*From the team at ORIGINATOR - the creators of the beloved Endless Alphabet and Sesame Street's Monster at the End of This Book and Another Monster.... Originator is a team of passionate artists and engineers dedicated to the best education+entertainment apps for kids.*
As a follow-up to Endless Alphabet, set the stage for early reading success with Endless Reader! This app introduces "sight words", the most commonly used words in school, library, and children's books. Kids need to recognize these words by sight in order to achieve reading fluency. Recognizing sight words is advantageous for beginning readers because many of these words have unusual spelling, cannot be sounded out using phonics knowledge, and often cannot be represented using pictures.
Kids will have a blast learning sight words and their context and usage with the adorable Endless monsters. Each word features an interactive word puzzle with letters that come alive, and then a sentence puzzle with words that become what they describe. See the word "dog" as a barking dog, and the word "up" reach for the sky!
** NOTE: You must be online and have sufficient disk space while running the app to get all words in the app. **
- 6 words free to try with additional word packs available for purchase. Even more Reader Packs will be available for purchase in the future.
- Delightful animations reinforce sight recognition of words in a fun and interactive way.
- Word puzzles reinforce spelling using lower-case letters and the sentence puzzles teach definition and usage (in addition to sight recognition).
- Endless Reader was designed with your children in mind. There are no high scores, failures, limits or stress. Your children can interact with the app at their own pace.
I have a 11 month old that is amazed at this app. He will sit through almost 15 minutes of it and try to move the words himself. Quite a clever app.
This app is fantastic but for $2.99 I should get an a-z experience. The extra "packs" should be more words a-z, not the second and third thirds of the alphabet. That's just silly. Essentially, to get 26 sight words I have to pay $9?! Really? Ouch.
I left a bigger review on "Endless Alphabet," but my 22-month old daughter can read thanks to these two apps. She loves them so much, and just can't get enough. I will buy any future reader packs that the game supplies, and I hope they're working on a game for numbers because I would buy that as well. Thank you so much.
The animation keeps my kid glue to it until the end. It could be really boring without any animation.
This app is one of my 4 year old favorites! I love to sit with him and watch because the sounds and animation from the letter characters are so cute. The letter "N" is our favorite. He is beginning to recognize words when we read books thanks to this app!
My little baby loves this app!
This and Endless Alphabet are simply the best learning apps available for very young children. We have purchase dozens of apps and this one is the only one that is the full deal - clever, classy, easy to use...everything. I can't say enough good things about it. Honestly, I would have paid a great deal more for this app - it is clear that the development and design teams put a great deal of care into every aspect of the product. I've never felt compelled to write a review like this for anything before - GREAT JOB AND THANK YOU!
My almost 4 year old has been playing with the Endless Alphabet and Endless Reader apps since they came out. I have bought every pack that has come out because my son LEARNS with these! They teach him the word and the definition as well. I couldn't love this app more and I have nothing bad to say about it.
This app is incredible. Loads of fun and helps with the reading education of my kids in a simple way. Plus, I have a ton of fun playing it too!
So do I!
My son loves this app and I love the new word packs that keep rolling out making it new and interesting to him all over again!
My two yr old really likes this app. He has learned so many new words and recognizes the letters in his other books. Completely worth it!
My 20 month old daughter can already recognize words and letters and understands phonics because of this app. It's incredible and she loves it!
My three year old son loves this app! Highly recommend for children and parents to play together :)
I downloaded this app for my toddler son and he loved it. So, I bought one of the read packs thinking it could transfer to his ipad but it doesn't. Other than that, it's a great app. I'm just very disappointed that I have to pay another fee to add it to his ipad.
Great app for the price. Excels at teaching phonics, sight words and introducing new words. Love how it shows the number and the number word for those particular ones...i.e 2/two. The story telling puts it all together for the child to comprehend and makes for a great teachable moment all around. Love doing this app with my 3 year old!
3yr old loves it
This app is awesome! My 20 month old really likes it and understands how to play it.
Can't give enough praise for this app and the others by this company - clever, cute and educational! Big hit with my daughter and me! Create more please!
Way to expensive for add on packs. Seriously getting greedy. $3.00 for 20 words is not worth the price. I would rather have paid for the game than getting ripped of with IAP . You have lost my business greedy developers.
I'm disappointed that after buying the reader pack 1 on my phone, they are not available to be used on my iPad. I refuse to pay twice!
I purchased two series from this app bc it seemed great! But a day later my new words haven't loaded ....?? Oh and yes I have inter net.-feeling annoyed
this is a great app! nice compliment to endless alphabet. the reader's voice is perfect, rather than the usual sappiness in early childhood apps. just the right amount of visuals and excitement. one suggestion; read the sentences more slowly, and offer an option to highlight the words as they are read.
My 1 year old loves it of course with my help
I have three girls who all love playing Endless Reader. My 22 month old plays it the most. I enjoy watching her figure out each puzzle. My 5 year old loves it because she is learning to spell, and my 7 year old loves all the cute animations. Thank you for this educational game that I don't feel guilty letting my children play with.
My 20 month old loves this app. She already has it figured out.
This is such a great app, def worth the buy! My 2yr loves it!
It's never too early to start reading and this fun game really puts fun and learning together. The vocabulary words used in a sentence helps the concept come through. No penalties for not getting the answer right the first time keeps the kiss wanting to learn more and more words.
My 3 yr old loves it great app.
My 2 1/2 yr old grandson loved this app!!!
My students and own kids LOVE this app!
I love this app. My daughter is learning from it. It is a great way for her to start reading and she's going to be 4.
My daughter loves this app, but it's hard to learn sentences in this way.
My 3 year old loves it! So educational while entertaining and fun. Worth every penny!!!!!! Love!
This app kept my son engaged. He loved looking at the monsters. He laughs at the silly things they do. He is learning his letters in a fun way!
Great app! Educational...My 3 year old loves it!
I started using ios7 and now this app wants me to buy it all over .. Bad.
This app has been a huge hit with my son. Thrilled that he loves it as much as he does.
This app, like the Endless Alphabet, is the most fun and interesting educational app we've found. The voices, characters, and content are all great. This is an app that adults can enjoy sharing with their kids, and that kids will enjoy learning from.
My 5-year old loves this.
He knows his alphabet, this reinforces it. He's learning sentence structure and fitting words like a puzzle (just like Mom does with writing her book!) We both love Pinkerton. He cracks up at Pink during 'funny'. And mimics the silliness. So even after he's done playing with the app, he still plays with me and we can 'make funny faces' at each other all day. :) Its a very cute and sweet app for kids and adults. The monsters are cool but kind and cuddly. Super-educational. Just buy the whole app. It's worth watching you kid burst into hysterics. XD
I have purchased so many apps but this one by far is the best for my 4year old. Makes him laugh and helps with sounding out letter
This is the best educational "game" I have ever seen or purchased. My 2 year old loves it and is so good at it! My kindergartener loves it too and many of the words are his sight words. It is adorable and ingenious. I will buy every new pack they offer!
My 2 year old sister loves the colors, and the "rawr rawr"s as she calls them, and I love that she's actually learning words and spelling! Also, I am finding it quite enjoyable to watch her laugh at the funny dancing letters and silly monsters! Thanks from me and my little sister!
My youngest (2YO) and her older sister LOVE these Monster Apps. However, one small bug (but not a biggie as it doesn’t interfere with game play) is that the letters in of some of the words in the reader packs are not lining up in a straight line (e.g. HOUSE).
We recommend this app to everyone with children!
We recommend this app to everyone with children!
It's a little easy for my first graders, but perfect for the preschooler. I should make sure to add both age groups still love it.
My 4 year old love's it.
My sister recommended this to me for my 2 year old but I was skeptical it wouldn't be too hard for her. She was matching the letters the second or third time playing it! The graphics and animation make it so she doesn't know she is learning.
Worth every penny!
Too many locked items
My daughter loves it. I would like to see each word expand bigger as they are being read aloud.
My little girl loves this App. The only change I would make is that there should be a setting to choose if the letters have to be drug in order of actual spelling. Lots of great words. Love their other app as well.
Just like their alphabet/spelling app, this one is also very well designed. The interface is clever and engages their core audience/user.
My four year old loves!
My grandson started out with Endless Alphabet & just recently added this his not 3 yet & can spell out anything, This reader is a perfect next step to full out reading, Ty. Looking forward to "ENDLESS NUMBERS"
My 3 yr old loves this game. It is intuitive and. Funny. It has him drag fun looking letters and words to their places. They say their letter sounds and word names with a cute animation while being dragged. Very fun.
App crashes on my iPad during loading. No other troubles with any other apps. Please update!
My son is enjoying the app :)
This app is great...
My three year old daughter absolutely **loves** this app, and chooses it over non-educational apps! She will spend stretches of time on this, and can operate it completely on her own. There are no ads, no popups, no random screens that she has to ask me to read. She can already identify the sight words in books we read, and she's only had this app for two weeks! I am so happy that there are new words to add, as she is burning through them quickly! The only thing I wish the developers would add is a highlight function when the sentences are read--highlighting each word as it is read would help her connect what she hears with what she sees, as some of the words in each sentence are additional to the sight words taught. This is brilliant technology and brilliant design for getting pre-readers interested and engaged in learning. Hands down, this is **the best** educational and fun app out there! ETA: I rarely, if ever, purchase apps or add-ons for any of my children, or myself, for that matter. But the new word packages are worth every penny of the $2.99. And I cannot imagine I would be uploading new words for her very often, as each package comes with about 25 new words.
My three-year-old loves this. It is very well done and clever.
My daughter absolutely loves this app! She's 22 months old and has learned so many words already she can't stop playing it. This has to be the best app for toddlers ever. She's been playing it daily for like 3 weeks!
My 2 yo son loves this! He has so much fun, while learning! Very cute and highly educational!
I have an almost 2yo son and a 5yo daughter and I recommend this app to anyone that will listen. The animation keeps this so entertained that they don't even realize they are learning. It teaches phonics but it is so funny and silly at the same time, that my kids just laugh and keep replaying it. My son started playing this app when he was about 16 months and it really helped him pronounced letters correctly. This and Endless Alphabet are our two favorite apps!
My 2 1/2 year old son LOVES this game. I love that he has fun while learning. Thanks, you guys!
Great app with so much to learn.
Fantastic & educational
Awesome app but in app purchases are priced too high. They should cost less or include more words in them.
My son and daughter play this app all day long worth every dim
Loved endless alphabet and LOVE the endless reader as well! Perfect to introduce reading to my 3 year old.
I have a lot of apps for my grandson, age 4, and this is, by far, his favorite. He is entertained, involved, and laughing as he goes through the words. He is usually good for about 20 minutes on an app. With this one, he is happy for an hour or longer. I have all the words available, and am waiting for more. I am hoping they will offer Spanish words, too.
My 2 1/2 year old son loves this app! He laughs and loves all the sounds the letters make. This app is a keeper! Educational, fun, and colorful! This app is a home run!
Great app! One request, please turn on some toggles: randomize/shuffle on next/back button & limit amount of replays. I am always having to tell my 2 year old to hit next. Thanks! Chris
It is not being recognized on iPad although I purchased app on iPhone. It's requesting that I purchase on my iPad to get charged twice for same app. Not pleased and very disappointed.
We started with Endless Alphabet and now have Endless Reader. My now-4-year-old is giggling wildly at learning the names of all his “friends” in this app. Great work— thanks for a wonderful educational app duo that has lasted us over 2 years and still keeps him engaged!
It's more fun for me than my LO!
Our family loves this app! It is so fun and silly! Definitely has helped our almost 2 year old with hand eye coordination and much more!
This app is wonderful. My son loves playing it. He is learning new words and the colors and sounds make it so much fun. Great job!!!
Great app! Holds attention of my 2 yr old, for 30-45 mins at a time. His favorite and mine.
This visually charming app gives children the opportunity to practice spelling and what seems to be a very clever way to introduce and train "sight words." My two year old really enjoys it.
This app is the best! my 3 year old is actually learning to spell and his vocabulary has grown by leaps and bounds! The best part is that he's having fun learning!
I would recommend paying for the endless alphabet too. My two year old loves both and it learning so much. She will be reading before school at the rate she is going. She recognizes sounds and letters. And is talking more and more thanks to this app. She was not an early talker. Thank you.
Just made a purchase in iPad and assumed the new words will be available for the same app running on iPhone. Nope... That's not the case. =(
It makes learning fun and interactive.
Kids ages 5, 3 love this the most. So do mom and dad.
Unbelievable! My son loves this app. It is a great learning tool to boot.
My two year old daughter is always asking to play with Pinkerton. Her mother and I have seen a marked growth in her sentences and communication since she started playing. The IAP have been incredible too. Please keep them coming!
This and Endless ABC are some of the best apps for Kids in the App Store !
Still cannot use purchased items
Excellent app makes learning to read fun. The game mechanics and interface are perfect for teaching words to kids. Even the menu interface reminds kids of how to say the words.
Perfect app for preschool aged children.
Great app! The grand kids love it!
My daughter (3) loves the Endless Alphabet App, so I knew this would be a hit. She loves the animation and funny noises, but has no idea she is learning sight words. I wish I could have bought just one full pack of words and get updates with additional words instead of buying multiple word packs.
A fun, engaging sight word learning experience. Also reinforces letter names and sounds. My kindergartners love it! I've recommended this app to parents during conferences. Great job, Originators!
