My 4 year old seemed to get the "phonics" of individual letters, and even the "books" we made together of simple words she knew, or learned as time went on (cat, mat, hat, etc-- with pictures of each).
She balked initially at reading these books........but she liked the easy reader system "reading" it to her......then she discovered she would get a ribbon for 4 book set she read.
Now, armed with a sense of mission, she went from reading individual words to reading sentences. She zoomed through the 3 set system (12 books) of the LeapFrog Easy Reader phonics kits in about 2 weeks.
So - never underestimate the power of a silky ribbon! :-) (or the kids that like them!).
Worth mentioning: We did not use the phonics "cards" that came with it.
We simply read the books with the reader, then without the reader.
After she completed the first set, i had her read the books herself without the reader. It helped her immensely!

My daughter drove 13 hours home after visiting for Christmas and this kept my grandson occupied all the way home. He loves it and it helped so much with his phoenics and much more. Highly recommend. My grandson was 3 years old.

This was a great deal..however I did not know it requires a leappad learning system to work ($60). No where in the description does it say that it needs the system to work. My twins (4) are very disappointed. We're hoping to find one at a local child's resale shop.....
