Review: Reading Eggs

I cannot tell you how excited I am about the latest review that I had a chance to take part in. For quite some time now, I have toyed with buying a membership to the learning site Reading Eggs. I have done the two week trial and liked what I saw but never felt like it was long enough to really invest $49.95 for six months or even $69 for a year; that is until now. For the past six weeks both of my kids have gotten the opportunity to explore and learn on the site and I've seen an explosion in how much my 4 year old has learned. He has actually read at least two sentences this far and is well on his way to reading much quicker than my daughter did. I definitely attribute that to using Reading Eggs. No other site has kept him engaged in the learning process quite like this one.
