I then went for the hooked on phonics and have had great success.
Jessica Lucero
My almost 5 year old loves doing this - she loves controlling the CD by herself and following along with the work book.

Our son started kindergarten able to (very slowly) sound out words like "cat". We tried the Bob books, but it just wasn't clicking for him. So we went ahead and bought this (HOP learn to read--not the deluxe edition)--sort of figured it couldn't hurt and might help a little.

Now, he is not what I would call an eager learner. Getting him to sit down to do the first lesson wasn't the easiest thing in the world. However, after that very first lesson, it "clicked"--and literally, within two weeks, he was reading just about every short vowel, three letter word you can imagine. More importantly, he LOVES this program and asked to do it almost every day. He zipped through the kindergarten level in about 3 months and *begged* to start the 1st grade level. We started that one in January, and he is now (three months later) about 1/3 of the way through the second grade level. We just had conferences with his teacher and she is *so* impressed with his reading skills. She actually said, "Wow!" and estimates he is at a late first-, early second grade level.

Now, all that being said, I did not rely 100% on this system to reinforce what he was learning. I bought the Nora Gaydos level 1's and 2's (he likes them SO much better than the Bob books--and so do I!) and I think that is necessary with *any* reading program. HOP gives you good books, don't get me wrong, but my son had them memorized in record time. So I would highly, highly recommend the Nora Gaydos books (or Bob books) in addition to any of the HOP reading sets because beginning readers need lots of practice. And, the Nora Gaydos books are awfully cute and often are quite funny, so he loved getting those out to practice (usually he reads one to us each night as part of the reading routine).

I purchased this program for my kindergartener. He attends an advanced school, where many of his classmates began reading at the age of 3. He was not reading at all, although he did know most of the letter sounds. In the beginning, my son loved the program. We were both amazed at how quickly he caught on, and began reading the words. He viewed the program as something fun to do, rather than being additional homework. This has now changed. Although I like the program, and admit that it has been beneficial in increasing his reading skills, the repetitiveness of it has sunk in. The program is set up in such a way that you basically do the exact same thing for each lesson, but using different letter sound combinations. Although I believe it is good practice to do it that way, it also makes it kind of boring. So now, according to my child, it is just another part of his homework, and not very fun. He does however, still receive great joy and motivation from being able to read the books after each lesson. So overall, I believe that the repetitiveness is worth the results. I was just hoping that the program would be more fun, since he is already inundated with homework from school. Tip: Common sense I know, but the program goes much smoother if you do it every day. This is not always possible with hectic lives, but I definitely see a difference when we skip a day or two. The good thing is that each lesson includes a review of previously learned words, so it is fairly easy to get back on track.

Hooked On Phonics is really the only thing you need to teach your child to read. my son has loved learning to with this program, and is trying to read every book he can find now. the program teaches kids in a fun way which is very important, and if he comes across a word he dosent know he keeps trying until he can sound it out correctly. andf if we need more help i just put in the cds which are included and it dosent take him no time at all until he pronounces it correctly. i would recomend this program to any one who is teaching their child to read. it is GREAT

The system is great, my 5 year old is set for Kindergarten after, only 6 lessons. The best part is that she's enjoying every minute of it. And I'll be using the kit with my 3 year old soon, and also with the new baby in a couple of years, so I consider it a money wisely invested.

We started with the "Your Baby Can Read" system and it worked great for my 3-year old. For my 4-year old though, it did not work as well, partly because he can't sit still. The "Your Baby Can Read" system was supposed to cover 6-8 months. We blasted through it in 5 weeks, with both the children learning all the words. My 4-year old son needed phonics though so we bought Hooked on Phonics. So far, it's been going great! It's a very sound method for learning to read. Using both together has been wonderful for both my boys.

I bought this on Amazon for under $44 dollars. This set really helped me teach 2 of my kids to learn to read. First I checked it out at the library and made sure they enjoyed it and liked the flashcards, cd and books. After checking it out I found a good price on Amazon. The books are still in good condition and I will use it for my third kid. It has lessons with reviews. They enjoyed reading the stories before going to bed.

I wanted to teach my five year old boys to read, but needed help mapping out a curriculum. Hooked on Phonics makes teaching children to read simple. The CD's guide you and your child through the process. It is amazing how quickly they caught on. This is a great product!
