Footsteps2Brillance Review & Giveaway

I was given the opportunity to check out the Footstep2Brillance learning app. The app is an academic language program for students. Boogs and I really enjoy reading together, but I am always trying to find ways to encourage his love of reading independently. Footsteps2Brillance has been a great tool to encourage Boogs to read by himself.

The app is very easy to use. Boogs has his own sign-in and password screen. He was then able to access 18 interactive books. Boogs had such a great time pressing on different parts of each page in the books to see the animation of the objects. At first, he mainly spent his time doing that or playing the games that came with each story. After the first week, he became interested in really trying to read each story. If he got stuck on a word, he merely tapped that word and it was read to him.

The app is versatile. It was easy to download and can be accessed on our iPhones, iPad, and computer with the same login.
