3 yr old loved it & can read!

My 3 yr old watched this series in the car on a cross country trip. While slow and repetitive, he soaked it all in and kept asking to see them again. We limited screen time to 30mins to 2 hours at a time. 3 months later he really took off in his reading abilities! We are amazed.

Is It Any Good?

The DVD keeps its approach simple, and if kids can put up with the utter lack of action, it certainly would underpin more comprehensive reading lessons. Meet the Sight Words is organized nicely for parents and teachers, including mini-lessons of four or five words, video flashcards, and games to build confidence in recognition. The constant is that each sight word is always associated with its animated version to jog kids' memories.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
