Wizz-e online book review

Reading is a huge part of my life and I have always encouraged both of my children to read, read, read whenever they have the chance! I also love letting them spend time on the computer but often worry that it’s wasted time. When I learned of the online children’s book publisher Wizz-e I couldn’t help but wish it had been around when my children were small. Wizz-e’s mission statement isbringing the magic of books to life and it’s something that I believe they’re doing a great job at! The reading choices include award winning virtual books such as “Hoop-La the Hippo” books to tell time, “What Time Is It?“, help with math skills, “Simple Math – addition to 10” and even ones that deal with life events. The books can be viewed online or downloaded to your computer for access anytime. Once you purchase a title, it’s yours forever!

Though my 9 year old is a bit old for this site I still wanted to see what she thought. Pie read through a couple of books and a definite favorite was “When I don’t want to sleep”. She said that she really liked how the pictures on the pages moved and the voices were silly and fun. She also liked that she could either have the whole book read to her, stop it and read herself or click on the words and read along. Pie had fun doing the quizzes at the end and was excited when she aced them :) My little student loves to win! She thought Wizz-e was something her little cousin would really have fun with and I agree!

As a mom I loved that the books are so interactive. The pages are bright and colorful, the imagery is age appropriate and whimsical. The ebook interface is just simple enough for little minds to grasp, yet interactive enough for the older age range to still enjoy. I like that it quizzes the reader’s comprehension at the end in a fun way. I recommend Wizz-e if you’re looking for fun, educational activities for your child to do on the computer.

  1. My daughter is a little old for this too – but I think my sister would love it for my young nephews – I bet they'd like the Jungle Talent Show, Simple Math Addition to 10, When I don't want to sleep, Simple Math Subtraction to 10 – and since Auntie (me!) loves Gingerbread, gotta go with The Gingerbread Man!

  2. Looks like a great program, I'm not quite into the whole books on-line yet, maybe when my kids are just a bit older.

  3. I would like to have these five for our grand daughter. I'm sure she would like: Cinderella, The Gingerbread Man, My Mom has Cancer, and The Ugly Duckling.

    Either way, I enjoy the books and your website!
