Customer Reviews

This review is a long time coming...

Let me start by saying that I am not only a mom, but a teacher who is part of a family of teachers. I originally downloaded this app 2 years ago on a whim. My oldest was 3 and she got a kick out of the basics. Last week she turned 5. She was spending more and more time on Homer and kept begging me to upgrade to the full version. I did as a birthday gift and she has spent envy allowable minute playing since.
She is really learning to read and the stories are engaging. She gets genuinely excited to check the pigeon post and earn thinking caps. She will share facts and jokes she learned on the app. Let's be honest, sometimes it can be a struggle to get kids to practice reading because they are not instantly good at it, but she keeps coming back and working and hhat to is the highlight for me.
I've brought a few things to the attention of customer service and they have been prompt, friendly, and seem genuinely committed to making this the best possible product for children. Do the free trial, and I would be shocked if you didn't think. it was worth your child's time.

Highly Recommended

My 5 year-old son is reading and comprehending comfortably at a fourth grade reading level. (Although that's just where I stopped testing. He can read just about anything!) I started him at age 3 with Homer. I am a certified elementary school teacher and am so impressed with the balance between phonics and language experience in this program. In addition to interactive games for phonics instruction, the program offers sight word recognition activities, as well as reading selections in various genres of music and literature. Also, children can record their own read-alouds to assess intonation, pacing and fluency. The interactive discovery lessons have beautiful photographs and sound bites that allow children to read and experience many areas of interest such as zoo animals, exercise, and the five senses. I haven't mentioned all the interactive goodies in Homer, but I would definitely recommend this program to reluctant young readers, struggling readers, or just any children who are ready for some reading fun! Thanks, Homer!

Fun App for Kids

My 5 yo enjoys this app and doesn't even realize he's learning! The instructions are clear and the way to navigate in each section is easy to understand. After showing him once, he can now go on his own. His favorite part is the songs and recording his own voice! The only complaint is with the Merry Go Round section. We use this app as part of homeschool and it is not easy for my son to navigate to make sure he has done each section. Overall though, it's an awesome app that requires very little parental involvement so kids can have you by their side or do it on their own. We love Homer!
