“I am a home-schooling mother of two boys. I just wanted to thank you and all the Reading Eggs staff! You have all created an AMAZING tool to use in encouraging and strengthening my child's reading skills. My Bryson is 8 years old and really struggles with learning to read and enjoying reading at all. We have tried SEVERAL reading programs and curriculums, but nothing seemed to spark any interest. He is a very intelligent child, but bores easily. Reading Eggs has been able to hold his attention and get him excited about our school day. He actually went to bed last night saying he couldn't wait to do school tomorrow! I am so pleased with his response to this website! Thank you so much! You have helped this mama more than you will ever know! God bless you all! – Kelly M 

“After using ABC Mouse for several years I saw parents commenting online about how much they liked Reading Eggs. So we tried the 14 day free trial and my son loved it. I saw how it was helping my son with reading and also how much he loved the story generator and decided to sign up for a year. He still continues to want to use it and we're several months in.” – Monica Miller 

Reading Eggs has been the best purchase for our homeschool this year. Our 8-year-old dyslexic son loves and learns from this visually exciting program. It has helped his reading and also his writing as he has started his own 'ABC Reading Eggs' story book! He draws his own map, creates characters for each level and writes a story for each one. Amazing!” – Edyth N.
