Reading Software
The Big Picture

To Read.
The dictionary defines the word simply as "to comprehend the meaning of something written." Most of us, however, recognize reading as the keystone to education, knowledge, and future success. That belief, combined with a never-ending stream of stories about the decline in students' reading ability, has spawned an incredible demand for educational software to fill the gap. Software publishers have been only to happy to meet that demand, producing more titles in the "learn to read" category than any other.

SuperKids' reviewers looked at five new titles this month, evaluating their content and design, as well as their kid appeal and ease of use. Which is best for your child? Read below for cameo descriptions, then click on the titles that interest you to see what our parent, teacher, and kid reviewers had to say.
