"I love the Reading Kingdom program and have 4 of my children using it currently. After 13 years of homeschooling, it is the best program I have found!"
Lindsay Durant
homeschool review
"My daughter loves it, and has become super-charged excited about reading, often choosing to do 4 or 5 lessons in one sitting. Her favorite part is "earning" books -- the reward for completing exercises that build up the child's ability to successfully read a complete book that is geared specifically to his/her current progress."

"Honestly I cannot say enough good things about this reading program. All five of my younger children have absolutely loved it. They fight over who's turn it is to use it. Then come and tell when so and so is doing it longer than just one lesson...The best thing about this program in my opinion is that it actually customizes the program to your child making it neither too hard nor too easy. I've not seen another program that does that."

"My son Connor loved Reading Kingdom from the start. The combination of computer time, cute animated animals, fun sounds, and tons of encouragement and praise made for reading instruction that seemed more like playtime than work, and for an active, seven-year-old boy who would much rather play than read, that's a good thing...In Connor's own words, 'Mommy, I can READ!'"

"WOW! I have had the pleasure of reviewing a fabulous educational program called the Reading Kingdom…Lessons are short enough to complete while their interest is still there and they always have the option to move on and do more OR to be done for the session. My kids, ages 4 and 6, often beg to do more! They really love it and consider it more of a fun game than an actual lesson. I am BEYOND thrilled with the program!"

"My son William loves Reading Kingdom. And I've seen that it has made a big difference for him, just in these few weeks we've used it. He does it willingly, which is HUGE. He generally wants to do more than a single "session" at a time... My son Thomas loves Reading Kingdom. Once he got into the Reading part, he soared. I cannot begin to describe it. He is voluntarily reading a LOT of stuff. Reading captions on the television, volunteering to read his little sister's birthday cards aloud to her, reading signs, reading ahead in read-alouds. It is stunning."

"I loved this program because the approach just makes sense to me. I've used only phonics based programs in the past, and it was really interesting to read about Dr. Blank's philosophy. I'm excited to incorporate my newfound knowledge into our reading program!"

homeschool review
"I like the program a LOT! This is one of those resources that my children request every day, and that reveals a lot right there. One of the greatest selling points of this program is that it is customized to your childs level. What an advantage over what you might experience in a large classroom. In that setting, it's doubtful that you'll find that individual attention to a child's ability. I will be continuing to use this within our homeschool, and I hope that after reading this, you'll be inspired to try it out too. Happy reading :)"

"Prior to starting Reading Kingdom, my son Hunter would have rather chewed off his own arm, than write anything down on a piece of paper. Now he is passing me notes in church, and is asking to write letters to family members...When I asked Hunter what things he liked about Reading Kingdom, he said, "I like how it just helps drive the words into your head. If I don't know how to spell the word, it teaches me. Now the words are like automatic."

"My daughter enjoys working on Reading Kingdom each day -- and does so without a fuss... I am seeing results as her reading skills come into "season." Best of all, SHE is seeing results and that makes all the difference in the world."
Lynn McInnis, This Day Has Great Potential
homeschool review
"I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how quickly both boys have learned to write a variety of words and sentences. I like the email updates and online progress reports. I recommend The Reading Kingdom for parents who want a comprehensive, engaging, and well-researched reading program for their kids."

"We LOVE this program. I have officially packed up my phonics curriculum for both children. I have noticed improvement in reading with my 7 year old and much less frustration from both of us since we don't have to dredge through phonics. She can read real books and spell the words and get feedback right away...I plan on using Reading Kingdom with my other children as they reach the appropriate age to use it."
Katie Corbett, Camp Corbett
homeschool review
"My son practically begs to play his "spelling game" as he calls it. Cute isn't it. He doesn't even see it as a reading program....This is a great program. It takes your child step by step through the process of learning first how to key in the correct response, and then by teaching one word at a time with repetition. The skills learned are then reviewed to ensure retention. Once your child has mastered the mouse and can find the proper letters on the keyboard look out because they will just take off. You will get a reader report that keeps track of your child's ability and your child has a cute little owl friend with great visuals to help decipher any unknown words."

homeschool review
"I just asked my daughter what she thinks about Reading Kingdom. She said, "I love it!" And she does. I don't have to ask her to use the program. She asks me -- often multiple times in a day. There are plenty of phonics programs available and lots of ways to practice phonics skills, but I've not found another on-line tool that teaches reading like Reading Kingdom. I also like that the child can work independently. I need help finding enough time to give each of my children individual attention. Having Reading Kingdom has given me time to work with one child while another is actually learning on the computer instead of just being entertained. Finally, I like that it has gotten my daughter so excited about reading!"

"Since using Reading Kingdom with my daughter she has improved her reading level in such a dramatic way that just today we read a very hard book together about Wetlands and another about Rain Forests, in which she read the fun facts part out loud to me instead of me reading the entire book. This is HUGE for my daughter!"
Amanda Werner, All American Family
homeschool review
"My daughter has been able to work through this completely on her own. Each lesson takes 10-20 minutes to complete. She has asked for very little assistance. I can view her progress online but I also receive emails letting me know how she is doing and when she has advanced. She has absolutely loved using this program and we will continue to use it. As I stated previously, she is in second grade, and while she can read she is not fluent and gets very frustrated with sounding out words because she has figured out that there are lots of rules and they don't apply consistently. She used to sit and try to read and get very distracted. After using this program, her confidence in her ability to figure out the words has improved tremendously. We can now sit down together and she can read simple books without distraction. The best part is she ENJOYS doing it now. I never have to ask her to do her work on Reading Kingdom....she does it on her own and it's not unusual to find her working on it more than once per day."

"As a parent who does not like a lot of computer time for our children, I was hesitant to use this program every day. After seeing how much they are loving it and reading and typing better, I have come to realize how wonderful this program really is. I have recommended it to several of my friends."
Colleen Vukosich, Vukosich Family
homeschool review
"This program was very self explanatory right from the start. There is nothing more frustrating than getting a program (online or via software) and have to spend hours figuring out how to use it. This is not the case with Reading Kingdom. All I had to do was a few simple steps and the kids were off and reading!!...I am using this with Hannah age 13 and Andrew age 11. Hannah has Auditory Processing disorder and needs extra work with her reading. This program has been a gift from God...I'm not over playing it at all. The program is so well done. The compliments she gets for completing each level have been amazing. She loves to "play" her game. We have seen such an increase in Hannah's reading level since starting Reading Kingdom. But most importantly her confidence in herself has gone way up!... Andrew is age 11 and just does not like to read. He just doesn't like to sit period. This program is amazing at holding his attention. He loves how fun they made reading! He is continuing to advance in reading levels. He will now sit and read books. Thank you Reading Kingdom for giving our children the confidence they need to improve their reading!!"
