The plans are easy to follow. And we are enjoying working through them. It’s been fun to work on letter recognition together.

Not a fan
I bought this to help my 5 yo learn her sounds better and for a start to beginning reading. I'm only half way through the program and I already do not like the order in which this curriculum is being taught. You don't teach the concept of syllables and compound words BEFORE a child can even sound out a three letter word by themselves. It makes no sense to do this when a child doesn't even have basic reading skills. The daily coloring pages seem boring and monotonous. The cards that go along with the rhyming games need to include a lot more variety! Don't use all the same exact pictures 3 or 4 days in a row. Maybe use half of the familiar ones and half new ones. No game is going to be exciting for that long if you're using the same cards every time. Outside of the rhyming games I thought the other games didn't do anything much to advance my child's concept of reading. She either was frustrating because she couldn't grasp the concept or bored. Also, I could have easily produced those letter coloring pages and made my own cards for a lot less than $80. I don't even pick up the teachers manual anymore because the curriculum is that predictable.

I taught my first daughter how to read with the Christian Light Learning to Read and Language Art program. I'm going back to this with my current daughter and will use this program as supplement so I don't feel like I completely wasted my money. The CL curriculum is so much more thorough and fluid. It's teaches reading through a smooth process and is usually not boring. It isn't colorful and full of games though, either. Since I can always incorporate games on my own this isn't a big deal.

Pretty good
My daughter really enjoys the Ziggy the Zebra interactive parts but tires of the coloring sheets week after week. Maybe a little more variety in the activity sheets would be fun?

Simple, concise, easy to follow program with out a lot of fluff. I am using to re-inforce my apraxic daughter's phonics before moving on to actual reading.

We've had such good success with out older son using all about reading that I thought I would start out our next son with all about reading from the beginning.
Molly B on May 16, 2018
This is a great program and same price as listed on their site. I saved shipping when I ordered through Rainbow.
Katharine M on Apr 27, 2018
I've used both the Level 1 and 2 with my other kids and they have learned so much!
Stephanie A on Apr 21, 2018
This sounds like a a very good pre-reading program. I like that there will be little preparation involved for me as a busy parent. I will be able to review lessons ahead of time and then be able to start teaching. I won't have to gather extra materials to use this program.
Sheryl K on Apr 9, 2018
All About Reading has been a blessing for my 8 year old son who struggles with some dyslexia and attention issues. He loves the curriculum. I purchased this for my 4 year old daughter hoping for the same results.
czech12 on Apr 6, 2018
My older sons have had great success with other All About Learning curricula, their little brother is itching to start school! This will be his first exposure to formal reading lessons. We're excited to get started!

After several reviews, I felt this company would best suit my families needs.
Debbie W on Mar 11, 2018
I have a granddaughter who has used All About Reading and her mother said this was a wonderful way to teach reading. Therefore I am purchasing this great reading program for more of my grandchildren. 😊 Love the free shipping!
Nancy S on Feb 26, 2018
My eldest daughter is using All About Reading, Level 1, and it has been a blessing. She's learning to read and has really enjoyed the program. Due to our eldest enjoyment and success with the program, we decided to try the pre-reading level for our middle child.
Grace G on Feb 8, 2018
I have used All About Reading, levels 1 and 2, with my other child, and it was amazing. My child, who has severe learning difficulties, has been able to learn to read with this program, and now I am hoping to use it with one of my other children. It takes only a few minutes each day and is very easy prep.
Jennifer D on Dec 26, 2017
I was recommended this program for a homeschooling mom at our Classical Conversations community day.
Lori M on Oct 20, 2017
Strongly recommended by a friend. Looks like a great, comprehensive reading program for preschoolers and beyond. I ordered through Rainbow Resources to save on shipping :)
Anna B on Aug 10, 2017
I am a first time homeschool Mom. I didn't know where to start my Kindergartener with reading. I've heard great things about this curriculum. When I called with questions I was able to talk to someone right away. They answered all my questions and concerns. I am very excited and confident that this is the curriculum for us.
Annie C on Aug 9, 2017
Taught my daughter to reading using this program and now using it again for my son.
Julie K on Jun 18, 2017
Curious to try this for my preschooler as her older sisters are in levels 2 & 3 and she'd like to "do school". I feel she is old enough to try.

I chose this because I am planning to use it as my daughter's preschool at home curriculum
Christina S on Apr 13, 2017
I love the idea of a multi-sensory program with cute animals to teach reading. Also, My kids will feel so much older reading books that read like chapter books instead of the short readers we are used to.
Charissa M on Apr 9, 2017
I didn't use AAR Pre-Reading with my older children but I wish I had. We started using All About Spelling and AAR around level 2 with the older children and they are wonderful. I learned spelling rules that I never learned.
Aimee D on Apr 7, 2017
I love All About Spelling for my older child, so I want to try method this for my preschooler.

Because I have used All About Spelling and it's great! I know this will be great too.

I've loved what AAS and AAR have done for my older kids that i want to start earlier with my younger kids.
Brook B on Oct 14, 2016
I have loved the ALl About Reading program for my older daughter (she is 6 and is half done with level 3). My four year old has been begging to learn to read, so I thought we could give the pre-reading level a try for her. She is very excited to try it!

I am a big fan of their spelling program and I used All About Reading 1 with my daughter. I am looking forward to using the pre-reading curriculum with my 3d child. I chose it because it works, it's fun and it's all there for me and I don't have to go looking or printing stuff (no time now that I am homeschooling 3 kids)

What is the difference between the basic and deluxe packages?
User on Feb 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’m pretty sure the deluxe kit just adds the tote bag and puppet? It’s accessories only. I bought the puppet in addition because it is a pretty integral part of the program, as well as one of the more entertaining aspects. I never have found a use for the tote.

Happy pre-phonics!
