Ratings and Reviews



I enjoyed using this app with my son in which I homeschool and this app places a part in our curriculum, so I decided to take advantage of the $4.99 deal and when I went to open the app it showed black and then shut down on me. I have sent 2 emails in hopes to hearing from someone and have yet to receive any response. I deleted the app and downloaded it again, I rebooted my iPad and that didn't work. Can you please help me with this issue so that we can further enjoy this app and if not can you please refund me the $4.99.
Thank you

This is not a game. It is a carefully structured reading program. I am impressed with the use of color coding. This adds an extra element that most reading programs don't have. Word families are color coded and this helps kids remember the different sounds. One note---adults need to work with the child learning to read these digital books-- just like they would with a paper book. Especially for the first few. Books are cumulative. Each book teaches a new word family while practicing those already learned in previous books. Kudos to the authors. It is clear that they truly understand reading.



My granddaughter, now 11, learned to read using the Rhyme to Read books which came out just when she was 4 or 5. I showed her the App (the first book is called Pat) and she was literally jumping up and down. "Of course I remember the Pat books! That's how I learned to read. I love the Pat books!!"
Perusing the App with her made me see how even more exciting the "Pat books" are now that they are in App form --- engagingly drawn characters, words spoken aloud on the IPad, color coding of word families even easier to distinguish. For parents and educators of children ready to learn to read, this App is a great tool!
