Lucky to have found Homer!

My son is 7 and struggles with reading. We homeschool and so I have downloaded many apps and bought many products in order to help him read and to become interested in reading. Nothing had worked until we found Homer. He absolutely LOVES it! He loves being able to read the story and record his voice while doing it. He thinks it's the coolest thing. I never thought I would have to tell him..."one more story and then we have to move on". My son hated reading until Homer came into our lives. He lacked self confidence. It was very sad to see how disappointed he would get it. He would just give up. Now with Homer, he is gaining confidence with every story. Plus he loves the other activities on their too. Thank you Homer for coming up with this idea!!!

Best Preschool App Ever!

With 4 young kids I may have tried every educational app out there. Learn with Homer is by far the best educational app on the market. One of my daughters had learned to read at 4 years old just playing the app 20 minutes a day. I was shocked when I started doing phonics lessons at home with her and she already knew! Our whole family has loved the history lessons, folklore and folk songs! I love when we get to a history lesson (we homeschool) and my kids can add information they've learned from Homer. My kids are no longer preschool-kindergarten ages, but Homer continues to enrich our lives and education because of all my kids learned from it. I will continue to recommend it as the best app out there!

Amazing app!

My daughters teacher had told me that she needed to work on her reading so I decided to find an app instead of a book because she enjoys her iPad, so why not find something she enjoys being on while learning. I found a few apps but this one stood out to me. I love how they have her record her voice to sound out the words and identifying the sounds of the letter with the words. I recommended this to my sister who was happy because she has a child too that could use the extra assistance. Thanks for making such a child friendly app. My daughter literally gets on it first thing every morning before school!
