Not quite what I was expecting.

Summary: It's okay, and my son enjoys playing with it, but it seems a little..random. Maybe it's because I got a used one without a manual, but it doesn't seem to teach the child, so much as it just reads to the child. The "quiz" part of it just tells you to click on the correct word and does nothing more than spout out little phrases like "you can do it! try again" until the child finally clicks on the right answer.
Summary: I think this game is bad, it is not intended for the age group it suggests because it doesn't hold their attention long enough. The children get bored very quickly and want to do something else.
Summary: Pretty decent game for the DS. My 5 yr old twins like it. It's not their favorite but they prefer the fun racing games over educational anyway. It does what it says. It's great for beginner reading and spelling.
Summary: My son is learning to read so I'm getting him everything that I can think of to help but this is not one of them. It makes you do the same story over and over before it will move on and my son gets so bored he won't even touch it.
Summary: My 4yr old enjoys this game but doesn't play it as much as some of his other games. It gets a bit boring for him. The stories maybe need to be longer. However, I think it's a good game for them to learn to read. I would recommend it.
Summary: My 4 year old twins absolutely love this game. There are several books to choose from and different levels of learning. The game will read the book to them and have them interact with the words. They are learning so much!
Summary: I bought this for my kindergartner because he loves school and learning, reading, etc. But he doesn't seem to show much interest in it. I believe he has only tried it out once. I don't think it is presenting the reading in a truely fun way.
Summary: My daughter is in first grade and played with this for 5 minutes before she said "This is really boring"... She also did not like that you have to hold the DSI sideways. Seemed very odd... Note that you only get 50% back if you return it like I did, but half is better than nothing if it's going to sit on the shelf...
Summary: My 6 year old has been struggling with learning to read. I have tried quite a few things, but he always reverts to wanting to play his DS. So I figured we could try this out. Turns out, he loves it and I believe it is helping. He is completely interested, which is hard to say at this age.
