  • I hear it does work and you can do the same ting with yuor kid by using flashcard (index cards) with the words and images on them. Also reading and talking to your child helps. So I would get it if Icould afford it but I know how to make it, I read to my son, and I encourage conversations.

  • I believe it's a system based on memorization....of a word to a picture. So it helps short term, but from all I've read about it (my husband REALLY wanted to get it before he read the same stuff) it will probably make reading in the long run more difficult to teach.
    Good luck!

  • your baby does NOT learn to read, its rote response learning . not the same thing as learning to read. a child learns cues and responses. its an utter rip off.

  • It's a parlor trick. If you want to help your kid with reading, read to your kid a lot. And that doesn't cost a hundred bucks!

  • I haven't personally tried it but I heard from a neighbor of mines that it do work. I'm interested in trying it myself but financially it'll have to wait.
