The free online trial of Reading Eggs gives parents of young children the opportunity to try the Reading Eggs product before they purchase a yearly subscription. Reading Eggs is a learn-to-read product for children ages 3 to 7. Reading Express is a similar tool for children 7 to 13.
Reading Eggs begins with the playroom for children ages 3 to 4. The playroom allows very young children to have fun and get acquainted with the program. At age 5, children begin the reading lessons, which start with learning the names and sounds for letters. As children advance through the 120 lessons, they learn the skills necessary to read at a second grade level. Older children beginning the program take a placement test to allow them to skip what they already know.
