Buyer Survey

People who had tried Reading Eggs were strongly in favour of the website and many parents felt that their children’s reading had really progressed by using Reading Eggs, including for reluctant readers. One buyer said it was usually quite difficult to get her daughter to read as she wouldn’t sit still for long enough. However she had taken to Reading Eggs quite quickly and seemed to enjoy the lessons, often wanting to complete more than the one lesson a day that they had planned to do.

A feature that attracted praise was the reward eggs that children receive as these really seemed to motivate their children to learn. Another useful aspect was that Reading Eggs helps children to learn in several different ways, such as through phonics, letter identification and matching pictures to letters. Yet another buyer mentioned the progress reports on their child that parents can see by logging on, while a few liked that the accents were British.

There weren’t too many negative comments although one parent felt that the progress reports were not comprehensive enough and would have liked to have seen problem areas highlighted, as well as progress. Another said that they would have liked the option of skipping activities, while an additional comment from one parent was that their child had a reasonable reading level but not enough to get through the initial reading test so he had to start from the beginning, which meant some repetition.
