Mom's Best Award Editor’s Choice 2013

Mom's Best Award was created to give moms and expecting moms an opportunity to share insights about prenatal, infants, toddlers, children, tween, preteen and teen products with other parents. When a product earns the Mom's Best Award designation, real moms have evaluated it and it has passed the strict Mom's Best Award evaluation process as conducted by real moms.
Parents can then purchase the product with confidence knowing that it will perform to a high level of satisfaction. After all, if you can't trust mom, who can you trust?

Reviews

“Nick and I have been reviewing the reading system for a month now, and honestly I can’t say enough good things about it. Nick was interested in it from the moment it arrived. I told him we were going to teach him to read and he was so excited that you would have thought we were going to buy him his own toy store! He asks to watch the DVDs all the time. I never force him to watch any of them, or to read the books. He just loves to do it.” Read more

“Benjamin’s favourite item in the kit, however, was the DVDs. I have to admit, I was a little bit surprised that he enjoyed them as much as he did. He only gets a limited amount of screen time and we have a lot of DVDs, so I would have expected him to select a more entertainment-based show instead when given the choice. But he happily sat down to watch the Level 1 Phonics and Sight Words DVDs, repeating the words being taught as he watched.” Read more

“For the purpose of this review, we studied a different lesson for 5 days. I can tell you that even 5 days of lessons made quite an impact on both of my kids. It was a great review for my oldest and my youngest caught on quickly. She was able to recognize letters much easier than when I taught her only using flash cards.” Read more
