Additional Comments from WORD Force Reviewer

“My son is 5-years-old and loves all things numbers and counting, but has resisted every method I’ve tried to get him excited to learn letters and their sounds. I’ve gotten other apps that many have used with good success, but he has not liked them at all, certainly not enough to stick with them long enough to learn from them.

I downloaded WORD Force and I honestly expected of more of the same. To my pleasant surprise, he loves it! I couldn’t be happier to be wrong. He loves the rhyming games. He’s been enjoying pointing out rhyming words lately, so to have this game where he can feel like he’s succeeding I think has made the difference. He’s been asking to play “that reading game” on my phone, and I’m all too happy to hand it over.

The only thing I wish I could change is that I can’t get it on his tablet (an Amazon Fire for kids). If it were available in that app store, I would be thrilled, but if that’s the only thing to complain about, that’s pretty good. I’m excited to see how my son’s phonics skills progress with WORD Force. It’s a great app, and it’s FREE! What parent doesn’t love free?! If you have a child learning to read, it’s definitely worth a download!” – Naomi W., North Carolina
