    "This is a game that is interested for kids and keeps them happy. I download this and there is enough variety to keep them from getting bored. The only criticism I have that there is no way to track past performance and see what they kids are getting wrong. This would help a far as being educational."

    "The neat thing about this app is the kids will be able to hear themselves getting better with words and speech and impress themselves! It's a great motivator for the little ones, the free selection is pretty big if you are skeptical, and the later packages are reasonably priced once you see that it truly works. "

    "I found this App pretty simple to use and understand, plus I liked that Parents can update it by adding new words. It has strong ratings across the board, though not a massive number of them. The next step is to look at the research about whether this general method is a good way to help teach your kids to read. "

    "When you are desperately trying to get a minute to make breakfast or do some chores and your three year old is jumping up and down trying to grab your attention, putting them in front of a tablet seems painful and makes you guilty, right? The idea with Sight Words Ninja is you can at least make the time educational and help them with reading. Unfortunately, this app just never seems to work right for me-- no sound, cut in half words, frustrated kiddo. Not good."

    "That game itself is as good as any but the ads are often and intrusive. What makes is worse is many of the ads are for items which are far from appropriate for small children who this game is designed for, terrible judgement on the developers part. "
