The new Ruckus Reader aims to stand apart by helping to evaluate how a child is doing while reading and then emails parents a progress report. It’s kind of like a report card: once a week it highlights highlights where the child is doing well and where they need some help. The titles range from things like My Little Pony to SeaWorld. Ruckus Reader is a free app for iOS devices. Individual books range in price from free to $5.99 or you can get a six month subscription for $24.99 for full access to the library, with 15-20 new titles being added every month.
I like that I don’t need a separate device for my kids to read (like LeapPad): I can just use my ipad.
Reviews so far have been solid:
“Watch Out LeapPad.” — Daily Candy
“A wealth of content for every learner…” — Parents.com
“Awesome reading App…” — Five Minutes for Mom
