In this ABC Reading Eggs review, I’ll share how we’re using this online reading program to help my daughter learn to read at home.
My kids are so different when it comes to reading and writing. For example, my four-year-old son loves to listen to stories but has no interest in understanding the words yet. On the other hand, my six-year-old daughter has wanted to learn to read since she held her first book!

It’s early on in their little lives of course, and we try to encourage both children to learn to read and write. My daughter is now in year one at school, so it’s much more important for her.
I’ll be honest though, apart from reading books to my kids, I knew very little about how to teach a child to read.
By the time she started school, she already knew many words by sight and could write her name etc. My mum, an ex-teacher, had helped me teach her those things as well as spending a lot of time reading with her too. So, I hoped we had given her a good start.
In her first week at school, they introduced us to ABC Reading Eggs for kids to learn to read at school or home.
What is the ABC Reading Eggs program?
The ABC Reading Eggs online reading program was created by expert Australian educators with over 30 years’ experience. It’s based on solid scientific research to give kids the best chance at reading success, with colourful animations, characters, songs and rewards to keep kids motivated.
It’s won multiple awards for supporting children to learn to read and has games and activities that young kids can access to learn at their own pace.
Kids use ABC Reading Eggs to learn to read in a fun and interactive way and at the same time prepare them for the structured learning they will experience at school.
What age is ABC Reading Eggs for?
It’s designed for kids aged 2–13 years old and they don’t need any prior reading experience to begin the program.
We have been following the program for 3 to 7-year-olds and the next one up is called ABC Reading Eggspress.

How to use ABC Reading Eggs
Here are some easy instructions to get started on ABC Reading Eggs and I made a short demo video where my daughter shows me how she uses it!
We’ve used a ‘test’ account for privacy reasons for this video and bear in mind she’s been using ABC Reading Eggs for over a year so she knows her way around now. She’ll show you how easy it is to navigate as she talks me through how she logs in and gets started:

Tracking Progress and Rewards
Parents can see how their child is tracking by accessing detailed progress reports.
Then after each lesson, your child gets a new ‘critter’ to add to their collection. Being able to collect critters is great for motivating them to keep going and earn more!
What we love about ABC Reading Eggs
For me, it’s the confidence it gives me – both as a parent and for my kids.
Having been worried that I might not have been doing enough to help her education, I now feel much more confident that I’m supporting her in the right way. She could use her ABC Reading Eggs school login at home to continue her learning.
It helps that she’s always had a passion for reading and using ABC Reading Eggs has given her so much more confidence and she progresses through the lessons at a great pace.
As well as learning to read, she’s also picked up skills in using an online platform that’s safe and secure for her to self-navigate. She uses either our iPad or the desktop computer to log in to ABC Reading Eggs, and the ABC Reading Eggs app is easy to use. You can also access the program on Android devices.
She loves to play the ABC Reading Eggs games on the platform as it gives her independence and it’s fun. Learning through play works for her – she enjoys learning but the games make it even more interesting. I think she’s also loved showing me how far her reading has come and as she used ABC Reading Eggs so much in her first school year, she loves showing me at home a bit of what she does at school too.
