From the Publisher
Hooked on Phonics® was created in 1987 by a father whose son was struggling to read. To help his son, he developed a systematic in-home phonics program for children. Extensive television and radio advertising featuring the memorable 1-800-ABCDEFG® phone number and the catchy "Hooked on Phonics worked for me!" tagline helped make Hooked on Phonics a household name.
In the 15 years since, more than 2 million families and thousands of schools have turned to Hooked on Phonics for its growing library of educational programs, including reading, math, and study skills.
How Our Products Work
What makes Hooked on Phonics unique is that we use our proven learn-practice-play approach. We provide children with bite-sized pieces of new information in every lesson so they are able to master the new concept and achieve success every time.
The easy-to-follow learn-practice-play approach:
Learn: Kids learn a new skill or concept.
Practice: Kids practice the concept until they master it.
