Review for PlanetRead, Piedmont, CA, USA
What if your child can watch cartoons/animations and learn to read too!
With increasing exposure to smartphones, tablets and TV throwing so much colour and animation, the lacklustre backboards and books have jaded out in keeping the already short attention span of new learners engaged. PlanetReadâ€™s Same Language Subtitling (SLS) of film songs on TV and AniBooks with animated stories is a simple yet brilliant idea to help new learners and semi-literates acquire reading skills.
Eye-tracking studies in Europe and Rajasthan confirm that the reading of subtitles is automatic and inescapable. One tends to also read while listening to the song or story. It is indeed a win-win case for both parents/teachers and children alike. So go ahead parents, let the child have his cake and (you) eat it too!
