Reading is fun! Five reasons you should give Readeo a try today
Whether you’re a grandparent, divorced or a mom/dad with young kids, Readeo is the best way to stay connected to the ones you love and encourage reading and learning at the same time. Here’s five reasons why you should give Readeo a try today.
With the unexpected arrival of the Coronavirus and the ever-increasing presence of online platforms, Readeo has taken center stage in the homes of more than 30,000 people. And for good reason. It’s a great way to get your kids excited about learning to read and staying connected to family and friends. So here’s a little bit about our experience with Readeo and five reasons why you should give it a try today.
What is Readeo?
Think Zoom but with children’s books. Basically, you sign up for the program and then your kids can read digital books online with grandma, grandpa, cousins, parents and friends. It’s so simple yet brilliant at the same time. I’ll be honest. I was hesitant at first but as soon as I saw how excited my kids were about reading, I was hooked. So, here’s five reasons why you should sign up for Readeo today.
#1: It’s affordable
Now, I’m a bit frugal. So, I was pleasantly surprised when I found out how much Readeo costs. If you sign up for a year subscription, it will cost you $99.99 or basically about $8.30 per month. That’s almost the same amount for Audible’s monthly fee. Plus, if you sign up before the end of 2020, you will receive a free month trial when you enter the code HOLIDAY2020 at checkout. Plus, if you’re not completely satisfied, they will give you a full refund! You can’t lose.
#2: It’s easy
When we first started using Readeo, I invited my mom to join us. I was a little nervous that the online format would be intimidating for her to use. But she didn’t have a hard time at all. Within seconds my kids picked a book and they were reading with their grandma. At the end, my mom said, “Can we do this every night?”
#3: It’s convenient
We have a hard time keeping our books organized in our house. Plus, my youngest seems to enjoy ripping the pages out of them. With Readeo, you don’t have to run to the library or the store to get books. There are literally hundreds of children’s books to choose from right at your fingertips. Whether you want to read online with a BookChat Buddy or by yourself, you have access anytime of day.
#4: It strengthens relationships
Now, this is a big one for me. Once you are signed up, you can invite up to four other members, who are allowed to join you for BookChats for free. Both of my kids’ grandparents live hours away. So, they are more than happy to sit down for 15 minutes and read a book to their grandkids before bedtime. Plus, Readeo is great for divorced families. It allows me, as a divorced mom, to read books with my oldest while he is away at his dad’s house. And, it’s perfect for parents who travel a lot and want to read to their kids while they are out of town.
#5: It’s educational
I wish I was better at getting my kids to read on a regular basis. But Readeo makes it really easy. It seems like they never get tired of reading books with grandma or their cousin. And all of the books are so fun. The only feature I wish that they offered was a larger reading library for kids older than eight years old. But I am told that they are constantly expanding their library to accommodate older children.
