Timberdoodle's review
Get Your Child Started on a Path to Reading
Learning to read can be as big a task for parents as it is for their children. While everyone loves watching their child’s eyes light up when he "gets it," the hours and hours of practice that both precede and follow that moment can be mind numbing. Now there is Square Panda, a delightful way to introduce your child aged three years and older to reading fluency through an easy-to-use tool set. With 45 “smart” letters that interact with the iPad apps, Square Panda Phonics is a visual, auditory, and tactile way to learn to read that will help your children discover how to decode letter and word sounds through a multi-sensory means.

Smart, Personalizable Apps
Using iPad apps, Square Panda provides an instant response to your child’s efforts and rewards tasks that are correctly completed with corresponding photos or humorous responses by silly characters. And if your child encounters repeated difficulties with certain tasks, the app will recognize this and alter the curriculum to allow him more time in that area. In addition, parents can even personalize the app so that if their child spells out the word "dog," the app will reward the child with a picture of the family dog. Similarly, a photo of mom can be inserted as a reward for when a child correctly spells out "M-O-M."

Customized for Each Learner!
Using the latest research on phonics, Square Panda makes learning to read more enjoyable, and it can be especially appropriate both for the very young and those needing additional reinforcement, including those recovering from a brain injury. Offering phonics instruction and diagnostics capabilities to measure and adjust the program for each user, Square Panda provides progress reports for the parent and will become your family’s favorite reading assistant. This engaging educational experience will help your child’s quest to gain reading fluency.

Square Panda is compatible with the third series of iPad and later, including iPad mini 2 and newer models.

    Our family loves this product! February 28, 2017
    Reviewer: Dustene McKenna from Independence, VA United States  
    I bought the Square Panda Phonics set for my 4 year old daughter for Christmas.  I was able to download 10 different apps to use with from the Apple App Store.  My daughter asks to play with it everyday!  Her older sisters who are 6 and 8 also love playing along.  My four year old has shown an increase in letter recognition right away.  The apps all combine letter recognition to letter sounds.  The apps are very kid friendly and an adult must sign into each app before your child can play with it.  I love how this is a good way to limit screen time and it also encourages parents to interact with your child as he/she uses the apps.
