"Guess who just read her first book on your app?!!! Our four-year-old (not even four and a half yet) is reading! Thanks for making such an awesome app!!!"

"My four-year-old loves playing on the app and will beg me each day to let her do lessons on it. Through the fun and engaging atmosphere of the app, she quickly learned the letter sounds and started putting them together to form words. And we only used the app for a month before she read her first book on it! The app has made learning to read fun and enjoyable. We have loved it!"

Avatars Are Lacking; Offer More Diverse Ones

Ok, I read a review of this app from a fellow teacher and had to get it for my son. The steep price is an investment that I’m happy to make. However, I’m already having misgivings b/c of the avatars.

As a teacher I am versed in the potential efficacy of digital educational games. Since digital games are a form of embodied learning, it is rational (and good economic sense) to have the audience identify with game avatars as this makes the learning process more “realistic”.

At this point, my son will not identify with the male avatar and will not say “that’s me!” when he views that avatar. This sustained gap between the digital world of the game and his physical self (as a dark-skinned Black boy) will prevent him from “buying into” the game. The game would fail at “hooking him” and its potential efficacy will be compromised.

I want K, my son, to immerse himself in the game to the point that he becomes intrinsically motivated to finish ALL the levels and therefore learns to read. Without an avatar that looks like him I know that his immersion into the Phonics Museum world will not occur.

Why not offer a choice of avatars, one dark-skinned and one light-skinned avatar for each gender, for starters? Frankly, at this point in our digital age (and this price point) I expected more diverse representation and will likely drop the game during my trial period.



I really wanted to like this because one of my favorite homeschool bloggers had a podcast or two sponsored by this app and it sounded awesome. The concept is great but I’m not really willing to pay a monthly or yearly fee for an app.

Also maybe I am just crazy but the attitude on the little boy in the app was crazy to me. Complaining that things were boring or saying things were dumb. The attitude alone has turned me off to wanting to let my son continue to use the app. Maybe his attitude improves but come on! Learning is exciting! Going to a museum is awesome. Anyway... The target for this app is 3 years old and up. Let’s try not to create or enforce attitude problems with our kids.

If you can get over the first little bit I’m sure it’s a fine app. I don’t know.


Love it for K, wish it went through 1st

Hi! So my daughter went through the entire program and it really DID teach her to read. I supplemented with the physical versions of the books, so she would feel comfortable "picking up a book" as part of the learning to read process. It was engaging and incremental without getting boring. We loved all the characters. There were a few glitches along the way that I hope they've figured out.
My only complaint is that I wish it progressed through the 1st grade. As a busy home educator of 5, I would have loved for my daughter to be able to keep going into all that is covered with the physical version of Phonics museum 1st grade.
