In this ABC Reading Eggs review, preschooler parent Sheridan McAnulty shares her family's ABC Reading Eggs journey. The mother‑of‑two says her family has been using ABC Reading Eggs for three years, when her eldest child started kindergarten in 2018. Her preschool daughter Aria got her very own account just after she turned three‑years‑of‑age.

Was there a reason you started using the program?

We started using the program to improve our children's vocabulary, comprehension and reading skills. Also, to develop a joy of reading and learning.

Which programs does your preschooler use?

Aria is currently using ABC Reading Eggs Junior and ABC Mathseeds.

How often does your preschooler Aria use ABC Reading Eggs?

On average Aria uses ABC Reading Eggs once to twice a week for approximately 30 to 50 minutes each time. We usually let her decide when she wants to use it and for how long, as we don't want it to seem like a chore.

I definitely feel Aria is learning the essential knowledge that a preschooler needs from using the program. The educators at the preschool she attends have commented on her great understanding of simple mathematics, spelling and reading. The skills she has practised while using ABC Reading Eggs have made it far easier for her to understand and excel in tasks within her class environment.

In our experience the main motivator for Aria while using ABC Reading Eggs is unlocking eggs and seeing what is inside, she loves the surprise aspect as well as the reward for completing tasks.

ABC Reading Eggs has really improved Aria's independence not only with learning but also with using technology.

Does Aria have a favourite ABC Reading Eggs or ABC Mathseeds character?
