  • Powerful administration and user-management features that can track the results of up to 10 users

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and excellent educational material. 29 Nov. 2010
The Reading Success bundle was excellent value for money.

Colourful graphics and interesting characters helped keep the children interested in the tutorials while earning time credits for the reward games.

It was easy to understand and they liked the positive feedback when they got the correct answers.

The activities in this software are fun and engaging and I love the fact that my child is required to answer a certain number of questions in order to earn time for the reward games.
