  1. Your Baby Can Read

As the Editor-in-Chief at I’m going out on a limb telling you how this program has been beneficial with my child. I was given this as a present from my grandmother. I was apprehensive that it was a typical made for television product. I did some research and thought it might be fun for her to watch the video and show these flashcards. The videos aren’t over stimulating. It’s actually words on screen, followed by images of what each word is and music interspersed. I began the videos and flash cards about 6 months ago. I can confirm that from when I was 9 months old, my daughter could speak phrases she had learned through the videos. Later, at the age of 18 months, she was reading words from books, on flash cards and in the videos without ever seeing the images. People are commenting on her vocabulary on a regular basis. It’s expensive If you buy it from the commercials on TV that air every Saturday morning. I did not use the books provided along with the program. I do use the flash cards and videos every week. Today, Walmart has this basic plan for $69.00
