    We love the books, kids love to read them and practice their reading. However, for some reason I always have to restore purchases, and then re-download them to each of our tablets. It is very timeconsuming and I haven't figured out why this happens.

    My kindergarten son was diagnosed with dyslexia, and this app has been wonderful for him! The books progress logically based on reading level, which is surprisingly difficult to find. So often books for beginning readers are all over the place phonetically. If he gets stuck on a word, he can touch the text to hear it sounded out. I like that it asks questions throughout the stories to assess reading comprehension and that at the end of books they go over letter sounds and blends that will be coming in the next book. He feels accomplished as he moves up each level. It’s really been the best app we have found for him so far.

    I just got this app for my kindergartener to learn beginning reading. Great features for sounding out new words. Like someone else has said the reader management closes the app every time I try to access it. I get frustrated with how the pages flip because I use my finger to point to the word and it will turn the page to the previous page instead I wish I could turn this feature off and just use the arrows in the lower menu.

  • App Crashes When Pairing Jan 18, 2020

    By RedCaptin
    I love the books and have the paper copies. I was excited to get an easy to travel with option that has all eight sets. When I tried to pair my device with my children’s the app on my phone crashed and won’t let me back in. I have to remove it from my device and reinstall to get it to work, but it’s not paired. I purchased with the intention of using the teacher/student options and can’t. The books are amazing though! I’m just frustrated with the pairing ability.

  • Great books for K-3rd grade! May 12, 2015

    I love these decodable books. They teach letters/sounds and words step by step. It tells you exactly what to say when teaching news sounds and skills. The only problem is that the 'Reader Management' option closes the app every time I try to use it, but I'm sure that will get fixed with the next update.

    I have taught my four oldest children to read beginning at age four using these "Sam Books". Now I'm preparing my fifth child for Kindergarten and I was thrilled when I found this app. Now we have all of the reading books in color, in one place for a very small price for the whole set. It is so worth it! I love all of the features that the app has, from help sounding out words, to praise when they finish a page. Excellent app, thank you!

    We used this program to teach all three of our kids to read. Our first child was with the paper books. By the second set they were each ready to move on to bigger books by themselves. I can’t praise these books enough!

  • Great books, but app never works May 9, 2021

    By alizim3
    They do not keep up with the development of the app. So my app has not worked in over a year. I paid over $80 to purchase all the books on the app and only got a few months use out of them. I’m really disappointed because I love these books. Still trying to make contact with the company.

  • Wonderful Resource Apr 4, 2021

    By Tataa 2
    The books are so good that they are useful for all kinds of children. I use them with my regular students in the class and with the children that I tutor. They have been amazing when working with children that have challenges learning how to read.

    Perfect for my little brothers who enjoy reading and can't stay off the iPad. I did have an issue loading a book after downloading, but other than that it looks great.
  • Great App Oct 4, 2018

    By mouthyme38
    We really enjoy this app, but there isn’t a lot of instructions on how to do the audio recording and how to use the other features..overall it’s great!
  • Love Sam! Jan 19, 2013

    By Troy LaMont
    As a teacher, I love the series and use it daily. Now we have another way to help motivate our young readers and engage them. I like that there is a recording option, but wish they could record each page one at a time and then listen to the whole story recorded with their voices. I like the option to have it read to them and also touching the words to have them sounded out for you. Can't wait for more sets to become available! It would also be nice to allow page turning rather than click the arrows.
  • Love it! May 19, 2013

    By TrainerMomof3
    Motivating with stories progressing from very simple to higher levels, and the illustrations are in color. There is a recording feature; however, the recordings aren't saved. It would be excellent if the child could read the pages and then hear the entire story read aloud in his or her own voice.
  • Great app but no new books available Jul 2, 2014

    By Vangotaxi
    My son Loves the books he has read them all several times but there has been no new books since we first purchased the 3 groups offered. That was about 6 months ago.
  • Need more apps !!, Sep 6, 2014

    By Bassi boo
    Wish there were more apps to purchase so could continue to advance with reading skills. Not many reading apps as good as this available. Hope to see another set to purchase soon.!!

    Excellent right in line with what is expected for kindergarten. This is a great choice. It is cost effective and it provides the support that your child needs for kindergarten and beginning first grade.

  • Little problem Dec 24, 2013

    By Hoddam
    This is a really great idea as far as encouraging kids to read and understand , but I have a problem with that female voice, making sounds ,it does not sound appropriate to me this is a n app for kids not x-rated adult related .......I won't delete it , but I only make sure I put in in sentence mode not sound mode for my kid , pls change that female voice for next update, is just not appropriate.
