Preorder your Readeez Volume 4 DVD Today!

For those of you haven't heard of Readeez, it's short musical, educational video songs. In them, the words come up the same time that the child hears them. So kids are learning to read with them as well as concepts such as math, money, planets, etc. Readeez is working on a new DVD and have GREAT specials so that you get Volumes 1-3 and preorder Volume 4. But you only have a few days left to do it! 

For $10 you can preorder the digital download of Volume 4.

For $50 you can order the whole set to be donated to a family w/a child with Down syndrome or ASD.

For $75, you'll get the Readeez Volume Four DVD/CD set, signed by Michael Rachap, weeks ahead of the August release. Your name (or your child's) will appear during the closing credits. Plus you get the digital versions and the sticker. As well as everything in the Readeez Mega Bundle (that's 3 DVDs -- Volumes 1-3, 1 CD called Songeez and 6 digital downloads).

Estimated delivery: Jun 2016

Here's a sample:

Jett learned all the Presidents of the US as well as all 50 states by listening to Readeez. (I guess that's how--I didn't teach him!) It's also the perfect distraction while feeding your child supplements, getting a hair cut or getting blood work done. Yes, we've used Readeez successfully for all three.

So not only can Jett read, but he also has nice hair, a good nutritional panel and up-to-date labs. Readeez is pretty amazing!

Don't let this opportunity to support quality products for our kids slip from our fingers!
