“This is the 1st learning program that my 4 yr old wants to continue to use! Most apps she likes for a few days & is back to something else.. she has chosen this over her favorite "YouTube" kids! That speaks volumes! I think the interaction is a huge part.”
-Ashley G. Mom of a 4 year-old

“My daughter uses Homer every single day! Her teachers tell me she is reading way above grade level and I know it’s because of Homer.”
- Kelly S., Mom of a Kindergarten student

"In just six weeks, with no intervention from teachers, students who used HOMER for 15 minutes per day improved the key skills most highly correlated with future reading success. That’s a big deal.”
- Dr. Susan B. Neuman, Former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education, Professor of Early Childhood & Literacy Education, NYU quoted in USA Today.

Homer: Kids Learn to Read App Reviews


Our favorite kids app  Augustyn's  5 star

I have four girls 2, 4, 6, and 8 years old and this is the go to app in our house. We use it as a part of our homeschool curriculum. Our girls base their presentations on the information that they learn about animals and instruments and such. Homer has played a big part in getting them reading... I love to hear them singing folk songs that homer has taught them as they jump on the trampoline. I can't say enough. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼


Great  gilmoreee  5 star

My son his homeschooled and we had trouble finding apps that would keep him entertained and learning at the same time, but this one is great! He loves it and I approve!

Literacy made fun  Westin's mommy  5 star

My 3 boys (6,4,2) love this app! It really tackles literacy head on, but in a fun and exciting way.


Amazing app  mcorros  5 star

This app tough my kids how to read and they r having fun reading!! So thank you for this app 😊


Waste of time  Ed-guy-Ed-guy  1 star

Nothing about this is free. It requires paying to do anything at all.


It seems good  marmar9596  4 star

It just won't load my daughter's "pathway". Not sure why.


Better than ever!  sbaker056  5 star

I always get a bit nervous when apps make updates, but this is the best version of Homer yet! My kids love that they each helped create their own learning path, and have been bragging about "whose is cooler".


Excellent!!  JasonLines  5 star

Lovely app, fun and entertaining but also very educational. My kid was reading a story to me the other night and it helped him along when he had trouble. The stories they add every weekend ar excellent!


Love it!  JPeeps22  5 star

Great learning tool for my three year old. I can't believe how much she is learning. What a thoughtful app that personalizes a wonderful experience that motivates her to keep going. We love Homer!

Nice app!  Robert Underduck Terwilliger  5 star

As soon as my 4 year old started telling me about Monticello, I immediately signed up for a one year subscription.

Decent.  AnnikaLynn  2 star

As a reading specialist, I really see the value of kids hearing their own voices. However, I'm disappointed that there seems to be little differentiation between the ages and abilities of the kiddos I've used this with. So far I've tried it with a pre-K and a 1st grader whose abilities are different, but the content was the exact same. I'm going to try it now with an older more fluent reader, and see the adaptability for that student. I'm glad that there's a month long free trial for me to decks if it is worth the $8/month.


No good  AJSpath  1 star

I don't like the monthly fee. It's not worth the money.


Homer is the best  Jpop1001  5 star

The Homer app has been quite a game-changer for our family. My grandson has been struggling to read and the app has not only motivated him to want to read, but he is also feeling more confident about reading. The recording functionality is really helpful and engaging and I can see his face light up as he completes each level. Thank you for creating this wonderful product!


So glad to be a grandma  Linda-Nina  5 star

This tool is a great supplement to school and is especially helpful as I watch the kids over the summer months. It's something they actually want to do and I see them loving to read. We have incorporated it into our nap time routine. We spend 15 min on Homer together, read two books, and then bed. Great variety of content for the grandkids-- even I learn something.


Disappointing  Narchocracy  1 star

Thank goodness you get a free month before you buy it. I barely have been able to use the app! Set up our wiggle and that's as far as we got. The app froze up, continued to do so once I quit and restart. I restarted my iPhone, and now the app crashes every time I try to open it.


Just loaded it and it's already asking for payment info  Babydoll9981  1 star

Before I could even see what the app does it was already asking me for my credit card info. Really lame not paying for app if I can't even see what it does.


Cost  zacdilmom  3 star

What is the cost after 30 day trial??


Great app. Careful of auto renew  Dtisht  4 star

Great app and customer service


Helpful  savamarie23  5 star

This app has been really helpful! I have a first grader who reads at a kindergarten level. I'm hoping to get him on level with supplements like this one.


Worst kids app!  Xiaowensun  1 star

With asked you pay with you credit card number and charge monthly automatically, and every time ask if you are parents or teacher and your birthday and password and so on to make sure kids can never do anything by themselves ! So always need bother adults! And since kids don't even like it so long time no use it so every Tim when I remember to ask them to do it I don't even remember the password! And I so much HATE it need I help to get to use a kids app!
