Parents need to know that Learn with Homer is a learn-to-read app for kids ages 3 to 6 that incorporates drawing, voice recording, stories, songs, and more, along with more traditional phonics exercises. A beautiful map on the main page presents all of the options kids can explore: Learn to Read, Story Time, Discover the World, and Homer's Clubhouse. Clear verbal instructions guide kids in all areas. The systematic, sequential phonics program provides kids with lessons, then interactive activities, and a review before moving on to the next level. Within Discover the World, kids can learn about topics ranging from zoos to the five senses. The stories are beautiful, and include many genre-specific sections, like poetry and folk tales. Kids are encouraged throughout the app to draw or voice record their thoughts about everything they're learning. Up to three kids can have individual user accounts on one app, and parents can view progress of each kid aligned with their parent account.
Kids can learn foundational reading skills on Learn With Homer: basic letter sounds, letter (capital and lowercase) and word recognition, critical thinking, and reading comprehension. By reading or listening to the stories, kids can also learn about animals, world cultures, music, and more. As kids draw and make voice recordings, they learn digital creation skills. So much content, kids will have something new to read, listen to, or try for months. It's unfortunate, though, that the free and paid content are displayed together, which could frustrate young kids. Learn With Homer is a captivating, comprehensive beginning reading resource.
