I’ve never had an expansive vocabulary and neither did my mother. But yet I always wondered how my mom taught me how to speak. How was she able to impress upon me the ability to string multiple words into coherent sentences. If she had Endless Reader in her era, I’m sure things would have been so much simpler.
Endless Reader is potentially a replacement to preschool English lessons. With a wide variety of sentences for kids to embrace, the app encourages children to learn new words by creating memorable experiences. This is done through the assumption that kids are creatively visual creatures, and that they are easily amazed by what is pleasing to the eye. The app makes use of that via decorative and interactive words that easily catch and retain the attention of a reader.
Moreover, readers can tap on certain keywords where they are then brought to a new page to find out more about the context of said word.
i personally found this to be extremely cute and nifty. Think of it as one of those colorful storybooks you would read to a toddler, but this time with a certain degree of interactivity to it. This allows for the child to also master cognitive skills as it toggles with the functions.
Free to download, this is something I will recommend all new mothers to have.
Would I Buy Again:Yes
Who Is It For:Toddlers
What I Like:The interactivity and creativity of the app
What I Don't Like:NA
Final Statement:Spend some quality time with your child through this app
*From the team at ORIGINATOR - the creators of the beloved Endless Alphabet and Sesame Street's Monster at the End of This Book and Another Monster.... Originator is a team of passionate artists and engineers dedicated to the best education+entertainment apps for kids.*
As a follow-up to Endless Alphabet, set the stage for early reading success with Endless Reader! This app introduces "sight words", the most commonly used words in school, library, and children's books. Kids need to recognize these words by sight in order to achieve reading fluency. Recognizing sight words is advantageous for beginning readers because many of these words have unusual spelling, cannot be sounded out using phonics knowledge, and often cannot be represented using pictures.
Kids will have a blast learning sight words and their context and usage with the adorable Endless monsters. Each word features an interactive word puzzle with letters that come alive, and then a sentence puzzle with words that become what they describe. See the word "dog" as a barking dog, and the word "up" reach for the sky!
** NOTE: You must be online and have sufficient disk space while running the app to get all words in the app. **
- 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.
