My daughter turned 4 in July, and has completed all the lessons in this course. She is currently on Book 2 in the red book series and will no doubt finish all 10 books quickly. She reads anything and everything she can get her hands on now. About a month ago, I called and talked to one of your representatives who said that a more advanced course was in the works that would follow up the Learning Dynamics course. Is this available yet? Could you contact me when it becomes available? Todd
I am Gena Suarez, owner of The Old Schoolhouse (Calif). I called you a month and a half ago and asked you to send the Learning Dynamics Reading System to my daughter, Julia, age 4, so we could review it for our next issue of The Old Schoolhouse Newsletter. Well, you were right! Julia is reading already! In fact, within the first TWO WEEKS, she was putting simple words together - I have to say, I am IMPRESSED. The review we did for you was EXCELLENT. We are getting ready to go to print and we will make sure you get a copy of this issue. In it, we said that Learning Dynamics Reading System is the BEST reading program we have come across yet. And then, we went on, about how Julia liked it (GOBS!) and how well she learned. It is a VERY nice review. Thanks so much!! Gena
My mother in law purchased the Learning Dynamics Reading System for my 5 year old. The program was fantastic and we had awesome results in just a few months. Thank You, Michele
For a while my then 3 ½ year old son (he turned 4 this February) knew his alphabet and wanted to learn to read. My husband and I have never discouraged our son from trying something that he wanted to do, even if we thought it might be too hard for him. We simply said, "Well, let's give it a try." With that in mind, after hearing your radio advertisement, I made the call and ordered the reading program. With a money-back guarantee, how could we go wrong?
My son began to read after only 3 weeks on your program with a mere 15 minutes a day, 3 times a week! And it didn't stop once the lesson stopped! He tries to sound out everything and most of the time he does so quite successfully. Our kitchen table is covered with white paper every time we eat so that we can draw and play tic-tac-toe while we eat. Well all of that has changed! My son doesn't want to draw anymore; he wants us to write words for him to read. He even writes a few of his own, since your program also gives instruction on handwriting. I am amazed at how much he retains and applies.
And you should see his face when he reads one of your books! He grabs me and hugs me while he shouts at the top of his lungs, "I can't believe I'm reading, Momma!" Learning Dynamics Reading System has given me the privilege of giving my son one of the best gifts I have ever, and probably will ever give him-the gift of words. Knowing that I was his partner in this wonderful discovery is one of my proudest moments. As a writer and an avid reader, I know that this gift is something that my son will treasure for the rest of his life.
I also need to mention that having a reading specialist keep in touch with me to inquire about our progress and answer any questions that might arise has been a nice bonus. Melanie thought I have only talked to you once, your upbeat personality and genuine interest in Jacob's progress meant quite a bit to us. Thanks for your persistence!
I ordered the program for my son. We have been very satisfied with it, it is an outstanding program and we love it. That is why I am writing, he is on his last book, and we'd like to know if you have another series that we can purchase? He loves reading your books but still gets discouraged with his stories because they are longer. If you don't have another series, do you have recommendations for books we can get at the library? We started sometime in Jan. (He turned 5 in Dec.) and can read your last few books well. Thank you for your help.
My 3-year-old son and I just started your program and he loves it. He can't get enough of his new "reading program." He sings the alphabet song all of the time. We couldn't be happier or more impressed. Thank you for creating a product that makes learning so much fun. I will let you know now well he progresses.
Jennifer, a very satisfied mom
I bought your product a couple of weeks ago and my 3-year-old daughter LOVES it. We have been doing 5 to 6 lessons per week because she just HAS to do her lesson. I think the program is great so far. We just completed the lesson on the letter D last night. The blending lesson was a little hard for her at first but we have continued to practice it each night after her regular lesson and she is doing much better...
I just think Learning Dynamics Reading System is awesome. I purchased the program back in May of last year and my son is doing great. About 2 months ago I was telling my husband that I didn't think my son was paying much attention because he would see words over and over again and would continue to sound them out and not know them by sight and no sooner did I say that he now sees words and knows a lot of them by sight. We are kind of taking it at a slow pace, but he's doing great. I actually sent two other clients to you in the past 2 weeks. Thanks so very much.
We have six-year-old twins. The Learning Dynamics Reading System was the best thing we have ever done for them. We started them on the program half way through kindergarten because we didn't feel they were learning to read. After 3-4 weeks doing the songs and workbook they were both reading the books. They couldn't wait to come home from school everyday so we can learn to read! My daughter was so excited about the whole thing, she didn't understand the sounds that the letters should make and after a few weeks it hit her like a bolt of lightening!! She couldn't wait to go to school and read to her teacher. My son told his teacher about the 'phonics game' and asked her if she could buy the CD and the books for the whole classroom. Now I am starting my 3-year-old daughter on the program. I am sure she will feel the same accomplishments and gratification of learning how to read as my twins did. She is very excited about the whole idea of starting school at home with mommy and learning her ABC's. Now my twins are in the first grade and they both are reading and comprehending at a high level in their classrooms. It is nice to see them not struggle with homework and reading assignments.
Hi, I purchased the Learning Dynamics Reading System program 2 ½ weeks ago and my husband and I have been very pleased. My four-year-old daughter has already started to read the first book and retained how to sound out the words. She was so proud of herself, she read the book to her doctor today. Her doctor was very impressed, especially because she's only four. My two year old is also sitting for the lessons and retaining a lot of it. I told various moms about this program. I also feel the program is very easy to follow and the tips are very helpful. Thank you very much, my husband and I are very excited about our little ones getting a head start with their reading.

I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know how your program worked. My daughter started the program back in July. She liked it right away. When I came home from work she would ask "can we do a letter tonight?" When she understood the vowels she really took hold of reading your pre-books. Well, I'm happy to say she is doing really well in school. She's one of two children who can read at this level. This week she read a 30-page book by herself that we took out from the library. I think this is quite amazing at age 5 years and 4 months. I can't thank you enough. I look back and can't believe I was actually skeptical. I've told others about the program...
[In a separate note, Dean writes:] I spoke to one of your staff yesterday. About an hour later my wife called to tell me that our daughter just came home from school and she had received today the "Principal Honor Award" for reading. Wow!!! Out of ten kindergarten classes, four children were chosen to read in front of the principal. Elizabeth was one of them. I still get teary-eyed just thinking about this. A huge thanks to you and your staff at Learning Dynamics.
I give your product rave reviews. When I first heard about the Learning Dynamics Reading System I was quite skeptical. However, my 3 and a half-year-old grandson have completed the first set of books and have started the second set. He is the only one in his day care class that can read. Your teaching methods are wonderful. I am a very proud grandmother.
Our son is on his sixteenth lesson and is reading and sounding out words like stamp, dinosaur, seal, etc. We can't make enough trips to the library to keep him in reading material. Everywhere we go he is sounding out signs he sees along the way. We are very pleased with the Learning Dynamics Reading System. Thanks for bringing books alive for our son.
Mr. and Mrs. C.V. Jones
My name is Verda Rogers Johnson and I am the teacher and administrator of the Christian Co-Op Nursery and Rainbow Days Pre-K. We began using the Learning Dynamics Reading System in August of 2001 and all of the children were reading by December. We love the songs, and the characters for each letter! As a teacher, it is the joy and interest the children take in learning that I feel makes this program such a success. They can hardly wait for me to introduce the next letter! The books are wonderful, offering a variety of skill levels and the lesson plans are well designed.
I am thrilled with Learning Dynamics and will continue to use it to promote reading in our classes.
Thank you for your support in this endeavor to educate young children.
As promised in our telephone conversation yesterday, her is my assessment of the Learning Dynamics Reading System. It is wonderful. As parents are supposed to be the first teachers of their children, I am so appreciative of your program. It has taught me how to teach my son in an uncomplicated, less stressful, fun way to begin his journey of reading. I purchased the program in July of this year. We are now finished with all the short vowels and are beginning the long vowels. I thank you for allowing me the pleasure of teaching him to read and for the sense of accomplishment he feels as he completes the different parts of the program. It is a special bonding time for both of us. When he gets older, I know that he will look back at this time we are spending now together and remember what I have done for him to try to help him. I would not have known just how to approach this kind of teaching but this program has made it simple and to the point. I would say to anyone who wants to give their child a real head start in reading and self confidence, which is so important as they start to go out into the world, this is the program to follow. Thank you and my son Matthew thanks you. I have an eight-month-old son that I will use this program for and I'll need a new workbook when time comes.
Thanks again for making this available for all the parents who want to send their kids to school with a strong foundation for learning. This is definitely the place to start.
We are ecstatic about the program! Our daughter turned 4 last week and we have been doing the program for 2 days now. Our daughter loves it! We have to do 8 lessons a day or she will have a fit! She is already reading over 70 words. I just wanted to write and let you know that we appreciate what you guys are doing for families.
I purchased your program when it just came out. I have some friends who would like to buy and more that I am working on. You'll be glad to know that both of my older children are reading well because of this terrific program and they love to do it. I am amazed at how many parents leave it to the schools to teach their children to read and if they enter 1st grade not reading, they are upset. It makes me feel so good that I have been able to benefit my children and use your program. It is simply the best out there!! Please let me know your thoughts on the matter of my selling for you. Thank you,
I was given the Learning Dynamics Reading System about a year ago by my parents and I used it on my daughter. Now, she loves to read and is way beyond the other kindergarteners. She used to listen to the music CD all the time and now it is ruined. I want to get started on my nest daughter, but I just don't know what to do with out the fun music. Can I purchase another CD? Please let me know.
I purchased the Learning Dynamics Reading System when my son turned 4. My husband and I both have demanding, high-pressure careers, in addition to parenting, and I am also in graduate school. With all free time being very precious and valuable, it is important to balance the family time with fun and learning. Learning Dynamics has made this possible.
The Learning Dynamics Reading System has worked so well in just a few short lessons, I am impressed! My son is reading and sounding out words with ease. When he began his preschool class in September, I told his teacher that he could read. She gave me a smile as if to say "yes, all parents think their children can read at this age, but they have just memorized some favorite book." Within a few weeks, they were commenting to me how advanced my son was, and they could not believe how well he was reading. In the last two days, I was approached by the director of this school and informed that they would like to move my 4 year old to the kindergarten class, because he is much more advanced than they had realized. Much of this is due to the commitment I have made to educate my son and the fabulous program from Learning Dynamics.
I have always taken an interest in my son's education. Often it is difficult for me to know where to start, but the Learning Dynamics Reading System made it SO easy for me. The lessons are just long enough and very well thought out. I must admit, once we finished the letters, my son lost interest in moving ahead. We took a very long break before beginning the long vowels. I did not like the length of time we removed ourselves from the lessons, but I did not want to push him to the point of rebellion and non-interest. When his teachers began telling him how well he was doing, he came home and asked that we continue with the lessons. We are now beginning the second set of books and he is so proud of himself. It has really contributed to his self-confidence.
Thank you for your program, it works. I have recommended it to friends and will continue to do so.
Hello, I bought your Learning Dynamics Reading System, and my almost 3-year-old daughter is nearing the 16th book. I know there are additional readers to help reading past the second grade level, but are there additional phonics rules included? It's been a long time since I learned all those rules, and I while I know what words say what, I don't always know why or how to teach that concept to her. I need Learning Dynamics help!
I would like to take this opportunity to express to you how satisfied I have been teaching the Learning Dynamics Reading System to my children ages 7 and 4. It has been rewarding as a parent to witness the progress they have made, and it has been a delight for them to learn the content. I am so pleased to tell you that the concept of this system really proves to work for beginning readers. I have to share with you how well it has worked for my 4-year-old son Connor first of all. He had had the basic introduction of the alphabet through my husband and I, and at his preschool prior to starting your products. Once we got started he was so excited that both he and his sister requested 3 lessons the first day! The first week we went through 15 lessons and we hardly slowed down! We are just starting the long vowel lessons. I am also proud to say that he has read all the blue books and half of the short vowel orange books with minimal to no assistance. He proudly says, "I can read!" My 7-year-old daughter Shannon has also enjoyed this experience, and I also feel that her enthusiasm has helped her younger brother participate. She has improved her reading at school by reading Learning Dynamics books. She has moved up 5 levels at the rate they are leveled in the First Grade at her school. She is currently in a level 13/14 and needs to be in a 16 by the end of the school year. I predict that with the tools she has learned through your products she'll be comfortably ready for the Second Grade. Thank you for allowing me to purchase some of the products that I have requested. I look forward to spending more time with my children as they learn to read. I am interested in more educational products as my children advance with their reading. Again thank you for your cooperation and thank you for making such a positive difference in our lives!
I have the Learning Dynamics Reading System. I love it. My son is only four and his is already able to read two of your books. I am interested in getting the lesson manual for the consonant blends and digraphs. The program I have does not have it. Please let me know if you sell it separately
