Important Note

Little Reader is not designed to replace anything, but to complement everything else that is available. We recommend giving children as much variety in learning as possible - teach your baby with flash cards, DVDs, and most importantly, teach your child to read with 'real' books! Each has its role to play, and each is different enough to give your child a different 'twist' to learning!
