Children love new challenges and adventures. But for kids learning how to read, the process can be intimidating. Toss in an older sibling gleefully taunting and undermining the younger child’s confidence, and you have the makings of an apprehensive early reader. Parents and teachers can bolster a child’s efforts but kids also need independent reading time as well. Books are a given, but also the use of educational apps can be beneficial as well. Enter Endless Reader, a fun app for the iPhone and iPad geared towards early readers from the creative team at Originator.
Features of the app as per Originator:
– 6 words free to try, and the complete Reader Pack 1 of 20 additional words available for purchase. More Reader Packs will be available for purchase in the future.
– Delightful animations reinforce sight recognition of words in a fun and interactive way.
– Word puzzles reinforce spelling using lower-case letters and the sentence puzzles teach definition and usage (in addition to sight recognition).
– Endless Reader was designed with your children in mind. There are no high scores, failures, limits or stress. Your children can interact with the app at their own pace.
Filled with colorful inviting characters and an engaging intuitive interface, kids will quickly become enamored with this adorable app. In my own tests using an iPad, my 5 year old was up and running with the app in minutes. Endless Reader represents fun confidence building educational apps at their finest.
