About the Author

At Hooked on Phonics, operated by Smarterville Productions LLC, we believe that every child loves to learn, so we focus on nurturing that thirst for knowledge with products that are fun, effective, and easy to use. We respond to the natural curiosity of a child and support families and teachers as they help children improve reading, math, and study skills. We celebrate every success so learning becomes a positive cycle that kids will love to repeat again and again. We meet all children at their level, engage their imaginations, and help them climb to the next level step by step. Every achievement ends in a celebration of success, an elevation of confidence, and an increase in self-esteem. As children master reading and math skills, they also lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning. Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of children by making learning fun and easy. That is why we have brought together a dedicated team of parents, leading educators, interactive designers, writers, and artists. By collaboration, research, and testing, we continually develop innovative products and systems that teach children not only to learn but also to love learning. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

My son enjoyed the lessons and loves reading the little books at night before bed.

Frustrated by the fact that my 6 year old still wasn't reading, I took a friends advice to buy this kit. I'm SO glad I did! My daughter has had such a great time working with the program (which was a bonus to me) and she's now reading! Her Kindergarten teacher recognized she had gained 13 letter sounds and 6 points in spelling with just three Hooked on Phonics Chapters!

This is a progressive phonetic learning package with 2 DVDs that teach new words (and basics of how to read) in the program and a bonus DVD with animals, advise for parents on scheduling time to spend with your child(ren)without doing it all yourself!

A wonderful adjunct to teaching your child to read, expanding their vocabulary, teaching them basic words that are mostly 3 letters in length. Program 1 focuses on the first letter in the word and the 2nd program switches to changing the end of words (again mostly 3-letter words.)

3 DVDs, 2 workbooks for the two programs, and books your child can read themselves once they've learned the words in the DVD programs!

This is a cumulative learning program that focuses on learning by ear (auditory), by sight, and by writing. It is an entertaining program for kids of this age group.

There are also rewards (stickers) included, which reward you child for learning new words, and keeps it fun and rewards at the end of section are books that use the words they have learned!

The DVDs have words (other than the rhyming words) that are used every day in reading, such as he, and, the, etc.

A wonderful start for kids learning to read (I recall when my kids were young creating a lot of materials, and reviewing many work-books and readers that were cumulative - not an easy thing to do when you are doing this from scratch!)

The only things I see that I would add to the DVDs is sign language (which is being taught in many if not most schools now in the US.)

I would add a few things from real-world experiences, but this program is a great start for a beginning reader!

I am not going to go into detail about this software because many others have done so. But I will tell you this -- I have always been a skeptic about "Hooked on Phonics." Nevertheless, I wanted to get my son, age five, up and reading on his own. I decided to give this a shot, so I got it for Christmas. I told him that it was a new computer game with which I needed his help. I ran it with him the first time and while it is somewhat simplistic (maybe that's the key!), he blasted right through the first lesson and was really happy about doing so. He now asks me if he can help me more with "my game" almost every night when I get home from work. Then he asks if he can read a book to me before bed, rather than the other way around. If that isn't the mark of a successful product, then I don't know what is. I will say it again -- get it, right now!

Format: Paperback
We have the kindergarten set for my 4 year old, and she wasn't grasping the concept of blending sounds together just by watching the video and looking in the book. I feel like there's something missing for kinesthetic learners. Watching a DVD is not very interactive, and there's just not enough practice in the book. Sure, I could make her watch the DVD over and over again, but since it plays the words in the same order every time, she can just memorize the order of the words rather than actually decode them. And if she doesn't grasp the concept of blending sounds, then going to the book isn't going to do her any good. So, I came up with flashcards for her, and it has started to click. I will write the ending sound (-at) on one card, and the beginning sounds on other cards. When I introduce blending the beginning sound with the ending sound, I will sound each one out separately and then begin to bring the cards closer together while putting the sounds together faster and faster until they blend together. Then I will say the word. I do this with each word in the family. She usually wants to do this too, after we make all of the words. Then we're ready to play games. We'll play games where I will put the beginning and ending sounds together, and she reads them. Then we'll play another game where I scatter all of the beginning sounds out, and I tell her a word. She will find the beginning sound and put it in front of the ending sound. This is really the same idea as the DVD, except that it's hands on. I came up with this after a week of struggling with the DVD, and she started to understand almost immediately. I also wrote all of the words on a set of flashcards and I will flash the whole word and ask her to read it. This all sounds like a no brainer, but I wonder why H.O.P. doesn't include flashcards, or at least encourage the idea of making your own cards.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I think the best part of this set is that the pictures are colored. The DVD is pretty good, but it is not has good as the Leap Frog DVD Letter Factory. The best part is that you get a workbook and readers that work together, which is nice. I do think that the books could be made better. Unfortunately, I don't think the little readers are made to last (thin string as binding).

If you are planning to use this product for more then one child, you might have a small problem. Each page has a place for a sticker. Once the child learns the page you can put a star sticker (included) on the page. I have a different set from Hooked on Phonics which came with a separate sheet for the stickers. I just copied that one sheet and was able to work with two children at the same time.
