I am honestly the most excited about using this program with my 3 1/2 year-old son, who, while certainly still a pre-reader, knows most of his letter sounds (he knows more letter sounds than he does letter names, which I think is funny), and is starting to understand that the text on a page contains words that make up a story. He is a tiny bit young for this program as of yet, I think. When he uses Reading Kingdom right now he is just working on knowing where the letters are on the keyboard. He got a little tired of this, so I am letting him take a bit of a break, and then we will dive back in. I have access to this program until next February, and I am fairly convinced, based on what I have seen Amélie do, that he will have fun using this program...and it will help him learn how to read while he thinks he is just having fun. :)
Subscriptions to Reading Kingdom are $19.99/month with no monthly minimum, or $199.99 if you purchase a 12 month subscription. If you have multiple children using the program, the cost per each additional child in your family is $9.99/month. If you think you might like to try this program, but you just aren't quite sure you wan to make the commitment, you can try out Reading Kingdom completely risk-free for one month--you don't even have to give your credit card number! :) If you have any questions about the program, I am convinced, based on my experience in corresponding with this company, that you will also receive excellent customer service. You can't lose! And I think you will do more than not lose--I think that your kids could easily become yet another Reading Kingdom success story.
