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.

As a parent I love that the box has a variety of materials for him and I can just use this and get him to read. I also tried teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons but that was very boring for him. i did use that book's approach for phonetically pronouncing each letter of the word and that speeded things for him as with just HOP he was only pronouncing the phonics of first letter and it was frustrating in the beginning to make it click for him. We use alpha phonics book for extra practice and also make him read the words he can in the story books we read to him everyday. His progress has been good with HOP. I do wish it came with flash cards for the helper words though so it will be easier to work with the mastery of those words. I will be buying the kindergarten set next... Much cheaper than kumon and other approaches.

My youngest started this just before he turned 3. He could only stand to watch the dvd's which we did almost daily but forgot to watch often enough. We didn't bother with the workbook. I couldn't tell if he was learning anything because he didn't speak much and was hard to understand, but we watched the videos until he went through it all and we got the first grade set. Shortly before his 4th birthday he was watching my oldest, first grade at the time, do his language arts online. A five letter word appeared on the screen and to my surprise he shouted out the word before his big brother could. I was so excited I shouted for my husband to get upstairs. This went on several more times. My husband pointed to the word Africa on our puzzle map and asked him what it said, my little guy looked at it a few seconds and then plainly said "Africa" as easily as if he could talk the whole time. The mistake I made was to switch to "teach your child to read in 100 days", which is actually excellent as it worked wonders on my daughter, but my youngest son is either stubborn or impatient to learn from a book. It felt like we were trudging through mud because he could be so resistant and obstinate at times. He could read he just didn't want to. What can I say? I was trying to save money. I am now using hooked on phonics with him again and invested in the grade 2 set.
I love the little reward system and goal orientaion . All the section are well planned and intuitive for young brains. It was a little slow at first until he figured out the sounding mechanisms.
I would recommend getting a set of sight word flash cards to go along with this. The English language has so many irregularities phonetics only works about 70% of the time!
I'm based in Japan where my son doesn't have a friend or friends near who speak(s) English. So, I wanted him to get a better grasp of English phonics (his mom is Japanese), move on to reading in English (which he is doing fantastic for the past 2 weeks through the Hooked on Phonics Learn to Read), and eventually its writing as well. He's in a standard Japanese school where none or very little is done in English. One another thing, he also loves the special Amazon Bonus DVD. He sings and dances with the characters!! He loves to watch it at anytime he chooses.
The lesson arrangement: start with watching a DVD, then use the workbook to practice, then read the little books is a brilliant idea. I think using DVDs is a more appropriate way over a CD (unless you bought CD ones sometime ago). My son's is DVD-based.
So far, my son has really loved the lessons a lot. He even wants to do it alone and not wait for me! I feel it's a very worth investment. Of course I want to use it with an open mind. I'm also planning to soon order for the next level's (elementary school level 1 & 2) for I perceive my son will be done with the current one within 6 months or so.
I'm yet to try the additional online materials.
I highly recommend this product as a base or to supplement home-schooling materials.
