Reading Software -- The Big Picture

All parents are anxious to see their children develop good, basic reading skills. This month SuperKids reviewers took a look at several new programs that focus on these skills. Can't find one here that meet your needs? Check out other Reading programs SuperKids has reviewed.

  • 3D Froggy Phonics [for ages 4 to 8] from Ingenuity Works, systematically introduces the user to each of the letter sounds, and drills evolving skills through a series of fun games and activities.

  • Stories & More - Animal Friends [for ages 5 to 7] Combines beloved children's books with a variety of thought provoking activities to introduce kids to the delights of literature while strengthening their developing reading and reading comprehension skills.

  • Phonics Voyage [for ages 4 to 10] from Arrow Educational Products, does a thorough job of presenting and drilling early reading skills using a pirate theme that may appeal to boys.

  • Leap into Language 1 [for ages 4 to7] from INNOVA Multimedia , is designed to teach early reading skills. Slow, focused approach will work best for serious, motivated learners, but not with children with short attention spans.

  • Reading Blaster Ages 7-8 [for ages 7 to 8] from Knowledge Adventure, is designed to drill reading skills of students in the first and second grades. It combines arcade-like fun with a variety of reading drills. It's not wildly unique, nor is it enormously appealing, but as an enjoyable way to help kids solidify their skills, it's quite adequate.

  • My Reading Coach [for ages 7 to adult] from Mindplay, is aimed at the serious (and mature) students who need instruction in reading proficiency. Older students in need of remedial work may find it helpful.
