This is a great concept to help teach children to read.

Rating: Four out of five Doves -- The Dove Foundation, September 2005

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids and Parents will Love It! July 12, 2005
By Shauna
I think its great that the video has stories with real children - we live in an animated world so this is such a refreshing change - and the kids love it. The kids in the video are being kids and having fun - doing what kids do best. I gave this video to my friend's children and one mom said that she's never had her two year old watch a video in its entire length until Read-TV. I watch the kids interact with Read-TV; they laughed, they said the words during the interactive part and the kids refer to it throughout the day so its staying with them as a learning tool. It captures kids attention. I love the bouncy words. It's an eductional tool for kids of all ages and parents will love it too.

WOW - this is a definite purchase for anyone who has young children. My children, who are one and four love to watch the other children learning and exploring on the video. They are not only hearing the words but seeing them in print and specific movement across the screen. I noticed that the creator of this fantastic video is a mother herself, which reinforces the learning opportunities, as she knows what interests children and captivates their attention. I also think that this would be very appropriate in the school setting for primary aged children. Being a teacher myself I see how television can be used in an educational setting and why not use a learning opportunity like this, instead of a cartoon where no specific learning may occur. Children are captivated by television, and this video provides entertainment as well as education! I would defintely recommend this video for all children!

5.0 out of 5 stars read tv June 24, 2005
I work with children of the age 0-6 years teaching literacy

I work with children who may have barriers and be at a low literacy level

I am thrilled to see educational videos on early literacy

This video or dvd is colorfull and fun

The events are nurturing and humorous about everyday children and life activities

My favorite thing about Read TV is the calming environment and appealing tones of all the characters

This is very important for children who may have fasd / fase

The pace and transition of the stories very well planned

Every child will love Read TV and be able to identify with

simple childhood pleasures

I have it in my collection and I love it so much that

we presented a video to our community ROOTS OF EMPATHY BABIES this year who pioneered the program in our schools for the first time

READ TV captures the connection of milestones , meaning and language development for early childhood development

Yeah!!!! I look forward to more

4.0 out of 5 stars Bold and fun April 13, 2006
Fabulous! Accessible stories that engage instead of pander. Simple, colourful scenes that children can relate to and enjoy, with animated words that reinforce meaning. I love the down-to-earth feel of these videos. Kids these days are bombarded with deafening volumes and over-the-top special effects (even Winnie-the-Pooh has been reinvented with psychedelic CGI and scary story lines), yet children thrive on gentle stories with strong, comforting storylines. Big dog; splashing stones with Grandpa; muffin-making with Mum -- all gently captivating. I was particularly interested to see my 5-year-old step-grandson (who is autistic and generally not attracted to video images) fascinated by the colour segment; he watched the whole thing, repeating the names of the colours.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME video!!! May 22, 2007
By Neo K
Awesome video that actually helps a child learn how to read.As mentioned by others it's very interactive and provides an opportunity for a child to re-tell the story he was read. We can't wait for a second volume to be released.
