About the Author
At Hooked on Phonics, 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 a child’s natural curiosity and support families and teachers as they help children improve literacy 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 skills, they also lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning. It’s our goal to make a difference in children’s lives by making learning fun and easy. That’s why we’ve brought together a dedicated team of parents, leading educators, interactive designers, writers, and artists. Through collaboration, research, and testing, we continually develop innovative products and systems that teach children not only to learn but also to love learning.

The materials included are a workbook, stickers, flash cards, story books, and a DVD. The DVD and flash cards are meant to reinforce the lesson learned from the workbook. The workbook itself has each letter of the alphabet on each page, practice on the next page, and after about 5 letters does a review. After each lesson your child can put a star on the page to show he's accomplished that letter. The sticker is the best part of the whole deal. The pages are extremely basic and something I could have either put together myself or printed for free off the internet. It shows a big picture of the letter and next to it offers several suggestions of activities you can do with your child to help reinforce teaching the letter. Then, it gives you space for your child to trace the letter and several pictures of objects that start with that letter. The DVD contains an alphabet song and then goes through each letter and the sound it makes. It's extremely basic and to me doesn't do enough to reinforce the lesson or even to teach the letter and it's sound. There's a Leap Frog video on Netflix that does a better job of teaching letters and sounds and doing so in a way that's memorable for a child.
I still go through the workbook and let my son watch the DVD, but I make a point to do other reinforcement activities and pages from other workbooks that we've bought in order for ensure he's really learning his letters and sounds, because this product simply does not do enough to do that on its own. While Hooked on Phonics may have gotten the job done in the past, it's coasting on its former success now and should be used as a supplementary tool rather than your main source for education.
