Isn’t funny how kids are different? My two boys (8 years and  6 years old) have different subjects they enjoy in our homeschooling. One may be good at one subject while the other struggles. In that case I try to make it fun for the struggling child because if I don’t they give up and do not want to try. I was recently asked to review Reading Eggs, I immediately jumped at the chance. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about this program and I knew that it was be wonderful resource in our daily homeschooling lessons. I was right!


 Reading Eggs is a website for children 3-13 years of age that uses games, songs, golden eggs and other rewards to make learning to read interesting and fun.  Offering great online reading games, activities, fun lessons, comprehension, spelling, grammar and  1000 reading eBooks available.  Plus they now have over 120 lessons! Plus it is teaches children  how to familiarize themselves with the computer keyboard and typing.

 With homeschooling various age children I like that Reading Eggs is broken up into different ages. My six-year-old son is using the Reading Eggs program designed for ages 3 to 7 years.  i highly recommend that for the first time a child uses this program  that they opt to take the test so that all future material they are given is geared to their understanding. This test really helped me because I knew my son struggled with reading and it was something that we have been working on but  after seeing how he tested I know that we need to work a bit harder.  So we have been sitting down together and doing Reading Eggs and I have seen an improvement in his progress. This has been such an encouragement to him because once he is using Reading Eggs he wants to keep going! Now after he has used the program for the past few weeks he enjoys reading more now than he ever and he doesn’t complain!

My 8-year-old son is using the Reading Eggs Express which is for ages 7 to 13 years.  This child loves to read so when he gets on this program he will read 10 books at a time.  My son particularly likes the reading books. He can choose from various categories from the library such as science, animals, space, fantasy, comic,  sci-fi and more! After reading each book you can opt to take a small quiz about the story they just read. if you score 80% or higher you receive a trading card which you can trade.  This is a wonderful way to reinforce that they are digesting what they just read.

Children can choose from a main screen a few different options: Stadium which offers vocabulary, spelling and grammar. The Gym which has comprehension lessons.  Plus with his golden eggs he can purchase clothing and other items for is Avatar character at the Mall. My son realized today that after hitting his target reading 10 books at once he received bonus golden eggs! This was a big deal for him because he loves reading as it is but it keeps him motivated to keep reading.

  1. my 4 year old is doing Reading Eggs. She LOVES it. She likes to do her work while mommy does work at the table.

    PS your rafflecopter code isn’t working

  2. Nice – I wish this had been available when my girls we just starting out!

  3. This looks so awesome. My daughter is 8 and is struggling with reading. So much so that she was held back in the first grade. I’ve done everything I know how to do, but it’s not enough. I’ll have to look in to Reading Eggs and maybe it’ll finally be the boost she needs to get out of the slump and get back her reading confidence.

  4. Oh I had not seen this yet! So glad you shared!!! Thank you, totally checking in to it!

  5. looks like a great program for kids (and resource for parents). fun giveaway too

  11. That looks like a fun resource for kids. I’ll have to check it out while it’s free. Thanks!

  12. My kids are great readers, what I need help with is getting my eldest to ENJOY it more. I always thought those who didn’t enjoy reading were those who struggled with it. But she reads above grade level but doesn’t like to read. I don’t get it.

  13. That looks so awesome! I’ll have to let me friend know as her daughter is struggling with reading. Fun!

  14. My daughter is 8 and just loves reading eggs, I have seen an improvement in her reading, so I love it too.

  21. I’m curious. Is this program aligned with Common Core? Also, I didn’t see a cost for the program (I may have just missed it.) Can you share what the membership cost is? It’s sounds like it would be a fun program to use.

  22. My youngest son is learning to read now and this program looks like something that he would really love!

  23. I have heard a lot of good things about this program. Would love to try it when my daughter is older.

  24. We’ve been using reading eggs, and we love it! We haven’t gotten this far yet, though, so it’s awesome to see what it’s like for advanced readers.

  25. I absolutely love Reading Eggs! My kids used them when they were in the beginning grades of Elementary school. Kindergarten through grade 3. And it helped them so much. I seriously loved the program. My boys are beyond the level now, but I’m looking forward to using it again when my daughter is ready. I loved the Reading Eggs program.

  26. I’ll have to have my son try this.

  27. I have never heard of this but I think it is pretty neat. I am always looking for ways to assist me in teaching my son

  28. This is outstanding. A great way to get kids to read more is A+++ in my “book”.

  29. We love Reading Eggs! Hayley uses it all the time! So much fun and so educational!

  30. These are so cute. 🙂 I think my daughter would enjoy this to read. 🙂

  31. I actually used Reading Eggs with my daughter. She loved it and it worked great.

  32. I’ve never heard of this, but plan on using my free trial with my daughter! I also entered the giveaway. Pick me!!!

  33. This sounds really fun. My kids like to be on the computer but it can be challenging to find something that is educational as well as fun. I will have to check them out for my kidlets.
    Thanks !

  34. This is another one I’ll have to file away for down the road! My son’s only 21 months, but I’m hoping to homeschool him. I already know what curriculum I want to use, but I’m going to want fun things to supplement.

  35. My 6 year old likes to read, but she could certainly use a good push in the pronunciation department. She would enjoy Reading Eggs for sure!

  36. Thanks for a great review.. I’ve seen this a few time snow and really like the consistency that everyone loves it…I soo need to check this out for my daughter..thanks for sharing

  37. I have heard lots of good things about Reading Eggs lately. It sounds like a great program!

  38. I have heard of this and I think it is a great learning tool.

  39. Charlotte is a decent reader but can always be better. Checking this out for sure!

  40. There are great incentives built into this game. No wonder kids love it so!

  41. I have been looking into this for my son.

  42. This sounds like it really is a great idea! My son will be 3 next year! I can’t believe I’m saying that so it would be definitely something I could think about. Thanks for sharing!

  43. Thank you for sharing about reading eggs! The kids will learn to read while having fun!

  44. Ooh I wish I had found this before my son started Kindergarten!! I’m gonna check it out, even though he is now doing pretty good for his age, he could always use extra help!

  45. I have heard great things about reading eggs! It sounds like a fantastic program.

  46. THis looks like a great product. My son is 3 however my goal is to get him reading by the time he is four. I know a little early, however this looks like it would be so much fun and he would want too!!!

    • Mommy2Jam, that’s not too early. Some children are interested and ready earlier than others. My current Kindergartner actually taught himself to read when he was 3 or 4. He loved letters and letter sounds from toddlerhood on. At first I wondered if he was just “reading” words that were familiar to him and thus a type of sight word, but it wasn’t the case. Anyway, I was mostly wanting to comment so you wouldn’t feel like you were considering something odd. =) Good luck!

  47. Oh I like that they have a free 5 week trial. Definitely going to try this out with my 3 year old. Sounds great!

  48. I **LOVE** this program! My 4 year old loves playing it and so does my 4 year old daycare boy.

  49. OMG I love this app! I want to use it myself. It looks so cute and fun, kids would be fools not to love it.

  50. I’ve seen this program mentioned before. It looks great. I always thought it was geared towards younger kids. Good to know older kids can benefit from it as well.

  51. I think I might signup for the free trial. Sounds like something they would enjoy.

  52. I always loved reading growing up but my sister was the one that struggled which made things, especially school, hard for her. This would have been perfect for her back in the day!

    I think it’s SO important to get kids enjoying reading early on.

  53. My son loves anything educational, especially before bedtime (of course). I know he’ll definitely love this. I’m going to try it and perhaps let you know!

  54. What a great way for preschoolers and early readers to learn.

  55. My kids use this in their class at school and have an account through the school. They love it and have even got my preschooler playing.

  56. These look like so much fun! I wish I could find something like this in Finnish for my son.

  57. This is a wonderful idea! My youngest is 11, but my best friends little one is in Kindergarten so she would love this 🙂
