Appropriate books are individually selected based on your child’s current reading ability, allowing them to achieve success whilst stretching them just enough.
The line your child is reading is highlighted as they speak, encouraging focus and fluency. It’s like having your finger following their reading.
Words are de-emphasised as your child reads them correctly, instilling an instant sense of confidence and achievement.
Incorrectly pronounced words are identified and spoken by Bookbot before your child can continue reading. No more guessing and getting it wrong.
Well-spaced print using black sans-serif fonts on light pastel colour make the reading experience as easy as possible.
Bookbot uses a phonics approach that has seen dramatic gains in UK reading standards from 58% in 2012 to 81% in 2016.
Bookbot is an app that supports your child as they learn to read. When you subscribe to Bookbot, you can download the app and access a library of specially-written ‘decodable’ books. Here’s the magic bit: Bookbot listens to your child as they read the books, helping them as they go.
Bookbot will guide your child through their reading journey. The first time your child accesses Bookbot, they will be asked to complete a screening exercise. This allows Bookbot to select exactly the right level of books for them to start with - it’s important your little reader gets to experience success at the same as learning. If they struggle with a word, Bookbot will highlight it and allow your child to try again or to get Bookbot read it aloud for them. Bookbot will guide your child in this way through the levels until they become confident, independent readers.
