Bookbot is a book reading app for practicing readers. Use this kids learning app to access a virtual reading assistant that will listen to your child read out loud, helping them as they go along. Also included in the app is a library of specially written books that will guide your child through their very own reading journey.

Bookbot is an English learning app with a difference: it actually listens to your child as they learn to read, highlighting the words and stopping when they make a mistake. Readers can either have another go at reading the word correctly or listen to the word being read by Bookbot before they continue.

Bookbot has been developed by a team passionate about creating the best learn to read app that is based on scientifically proven techniques. Using a phonics approach endorsed by numerous reading experts, Bookbot will develop your child’s reading confidence at their pace. Bookbot was inspired by children who need a dyslexia app, but it works for everyone.

‘Just right’ reading levels - Individually selected books based on your child’s current reading ability - your child can enjoy success whilst stretching them just enough.

Guided progress - The line your child is reading is highlighted as they speak, encouraging focus and fluency. It’s like having your finger following their reading.

Immediate feedback - Words are de-emphasised as your child reads them correctly - they get an instant sense of confidence and achievement.

No more guessing - Words that are Incorrectly read are identified and spoken by Bookbot before your child can continue reading.

Easy on the eye - specially chosen fonts, careful use of spacing and page colours all make the reading experience as easy as possible.

We read with our son, but we find that he needs more practice. This works for him. The illustrations looks good. It would be better if it worked without the internet.

Great Concept and Many Features

I haven’t been getting any of the issues that other reviews complain about, and I actually had the chance to use the app for our child. The app comes with many books for children in it, and it encourages you to read aloud to your child or for your child to attempt to read the words. The text on the app is perfect and it isn’t too small nor too big. One thing I would like improved is the loading times and more features. It could use more GUI elements and more organization. Great app, and I will use this app and hope it’ll get updated and releases new features!

Great free reading app for kids!

I downloaded this app for my son and daughter. They are required to read at least 20 minutes every night and I've found instead of buying books constantly using online reading is a nice option. My daughter had really enjoyed the variety of books, and it will take her quite some time to work her way through them all. The app is super easy to use for the kids and so far we haven't had any issues what do ever. We will continue to use and I highly recommend it for other parents! Available great kid safe app in today's world!!
