    "As a homeschooling parents, one of the most challenging aspects of educating my younger children is teaching them to read. My youngest son tends to get stressed out easily with the traditional method of learning to read. The solution? Homer - Kids Learn to Read App. My kids love playing on the tablet and this makes learning to read less confrontational and more of a game to them. I have already noticed huge leaps in their ability to grasp the basic concepts and they're already reading small books after just a few sessions on the app. If you have a child that gets frustrated easily, give this one a try - it works!"
