Love All about reading and ziggy
My four-year-old daughter absolutely loves the all about reading pre-reading program. We love the zebra. I love that it's scripted and I don't have to do any preparation for it. It also seems very effective, we are on the letter I And she really seems to be mastering each letter in only a day. ;)

We love Ziggy!
Ziggy Zebra is a great addition to this pack. I'm so glad I decided to add "her" to our learning time. (According to my 4 year old, Ziggy is a girl).

I am using AAR Level 1 for my 5 year-old and we've both enjoyed the program and I've seen tremendous progress in her. I knew the Pre-Reading for my 4 year old would be great, as well. She is so smart and verbal but she still doesn't recognize all her letters. This is becoming a favorite part of both our day, learning and laughing together. I use Ziggy each and everyday, even if the guide doesn't have her listed to be used. N just loves her so much I can't go a day without her. She loves to hug, kiss and laugh with her. This is a great curriculum!

This product is great! I've used it with 4 children 3 and older and they all love it! Even children one and two will come sit in for parts! My son, who is one, gets very excited when he sees it! They LOVE Ziggy. I would totally just go for the deluxe if you can! It's worth it for the ease. Everything fits in the tote; you don't have to try to find a zebra puppet; and the puppet that comes with it is great quality. Best puppet I have! If you want to start to reach reading, bht feel a bit overwhelmed, you can't go wrong with this!

Excellent curriculum
This is the only reading program that has worked for me and my kids. It's fun and I like that it's easy to teach. I'm currently using the pre-reading with my 3 and 5 year olds and they love reading time!

Working well with my daughter who shows signs of dyslexia
I bought this for my kindergartener who wants to read and have a curriculum just like her older brothers and sisters. Even though she knows her letters and most of the sounds, she is showing early signs of dyslexia (inability to rhyme, inability to recognize medial and sometimes even final sounds). She is my 7th child, and this is the first program I have found that incorporates phonemic awareness. Phonemic awareness is foundational for any child learning to read, but dyslexics need extra instruction in it. I find this program valuable because it meets her need in creative and sometimes challenging ways, while reinforcing what she already knows. We do add other phonemic awareness activities in, because she needs it, but I imagine the program would be perfect as-is for most children.

For me, the most mom-friendly part of the program is the card set and box to file them in. The cards are already perforated. It was so easy to set up. I also like the manual. I appreciate the scripted lessons. I also appreciate that there are only 78 of them. That gives me the flexibility to organize them how I want through the school year, unlike programs which have 180 days of scripted lessons.

For my daughter's part, while she enjoys the whole program and often asks do it, Ziggy is what she loves most. She asks for him to show up at her other lessons, and he often does. :)
October 22, 2016
Loving It!
My five year old LOVES Ziggy! This is an engaging, well written, straightforward and easy to use prereading program. Much of it seems pretty easy to pull together yourself, but I especially appreciate the games written to play with words and sounds, developing phonemic awareness.

Is the Interactive Kit (magnetic letters) needed for the pre-reading program?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. You will use a box of cards for the Pre-reading program that comes with the program. There are also two posters included. My daughter especially loved Ziggy the Zebra.
Does the Deluxe Pre-Reader kit include the Activity Box?
Danielle H on Sep 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does include the box. The deluxe kit has everything you will need for the program including the puppet, Ziggy the Zebra, which is my son's favorite part.
Is this the newest edition of this kit?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I believe it is. I am now on level 4 with my first son. AAR is an excellent program & my son is an excellent reader now. This program develops strong readers!

    Does the Deluxe Pre-Reader kit include the Activity Box?
    Danielle H on Sep 30, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does include the box. The deluxe kit has everything you will need for the program including the puppet, Ziggy the Zebra, which is my son's favorite part.
    Is this the newest edition of this kit?

    BEST ANSWER: I believe it is. I am now on level 4 with my first son. AAR is an excellent program & my son is an excellent reader now. This program develops strong readers!
