Has anyone used Your Baby Can Read? If so, did it work?

I'm considering getting it for my 15 mos old.

  • my sister was gonna get this for us (first time parents) and i told her no because i've been told that just like all the other developmental milestones of a child, reading is to be taught, not rushed. they told me that forcing a child to "read" before they are ready can cause harm to their eyes and the eye/ brain coordination
