Child Reviews of Easyread
To David, I have a learning support teacher called Mrs Read who has been trying to help me read – isn’t that funny that her name is read too! Mrs Read has told me that she can already see an improvement in my reading – I told her it was because I now do EasyRead. From Cora
You might just think Easyread is just a program but it really helps. I enjoyed the games, its was fun. I was really bad at reading but as soon as I started Easyread, my reading was better and I understood the story much better. Out of 10 I would give this program a definite 10. Thank you for helping me
I have a message for you from Máté which he asked me to transmit this morning after his lesson:
“I love Easyread!”. 🙂 …not a very elaborate one, but absolutely sincere. To be honest, with each lesson, I keep wishing you guys were here to see how much he does indeed love doing this project.
Hi David and Lydia
I am starting to get the hang of things.
I am finding it is helping me, to understanding how to spell and write.
My 2 favourite character is, The Thief with the beef and The Queen looking green.
I have been practicing steering at my finger as it gos around and around.
Do you choose the games when you spin the free choice spinner.
Ignatius just wanted to let you know that Spelldrive is a blast. He’s having so much fun banging into walls. The best game yet!
You are the best at making it like it is not learning and just feel’s like fun but it is helping me. Easy read you have helped me so far to learn how to read.

I like the lessons a lot. I really like the paintball games, letter quest and fighter mission and I love when I get free choice.
Thanks from Lincoln. (Age 8, Lesson 45)
When I asked him how he felt about reading at the beginning of the program versus now, he said this, more or less: “Before I started the program, it was like half of my brain was trying to get me to read and half of my brain just wouldn’t cooperate with me, and it made it really hard to focus on reading. So part of my brain was working for me and part of it was working against me. But “reading program” made it really fun to read, with lots of games and stuff, and it helped my brain sort of learn to cooperate with me. So now I can focus better and read better.”
He teared up momentarily when he talked about what reading was like before we started Easy Read, and it made me realize that reading is now tear-free. This is big progress, and makes my Mama-heart glad.
He did ask me to tell you that he doesn’t like Pinball and the Place Name Game. I told him I would, so I’m making good on my promise…though I totally get that his is a highly subjective assessment of those games and that both are fun for some kids and useful for all kids.
Thanks again, so much,
