There are a few pretty essential life skills you learn as a kid … walking, getting potty trained, not picking your nose, and learning to read!
I have 3 kids – ages 9, 6, and 3. My oldest learned to read quickly (she was so motivated!) my second child is in 1st grade and he is just starting to feel confident, and my 3-year-old, well
Learning Dynamics asked me to teach her to read with their program 4 Weeks to Read!
… Um, are you for real? She is 3 years old. Can 3-year-olds learn to read? I decided to throw caution to the wind, trust them, and give it a shot!
Here are the reasons I decided to go for it…
- The program only takes 15 mins, 3 days a week
- There are tons of powerful reviews from other moms online
- They have a 98% success rate (wow!)
- And if you happen to be in that 2% that doesn’t love it, use the 30-day money-back guarantee!
As I said, I thought she might be too young but what did I have to lose? Not a thing! Especially considering that 75% of kids read under their grade level. So giving her a headstart is such an advantage!

Our Experience with 4 Weeks to Read
The Learning Dynamics system comes with the cutest little flashcards and letter card that your child can hold while you teach the lesson. It’s the perfect way to keep their hands from fidgeting!
Each lesson has a guide for the parents, a story, and a SONG.
For us, the songs are where the magic happened! The songs made my daughter, Claire, so excited to “do her letters!”
Of course, consistency is the key. I tried to review with her often and make sure we fit the 15 minutes into our morning routine. The more consistent you are the better the results.
Did She Learn To Read?
Short answer, not yet. We are only a few weeks in and I’m excited to keep going! Because Claire is only 3 I feel like she needs a little more time and exposure. But, the 4 Weeks to Read program has helped teach her letters, attach the letters to objects, for
Did I mention THE SONGS!?!
Once I got the book set I also knew the more advanced books would also be perfect to help my son (6 years old) master blending sounds like
The Best Part
The best part about 4 Weeks to Reading is the ease of the program. They seriously have written everything out so that you as a parent don’t have to do anything but read the directions for each lesson!
There isn’t anything better than a smile on a child’s face when they know have conquered a new skill! Claire begs to do “her letters” each morning and I’m glad we have a fun program to cultivate her excitement for learning!
