Brilliant app!

"I have three children, my oldest are 10 and 11 and they both absolutely loved this app. I believe that if you can make learning fun, kids don’t even realise they’re learning stuff and just enjoy what they are doing. And that is what I feel ABC Reading Eggs does brilliantly. My 5‑year‑old son loves this and had some difficulties in kindy and with a combined effort from parents, teachers and some “fun” learning on the side, I believe ABC Reading Eggs really helped my son to catch up and even overtake kids in his class now! Love it and I recommend it to anyone who is needing some extra help with learning to read."
