We were sent the introduction kit of your baby can read. It came with a DVD for the kids to watch and instructional DVD for me to watch and flash cards and a book. I’ve been quite impressed with the quality of the book and flash cards because the kids have been playing with them unsupervised.
I’ve been too busy to sit down with them and work with them for the amount of time every day that the program really requires to work. I do believe it works though, especially after reading all of the material and seeing the charts and graphs about what to expect on word recognition verses actual reading and how it increases exponentially starting around age three.
Your Baby Can Read introduces words using pictures. In a way, it’s just backwards memorization. You see the word and have to remember what the picture looks like. So the word is no longer abstract. They can see all the letters. So the symbols come together in their brain.
Thinking back on blogging while moving into a new house, I should have taken a break. That way I would have more time to dedicate to doing reviews, but right now I have to spend so much time unpacking and cleaning everything that I’m really not sitting down with my kids and teaching them. They are learning but I know my little sponges could learn how to read if I would follow all of the instructions that were provided in the DVD. And if I would read more to them. I don’t think once a day is enough and that’s about all I’m doing right now. Read to your children that’s what I need to do and you should to. The props that you get from these Your Baby Can Read sets are pretty cool though. It’s just memorization but isn’t that all learning is sometimes.
