A hit with our testers for it's wide age appeal. The Bugsby Reading System is manageable for very young, new readers while not being too simple for older, more experienced readers. This is so because the system allows the user to either read the story by pressing the pen to the page to have the words read to you, or you can choose to only press the pen on words you are unsure about. Parents liked the reading comprehension aspect of the system which involves questions about the story and the vocabulary. Start-up time is almost nonexistent with very simple instructions. For children on the cusp of really getting excited about reading, Bugsby is a great companion to really encourage them.
