Learn with Homer app review: teach your kid how to read



Learn with Homer by Homer is an app to make it easy for your kid to learn how to read, before he or she starts with this at school. The app was designed by the world’s top education experts and is specifically designed for children between three and six years old. This app combines all  the best early learning techniques into one easy way to teach your kid how to read, and as a parent, follow his or her progress on the app’s official website.

How Does the App Work?

As a parent, you will be heavily involved in your kid’s learning experience. You need to probably help your young one to create an account (which is already fun, as your kid gets to pick a hat and then a photo gets taken of him or her). After this, you need to accept the terms and agreements and you can create an account to track your child’s progression. From here it’s all on your child.

You can select multiple things to learn here on the world map, though only the initial Learn to Read lessons are open from the start. This is a great way to see how you and your child gets along with this app.


What is Included in the App?

Aside from these learning-to-read lessons, there are a lot of other options available on the world map. You can discover the world, with lessons about animals, the five senses, and sight and sound in particular. In Homer’s Clubhouse you can draw, record sounds, and see your board, which holds all your kid's creations. Then there is Story Time, which, as you guessed, contains stories for your offspring, as well as poetry, nursery rhymes, and folk songs. Lastly there is a hat shop, where your kid can change his or her Thinking Cap as well as take a new photo.

Parents can add a new user here, in case they have more children. You can expand on all these options by buying extra content in the app. This is locked by a question that a normal kid won’t be able to understand or answer. Extra content costs between $1.99 and $5.99, depending on the content you decide to buy.

Pros and Cons


  • Kid-friendly
  • Designed by education experts
  • Parent tracking
  • In-app purchases are locked



  • Kids might ask why some functions don’t work (as not all options are open in the beginning)



This app is fantastic to prepare your pre-school kids for what they will learn in school in a fun way. The app is clearly designed by professionals and the production value is really high. The whole app is voiced, so your kid can learn how to read by the guide monkey that will explain the use of letters in an easy way.

The in-app purchases are not too expensive.
