Designed to promote independent learning, the WhizRead app for iPad helps kids from kindergarten through grade 12 become better, more confident readers. As young readers read a passage, with just a tap, they can interact with the app to hear how words are pronounced, read in-context definitions and examples, listen to related sounds, and see related images and videos – all in one place.
I frequently encounter new words that I don’t see often. I am able to quickly learn all about the word without looking it up in the dictionary or searching for it.

This is a great tool for my students from other countries. When I try to explain a word or phrase, I can immediately show them a picture instead of trying to explain it with words.

WhizRead is helpful for my son, who is more of a visual and auditory learner.
– Parent of a fifth-grader
My daughter reads really well, but I feel she doesn’t fully understand what she reads. This app can help her with that.
– Parent of a third-grader
This is a great app even for established readers because they can learn new words and phrases along the way and improve their reading skills.

I like that everything’s in one place: I can ask the app to read for me, I can see images and I can also hear audio. I don’t need to look words up in a dictionary, or search for images or video clips.
