We have bought your reading booklets now for the 2 academic years and have found them to be fantastic – they have transformed reading at our school, engaging parents and motivating the children brilliantly!

200 Words and Timed Tables Software-John GRIBBLE
Hi to Kluwell
A few months ago I purchased your Spelling program as well as the Times Table program. I thought I would let you know that my grandchildren, who I purchased them for cannot wait to get on to the PC to test themselves. I think that the whole concept that you have managed to setup in these programs is excellent and to think that kids actually want to spell and do their tables unasked by their parents, is amazing.
I would also like to congratulate you with the prompt attention you gave my order. I thank you for the opportunity of making this purchase and I wish you well in your efforts.
