    Creative, well thought out story podcast!
    Great original stories with just the right amount of educational material for my 5y/o. He will listen to these frequently on stroller runs and they keep his interest well.

    Awesome podcast and reading box!!
    Not only does the reading bug have an awesome podcast, the reading bug box is amazing too. Always a personal note from Lauren and great selection of books. The podcasts are entertaining and also educational. My 5 and 3 year old love listening. Keep up the good work!

    OMG - Thank you Reading Bug!
    We’re in the middle of a cross country road trip with a 5 and 7 year old who love to talk. The Reading Bug is the only way to have a little quiet in the car. We’ve listened to stories repeatedly, and the content is both fun and educational. Thank you so much for the wonderful stories!!!
  • Lady and the Beasts
    So we’ve been loving Reading Bug. My kids listen and color on the floor while I do dishes. They’ve been creative and fun. This last episode about Atlantis however... NOT COOL. There are dark mermaids? And the scream? What the actual were you thinking? I’ve just had to talk my very solid seven year old down from a nightmare. Please do not let us down again.

    A nap time must!
    The Reading Bug is the only way I’m able to keep my 5 year old quiet and relaxed while his little brother naps! He actually looks forward to his rest time now.

  • Seoul mamma
    Fabulous edutainment!
    My son loves all of these adventures- and I love that it keeps him entertained AND learning during our long drives in the car. Thanks for the fabulous content.
  • Danielle98765
    Just discovered this podcast and it’s become a fast favorite for my 5 year old.
  • Lutfiya
    Absolute favorite!
    My 5 year old chooses this above all other podcasts we have tried with him and he can’t get enough! I’m thankful for the educational content and positive encouragement for the love of reading. He always asks if we can visit the Reading Bug store and meet Lauren, though we live in Virginia, we may just have to hop on over one day. Thank you so much!
  • obrienobass
    Better than TV
    My 4 year old really enjoys listening to the stories. We don't watch shows too often, so this is a great alternative and is super engaging. The performance element and songs add to the stories!
  • AIC84
    My 4 year olds love it!
    We recently started listening and love this podcast! My kids ask for it. High quality, educational, well produced content with amazing original music!
  • dancepunk
    2,4,6 year olds all love it
    My kids all love the reading bug. The stories are engaging, educational, and age appropriate. A great way to expose kids to lots of different and interesting topics (and make car rides easier)
  • mek123321
    Love this podcast but...
    My 3 year old son loves these stories. We listen to them over and over again in the car. In fact, it’s the only thing he lets us put on. As a parent, I love how educational but also engaging the stories are. However, I wish the story teller would give a notice at the start to inform the parent if there is references to cannons or guns. Also there is some language I would prefer my son not hear like whoosie. 4 stars because as a parent this makes me nervous every time we turn on a new story.
  • AliMVrbas
    We love the adventures!
    My seven year old son and two and a half year old daughter love listening to the reading bug’s adventures! It keeps our car rides entertaining and peaceful. Keep up the great work!!

    Worst thing or stuff
  • T&AsMom
    Car rides are peaceful and my daughter is learning so much!
    My nearly 3 year old has loved this podcast for the last 6 months at least. It's the only thing she ever wants to listen to in the car and she loves singing all the original songs. We also love the local independent bookstore. We are constantly learning new things about lots of varied subjects. So creative and original❀️
  • Kita_Banana
    Soooo Perfect for Homeschoolers!
    We homeschool our 5 yr old daughter and this podcast has been PERFECT suppliment to her schooling! It's fun, informative, and very well done. She is hooked now and asks for them every night. Thanks, Reading Bug!
