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
