As a mum of four, I know the frustration of trying to get young kids interested in learning to read. They couldn’t grasp those essential early skills. It was all too hard.

For my two oldest kids, the struggle was REAL.

Both of them were reluctant readers (it was never something they’d choose to do).

Worse still, my oldest was constantly guessing at words and struggled to grasp key phonics skills (decoding words).

I tried EVERYTHING from workbooks and flashcards to expensive DVDs. Nothing was able to “flip the switch”.

As someone who'd spent 25 YEARS publishing educational resources in Australia, I knew there had to be a better way to introduce kids to reading – a better way to make the process a whole lot more enjoyable.

Over several years, we looked at everything, and I mean everything until we found the essentials that really work in teaching kids to read. We also discovered what makes kids want to learn, what motivates them to keep trying. So we took everything we learned from best practice research, phonics instruction and child motivation

…and we created Reading Eggs.

The most comprehensive online reading programme for kids aged 2 to 13.

The uptake was almost instant. Children LOVED it. Parents were overwhelmed with the results. We received thousands of letters from excited parents who couldn't believe their eyes…their kids were READING!

One dad wrote to us in amazement after his 3‑year‑old learned how to read on Reading Eggs – with ZERO additional help.

He thought it was some kind of magic.

2018 marks ten years of Reading Eggs. I've been amazed watching our beloved programme spread all over the world.

And the sheer number of children who've learned to read with Reading Eggs is staggering:   20 million KIDS.

That's more than the population of Sweden!

And because Reading Eggs actually DELIVERS on its promise to help children learn to read, you will love it too. The Reading Eggs programme makes a difficult task easy, it turns reluctant kids into enthusiastic learners. It will take away any doubts you may have about your child's education. And that's one of the big reasons why parents love it.   I know you WANT to be a part of your child's learning to read journey.

Hundreds of thousands of parents have seen their kids learn to shine on Reading Eggs. They have written to share their excitement. That's how special the whole experience can be…because learning to read is the most important skill your child will ever learn.

With Reading Eggs, you can be right there by their side when they read their first sentence. Imagine that.

And the built in reports let you see how fast their reading skills improve. In fact, we email them straight to your inbox.

I witnessed my two youngest kids learn to read on Reading Eggs. And the contrast with my oldest kids was amazing. It changed everything from a process full of struggle to an experience full of wonder and joy, for all of us.

And I want you to have that same magical experience, too.
