"My 4 year old is absolutely loving Reading Eggs, she's breezing through the levels and loving collecting eggs to then play games. A great way for kids to have screen time whilst learning along the way. Highly recommend for other 4 year olds who are also school ready."
"I just wanted to let you know how absolutely fantastic your program is. My son is 4 and was expressing anxiety and reluctance to attend school because he said the reading was “too hard”. We began him on Reading Eggs and the difference has been amazing. He is now so much more confident and happy about learning."
The educational aspects of this course are fantastic – the content matches what the kids are doing / would do at school. My 4 yr old son taught himself to read with Reading Eggs during lockdown while his sister was doing schoolwork with me. He loves the new Fast Phonics area."
"My children love Reading Eggs. They enjoy learning to read and spell with the lessons. My son struggled with other phonics programs. But he loved Reading Eggs. Opening a new egg after each lesson kept him motivated to finish the program. My daughter loved the Skills Bank part of the program. She was glad Reading Eggs had a spelling section."
"We love Reading Eggs! My son is making such progress in such short time, without even noticing he's actually 'working'. It's so fun and engaging he will actually ask for it rather than cartoons. Win! Highly recommended."
