William McGuffey was a philosopher, philanthropist, and public-school teacher in the 1800.  He wrote a series of reading textbooks that would be used primarily in public schools during the 1800s. The McGuffey Readers was original developed in 1836, and they are still extremely popular, particularly with homeschooling families.  Phonics and Reading with McGuffey is an adaptation of the original text book. It is a complete phonics and reading curriculum for beginners, with over 52 hours of lessons!  From introducing letter sounds to reading complete stories, now with the app, the lesson comes to life as a rich interactive learning experience!

  • Those apps are great, lots of fun for the kids.

  • Thanks! I had McGuffey readers for my kids. I home-schooled them at different times, and the ones I had for first grade and taught phonics to are much better spellers than the ones that went to either American or French school. My grandkids will enjoy this!

    • I admire home school parents! This is a great app for kids, home school or not. I tried a little more, like it even more. There are some small glitches, but are minor.
