Independent reviews

“I think Bug Club is a genius concept and I think it's genius in a number of ways. First of all, I think the simplicity of the concept is really attractive; you don't have to be technologically really savvy as a parent or the teacher, to be able to engage in Bug Club. What Bug Club does is give children the opportunity to have a really bespoke reading experience and that’s what I like about it.”  Tanya Byron, child psychologist.

"Bug Club deserves gushing praise for its design and innovation. This is a programme destined to lead the market and transform the way we teach reading from Reception to Year 2. It will help children get the best possible start in their reading journey and enjoy page after page of reading success. This resource will make you glad you became a teacher and if you aren't teaching Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, you'll wish you were". John Dabell, Teach Primary Magazine.
