Parent Reviews of Easyread
Our most recent reviews:
Great news last night. I was reading one of Daniel’s picture books to him (Max’s Words), which we’ve had for ages, and Daniel was able to read so many words and even some small sentences! The whole family was dancing around, and Daniel was so so proud. It’s the first time that he said “I’m learning, but it’s ok I’m going to get there”!
What a remarkable difference we are seeing in her reading. She had an assessment at school and progressed a level in both fiction (to level 27) and non-fiction (to level 26).
I am seeing in her spelling of longer/unfamiliar words that she is phonetically spelling more than she has previously so words are more dechipherable. Shows she can decode and hear the sounds…now just to get the right version of the sound.
Thank you so much from both of us!
Franny’s spy glasses prize arrived today and she is thrilled to be on this mission!
Thank you so much, very exciting – we love the characters and Franny can’t wait to do her next lesson now.

Thank you for your amazing program over the last year- it has been invaluable in assisting Sarann on her reading journey.
We have decided that we shall not be renewing at the end of this month as Sarann has really improved in leaps and bounds and has starting climbing in the reading groups and levels at school. We shall continue to monitor her progress and with the support around her she is going to be just fine. You have instilled a love for reading and writing in her which is wonderful to see and everything we had hoped that she would gain from your program. 🙂
Thank you again, your support and interest along the way has been greatly appreciated.
The system is fun for the child. The characters are hilarious and easy to remember. They make my son giggle. The first few lessons are also very achievable and build on the child’s confidence, which my son desperately needed and needs. He so far loves the lessons and looks forward to them. Thank you! I also appreciated the 10 day trial, as it is a lot of money to invest and it’s good to check if it’s a good fit first.

I just cannot think about anything that you can improve as I loved every bit of the course and I had so much pleasure doing the program with Ben and see him progressing!
You are amazing team and it was really worth it to invest the money with your program. Thank you!
Zenzi has transitioned over to reading early readers with a great amount of aptitude. I feel we have achieved what we came here for and she is ready for 1st grade. I would like to cancel her on-going subscription. Thank you so much, It had an incredible impact!!
Her school commented on her progress in the last few months and want to use her growth as a case study for other children. Have recommended Easyread!
First of all I wanted to thank you so much for creating this amazing, mesmerizing, fun, creative, educational program. If it wasn’t for you I would never ever be able myself to teach and encourage my son to start reading not mentioning writing. Time flew and we noticed that Benjamin actually is reading better and better. We will still continue the program as there is always space to improve. We also are thankful for the opportunity to play with a helicopter and we take full responsibility to use it according to guidelines.
With warm greetings and gratefulness
Thank you so much, this work has really been transforming for him. Totally in awe!

Out of nowhere, it has become a battle to get Harriet to do her lessons. On the flip side….she has become addicted to reading her book series, so for us the program has been a success. My husband and I never wanted the pressures of reading to become a chore to her, thus we are reluctant to pressure her to continue with the easyread lessons at this stage.
Thanks to easyread for all the support. It has truly helped Harriet get over her reading avoidance, and instead develop a love of books.
We are already seeing such a change in her everyday reading – she is wanting to read, she is decoding, her fluency and accuracy have improved dramatically and she is realising when it is not correct and re-reading. I can’t wait to see what happens as we continue on through the lessons. Look forward to the flow on effect with her spelling too.

We have really enjoyed the programme and Monty is very proud to have completed it all. Thanks for the offer of continuing at half-price, but he’s too busy reading actual books now, which is fantastic. So, we would like cancel the ongoing subscription.
We are really grateful for your support. Monty used to cry coming home from school because he thought he was “thick”; this morning he bounced round our local library choosing books to read for the summer holidays. You should all be really proud of what you do; it has a profound impact.
The program has been fantastic for Angus. He has made great progress with his spelling which is the reason we chose to do the program but his reading fluency has also improved significantly. We are really happy with the progress he has made so far. We would like to continue on with the program for a bit longer as I feel the type race and writing lab in particular are really helping him improve his spelling and writing skills
We have found Anessa’s progress using EasyRead to be phenomenal and she is now more of an independent reader and this programme has helped her with her music also. She is a lot more confident reader and is reading more to her expected level for her age.
We want to thank you for your programme, and truly believe it has made a huge difference for Anessa’s reading and confidence.
Everything is going really well. We are seeing Cooper more engaged in reading, reading signs, and asking me to buy him a book which is new!
– A (lesson 64)
He is much more open to learning if it is fun!
He loved the spy glasses btw and said he got them from his “games that he loves” which is your programme =)
Her teacher has reported that she is using more complex language, and although her spelling is still interesting at times, she is making more attempts to edit her work and is recognizing misspelt words. Her reading fluency is much improved and decoding is becoming second nature. She is much more confident and she is willing to try different vowel sounds until she gets the words correct.
And from a home reading point of view – Hannah is reading her own books at night for pleasure and is taking a lot of pride in reading aloud to us.
So again, Thank You!!
The support given by Easy Read via training and over the phone is really helpful. This program has changed reading into an enjoyable process for both Molly and and I and we know if we have any questions or problems, there is someone right there to guide us.
Seeing his level of engagement and enjoyment. No problem doing his short lesson. He seems proud of how he is getting on. I love to hear him sounding out his words. He would never have done this before for me.
Ewan has made incredible progress since starting this system not just in his reading but in school life in general. He went from being the disruptive boy in class to class star.
He’s general reading has also improved even just in the sense of never wanting to read even a label to happily reading a chapter book.

Dear Sarah and team,
I am writing to request our time with easy read ends. Following the arrival of the helicopters (which is excellent and enjoyed by all in our family) James has been reluctant to continue with the lessons. I think for him the helicopters marked the end of all his hard work and he expressed a wish to finish. As you know I was concerned about this and really wanted to continue as your lessons have been great at engaging James.
I told him we needed to continue with easy read until he was able to transfer to reading books, which we would need to read everyday. He agreed and we bought some Bear Grylls survival stories.
He has amazed us all by reading 3 pages every day and although he reads slowly and steadily each time with fewer guesses and more fluently.
He is extremely pleased with himself too which is great to see.
So thank you to all at easy read I have learnt so much and my beautiful boy can read just as you said he would.
Amelie completed her last lesson today and I would like to give approval for her to receive the helicopter.
Both Rick and I are thrilled with Amelie’s progress on Easyread. She now chooses to read for fun which is certainly a huge difference from the little girl who resisted reading before starting the program. She has a great library of books that we have added to over the year, as encouragement for her progress, and she will now stop Easyread and continue to read to us and on her own.
Thank you so much for helping us to encourage a little lifelong reader.
Monty would love to continue Easyread so we’ll keep going, at least until the end of the year.
Its been wonderful to see him come so far, so fast. From a little boy who struggled with phonics, which seems to be the exclusive method for australian literacy education available here, to a child who is beginning to read for pleasure, choosing his own books at the library and off the shelves at home. He’s been counting down his last few Easyread lessons, with tears in his eyes this morning, as it was the last one.
So thank you and your team so much.We’ll be happy to continue for the time being.
I just wanted to say that my husband and I cannot believe the progress that Molly has made in just a short time. Today Molly sat and read a 110 page chapter book cover to cover in about 3 hours. Reading quite a lot of it out loud with great fluency and next to no mistakes, sounding out complex words when needed. What a difference.
She was a child that was barely decoding, for whom reading the words was hard enough, let alone comprehending them. She is at the reading level expected for her age according to school, but we just really felt such a lack of change in the past two years with fluency and comprehension and still guessing and mixing up easy words, that I saw the ad for Easy Read, read up on it, it all made so much sense that we gave it a shot.
She loves it, the results after only 20 lessons are already apparent. I have got more of the series of the book she just finished and loved to really improve her confidence. Can’t wait to see what the results will be at the end of the course.
