What is it
Reading Eggs makes learning to read easy and fun, by combining books with online reading games and activities. The programme is a great way for your child to prepare for school, or help them catch up with their classmates if they are struggling with reading.
The app is filled with activities, eBooks, games and quizzes to teach kids the literacy skills needed for lifetime reading success.

What our experts think
Reading Eggs is a wonderfully comprehensive reading programme that gives children a broad learning experience. We love the way a programme is automatically created for children based on their progress – their programme log (in the top left corner of the home page) has activities and a book list chosen to suit their reading level.
Through the different activities children learn the key skills needed for reading, including letter sounds and comprehension. Collecting eggs by completing the activities, which can then be used to decorate their house or avatar, really motivated our testers to keep using the app.
The activities are short enough to keep children’s attention and there is a huge amount to choose from. It’s good that children have this variety but with so much going on it can be confusing. Navigating is a little overwhelming but our testers were able to use and enjoy the app, so this didn’t seem to be a barrier.
