This visual reading tool gives kids another method to help them read more easily, though it's best to try before investing. More than 90% of users report an increase in ease of reading when using the color gradient provided by BeeLine Reader. No formal research has been published demonstrating long-term gains, but there are some less rigorous studies that show some potential to increase reading speed and proficiency when using this web extension, especially for struggling readers, which makes it worth a try. The colors keep readers on track from line to line and are especially helpful when reading on a mobile device such as a phone or tablet. Overall, though this tool doesn't offer instruction it does give kids a simple way to potentially make reading easier, so it's definitely worth trying.

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.
