Rivet reading app provides over 3500 reviewed and categorized books for all reading levels using speech technology to train kids on how to pronounce words.
Making it a huge engaging kids’ friendly library. Children can tap on tricky words and the app help them read and identify.
“My toddlers have used Rivet for only a few days now. They enjoy the book library so much, and their vocabulary has increased.”
“My 6-year-old couldn’t stop at one book, she wanted more. She loves that they have youtube books by her favorite youtube videos. I love that it is timed and easy to use, with a microphone feature to boost the overall confidence of the child. This is a quality learning app.”
“Rivet is a great app and it helps my children read. One wrong thing is that I can’t block books I don’t want my kids to read. Other than that is app is great. You should download this app if you have kids that love to read but don’t have a lot of options.”
