TOS Review ~ Kid Scoop’s Reluctant Reader Solution

Do you have a reluctant reader in your house? I do…and at times it’s frustrating to think that this child of mine does not enjoy reading.  But, let me tell you this new secret weapon that I have to throw at her, called Kid Scoop ~ Reluctant Reader Solution.


Have you heard of them? Well, neither had I until I was offered to review the Kid Scoop’s ~ Reluctant Reader Solution. I am just going to tell you now, it’s an awesome program!!!

"The Reluctant Reader Solution is designed to expand your child's horizons, jump-start their curiosity about topics they didn't even know they were interested in, and exercise different areas of their brain through age-appropriate puzzles, games, stories, and much more."

The Reluctant Reader Solution comes in 2 parts:


1. An E-book ~ downloadable PDF file (love, love, love this option)!

The E-book  part is a collection of 365 individual worksheets  bundled together on a magnitude of different topics.  Each bundle is grouped with 5-7 jam packed pages of activities like word searches/scrambles, fun writing exercises, and more that are sure to please any reader.  The best part is that they are delivered to your computer in a nice neat PDF file so you can print as many or little as you like.  A great thing in my book since I have multiple children.  There are an abundance of topics too, to include bubble gum, the International Space Station, Easter, Mother’s Day, germs and more! You can actually get a free sample of the germs bundle to check out here


online_edition 2. An online Newspaper for Kids ~ a subscription to a monthly online newspaper for kids called, Kid Scoop News Online that includes 12 full color issues.

Each issue has a monthly theme and  is chock full of information to read, games to play, experiments to do, and puzzles to solve.  Navigation is a breeze and you can find yourself browsing other, age appropriate, online sources that are linked to that topic and keep the learning happening. Does your child learn better by hearing? A handy feature included are the audio files for every page.  Print the whole edition or save it to your computer for later use.

Now, you’re probably thinking this has got to be expensive, right? Nope, it’s budget friendly for all that you get at only $97, roughly $8.08 a month.  Purchasers gain access to the kid and parent friendly downloadable bundles of worksheets covering almost 60 topics and the monthly 20 page, full color online Kid Scoop’s newspaper. And the best part is that The Reluctant Reader Solution is so confident in there product that they offer a 365-day money back guarantee.

I know it’s about that time that us homeschooling moms start thinking about next school year. If you have a reluctant reader, put this program at the top of your list…it’s worth its price and you won’t be disappointed!  We thoroughly enjoyed this program and I will continue using it through the summer to keep the learning going.  Sign up to get a month of ideas to make reading fun sent to your E-mail inbox for free here and follow Kid Scoop on Facebook hereBe sure to find out what other homeschooler thought over at the The Homeschool Crew Blog.
