Wizz-e Review and Giveaway

I am amazed at what we can do online now. Growing up we did not own a computer. If we were lucky we got to us one once we got to High School. Now this generation has everything they want at their finger tips. Pretty cool and yet also scary as a parent.

One of the definite "cool" things my girls can do online is visit a new site called Wizz-e. Wizz-e is a site for electronic books. I was given the opportunity to have C play around with the site and give her opinion as well as mine. She really loved it. In a short amount of time she learned how to read a clock and was doing math addition problems.

Wizz-e books are very stimulating with bright colors, excellent illustrations and great animation. You see a book right in front of you. You can turn the pages, read at your own pace or click a button and the book will not only read for you, but highlights each word as it is read. Perfect for the beginner reader.

C's favorites are "What Time Is It", and "Simple Math - addition to 10". There is a simplicity to the books while still being forward thinking and complicated enough for kids to actually learn. Along with these books they also have games, wonderful story & nursery rhyme books, phonics and more. With 30 books in it's library there is something for everyone and every age. Another key aspect are the little quizzes at the end of each book. Your child needs to use his/her recall from the story to answer the questions correctly. Perfect for memory learning.

Pricing for the books run from 1.99-8.99. You can use them through their website or download them straight to your PC. They also offer a few free books for you to try. One of their books Hoop-la the Hippo just won the iParenting Outstanding Product Award for 2009! Congrats Wizz-e!

Now for the fun part...GIVEAWAY Time!

These are so cute!! It is very hard to choose, but I would probably choose some of the classic stories, like The 3 Little Pigs, in the 4-7 age group.

They really do have a lot of cute stories. I would pick: Add One Teddy, Hoop-La the Hippo, Floppy the One-Eared Rabbit, There was an old woman, and something else.
