually selected books based on your child’s current reading ability - your child can enjoy success whilst stretching them just enough.

Guided progress - The line your child is reading is highlighted as they speak, encouraging focus and fluency. It’s like having your finger following their reading.

Immediate feedback - Words are de-emphasised as your child reads them correctly - they get an instant sense of confidence and achievement.

No more guessing - Words that are Incorrectly read are identified and spoken by Bookbot before your child can continue reading.

Easy on the eye - specially chosen fonts, careful use of spacing and page colours all make the reading experience as easy as possible.

I pre-ordered

Do not download this app. I'm having the same exact issue as Tjformore but I pre-ordered it and paid for the lifetime subscription. I’ve sent several emails but have not been helped. It stays on the logging in screen for a very long time and then it says that I do not have access. I’ve reset my password and it still doesn’t work. At this point I just want a refund.

Doesn’t work

It’s a great concept and I’ve been waiting for this app to become available. But it doesn’t work. I have tried creating an account and was not able to with Facebook, email or google. I really wanted this app to work so my son could try it. I tried app support and it just redirects me to Facebook. Please fix this app!!
