Click “…More” to learn how this app can give you an opportunity for for fun and connection with your child, while also teaching him to read.

Your child has been playing with that new Speedy Reader app you bought for almost an hour, totally engrossed in learning to read the names of things in space, oceans, jungles, and deserts. You can’t remember the last time you saw him so interested in anything educational.

After playing a fast-paced game against the app’s bots, your son looks up and asks, “Will you play with me?” That’s when you realize that he doesn’t view Speedy Reader as a learning tool, but rather as an exciting game.

Naturally, you settle in to play because you love what he loves. It’s a great way to spend time and connect with him. Plus, you’ve even learned a few things yourself!

Speedy Reader is a reading game that teaches kids and adults alike. It’s great both for youngsters who are learning to read and for adult English language learners. Above all, it's a wonderful way for parents and grandparents to do something fun with the kids.

Using a combination of beautiful photos and text, this app stimulates visual learning. There is no cartoonish imagery here; just the real thing. All of the Speedy Reader photographs are crisp and with Apple's new retina display, incredibly clear and beautiful.

The application uses pictures from four different environments: ocean, desert, jungle, and space. Each animal or object is named, to help kids expand their reading and spoken vocabularies.

Kids can learn more than 90 words by playing with Speedy Reader. Some of the words are ordinary while others are exotic. Your child will have plenty of fun, but the app provides achievable challenges too.

There are three different modes of play in Speedy Reader. Children can practice on their own, play a fast-moving game against one of the Speedy Reader bots, or challenge a friend.

One of the features that can raise a child's self-confidence is the leaderboards. When a child sees her name and score posted, it can instill a sense of confidence in her reading skills that wasn’t there before.

Here are some of the features that you get in Speedy Reader:

* Amazingly crisp, clear, and beautiful photographs

* Teaches the names of animals and things in four different eco-systems

* Teaches kids to read more than 90 words

* Provides learning fun and enough challenge to hold a child’s interest

* Play alone, with a friend, or against a bot

* Kids can build their self-confidence by earning a place on the leaderboards

Don’t think of this app as just an educational tool. Although Speedy Reader does teach words and increase reading speed, it can also be used for fun and bonding with your child. You can’t ask for more than that in an app, can you?

Give it a try!
