Customer Reviews

Great program, a perfect value

I strongly recommend every parent, teacher, tutor, and scholar to download this app for children. The content is very rich and appealing. My students do not get bored with this program. I recently became a certified homer teacher and I have told all of my colleagues about this wonderful program. Our library media assistant uses in within her groups too. My students reading levels have improved dramatically. Parents and teachers, you will not regret this one!

Excellent update!!

The creators of this app are truly remarkable. Both my kids love this app and they truly enjoy all of the little animations. The art here is fantastic and is really beautiful. I really hope to see more from this distinguished company, like hats, coloring books, pack packs, and water bottles. My kids love it!

Easy for kids to follow

This app is just what my 6 year old needs to help keep reading fun. IN addition to reading at home- she can do this when we running earns, she thinks it’s a game and anything that keeps her learning is good by me. Sincerely- A Mom That Care
