Independent reviews and expert opinions

Bug Club has been used by many people, and the experts have reviewed it to show why it should be your reading programme of choice.


Tanya Byron, child psychologist

“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.” 

Watch our Tanya Byron Q&A session to find out more about what Tanya thinks of Bug Club, how to engage children and parents in their learning, and why she thinks technology has a part to play in bridging home and school links.


John Dabell, Teach Primary Magazine

"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".

"Bug Club is a great online reading resource that can be used in school as part of guided / class reading as well as at home by the children. The teacher is in complete control of the books and can assess the children´s comprehension skills too!"
