Our 19 month old absolutely loves this program.  He enjoys anything that involves reading, numbers or the alphabet.  He will sit in front of the screen and point to the letters in each word as it appears on the screen.  He can already read about 100 words, and I believe Little Reader had a lot to do with that.  I can't say enough about how wonderful a program this is.  I recommend it to everyone I know with young children.  Thanks, Little Reader!

We absolutely love it! Little Reader is not just a flash card program like many others on the market. It allows you to do so much: you can show different picture for the same word, you can easily create your own category with pictures of your baby, record your own voice, add videos... the possibilities are endless! Not only that, there's a whole wealth of great downloads created by other moms that you can simply download and use! Both my 3 yr old son and 9 mo old daughter love it! Thank you!

Yep, I'm a seller on your product.  It really is good and finally something I can use to get reading happening with my little one.  Of everything, the community of downloads, the tool to run the words, couplets, voice, video is so useful instead of the schlep of trying to do it oneself.  If I had to work out how long it takes to do reading materials manually, Brillkids will pay back itself over and over just in its time-saving ability

Thank you!

My daughter (14 months old) and I absolutely love Little Reader. We have been using it almost continuously for three months now and my daughter is starting to read quite a few of the words she has seen. She laughs delightedly when she sees many of the pictures and we get tears if we stop after only 5 playlists and plenty of clapping for words she likes. Its really easy to use and there is a lot of scope for adjusting things to suit our needs as far as pictures and pronunciation go. While I have home-made flashcards, I find that my daughter prefers the multi sensory approach which I would not be able to find the time (or materials) to do without Little Reader (I do not have so many magazines or time to cut out and stick pictures) Thanks again!

My bb girl is 16 motnhs now... i start using this software for 2 weeks. she like watching the animal sections.. expecially the animal with words and sounds.. Amanda will follow and speak the words.. now she can say dog. pig, frog, duck.. i think she try to say horse but she still cannot prounce the word..

Hi Lilian, thanks for your honest feedback! (karma to you!)

I've sent you a PM regarding the difficulties you are experiencing.

PS - Just saw your bug report post - thanks! I now understand why the editing is difficult for you! It's a rare bug that's triggered by your display settings. Will reply more fully in your bug report thread.

We started a Glenn Doman-inspired reading program with our son two years ago. I spent countless hours, at least two per night, handwriting cards. We bought cardstock in bulk and I could hardly stand the fumes from the permanent markers. Our son learned, but he went through the cards so quickly that we could hardly keep up with him!

When I heard of Little Reader, I was skeptical. Anything that sounds too good to be true probably is. However, that's not the case with Little Reader! I can program in whatever words I want and customize them to whatever we're learning about that week. I can show pictures. I can add sound and Encylopedic Knowledge information. Most importantly, though, my son loves it.

It was difficult to keep my son's attention with paper flashcards, and playing peek-a-boo behind the words got boring for me and for him. With Little Reader, I can customize each lesson so that it's different every time. With the multimedia options, it's always interesting. He begs to do Little Reader several times a day. For me, Little Reader has been a priceless addition to our smart baby resources.

My son has special needs and I have done the Doman reading program a few years ago.  I had to give up after 18 months because it took me too much time to find good images, then print, then cut and paste, on top of the physical program...  For a time I switched to powerpoint and worked ok.  But, now I am thrilled that thousands of parents are doing the same and we can share each others' works.  This saves me lots of time.  Also I find LR more versatile than ppt and I think this is an excellent investment I made!
Then....of course it's after LR stopped to crash which it did on my first week of purchase  rolleyes

Hi~ I'm Nancy ...

I started out with Glenn Doman flashcards on my first boy when he was about 6 months. His interest was not in viewing the cards but in snatching it from me! Then we move on the Baby Brain Workout Flash Card that trains both the right and left brain. He loves the flashcards but the only gripe I had was that words and pictures are shown together ... obviously he focused more on the pictures! When I stumbled on LR when I googled, I was amazed to find such a versatile system in teaching reading. Alas by then, I have my second baby ... I could not do much to customize the content. However, the inputs from the forum and the downloadable files everyone provided were really fantastic and really amazing in helping my son learn to read.

My first boy was able to read by 2 years old ... the words that he was exposed to in LR. It has been his great favorite. Some rather difficult words in eg. the different kinds of clouds ... he could also read. And he would try to identify the kinds of clouds in the sky when we are traveling by car. He also learned Bible verses from the wonderful files put up under the "religion" category. With that knowledge, I quote him on the relevant bible verses he has learned in different situations. Now, when he is fearful, he would recall the relevant verses and quote them as well. When he is naughty, he would also recall the relevant Bible verses on how he should behave.

As I started to train him on holding pens to write from 6 months old and subsequently writing on Kumon alphabet cards, now that he is 2.5 years old, he surprised me by writing his very first word COW spontaneously 4 days ago. I did not have to teach him spelling. He recalled the image of the word and wrote it out on his own ... reading it at the first time. I am truly thankful to God for how he make babies so amazing ... and I'm awed by how much a baby can learn!

Currently I am getting him to learn phonics from starfall.com ... a website a mother provided on the forum. He really loves the phonics program ... I hope to help him advance from mere reading of words he has seen before in flashcards to read words he has not been exposed to before thru phonics. And this, I must thank the articles on your website that gave me the awareness of whole language learning vs phonics.

Keep up the good work and I look forward to the new changes to the software.

Thanks to LR, all my kids know their first 100 Russian words within 3 months! They answer simple questions and try to make sentences. It's a great tool for learning a new language!
My younger two enjoy their word flash for Readers we use and love the animal categories too! LR library even has files useful to teach the older kids spelling. Thank you, BrillKids team, for producing a great software, all of my kids have benefited and will continue to. smile

I am raising my child in a bilingual home and was spending hours a week creating material in French. This is no longer the case: I purchased LR with a generous discount and am making good use of the many files available to download!
