Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5★ by 28reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by It works for my 5-year-old I have been trying to teach my girl (since she's 4 and a half) using Hooked on the Phonics for half a year. We are getting no where. She's frustrated; I am frustrated. It made her cry when I said it's time to do reading lesson.I decided to try other materials. One of my friends was using this book with her boy. So I think, hey, it's only 12 bucks (it was on sale when I bought it at Walmart.com), I will give it a try. We are 15 days into the program and I have to say IT WORKS! My girl now loves to do reading lessons. She's confident in sounding out words and is looking forward to the next lesson everyday. I am so glad I made the switch!This book is very easy to use. Instruction cannot be clearer. 05/09/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Makes it EASY for Parents to Teach Reading This book exceeds my expectations. I cannot comment on my child's reading success at the moment because we have only been using this for a few days. However, this is sort of a How to Teach Reading for Dummies book in my opinion. I don't have to review the lessons, just read exactly what it says for me to say in the highlighted parts on the page. Super easy. This makes teaching easy and stress-free. My daughter enjoys the lessons and she can stay focused because they are only about 15 minutes long, once per day. If you are looking for a book to help you teach your child to read, this is it. All you need is 15 minutes of lesson time each day. 10/10/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Awesome Product-Amazing Results I started using this book with my 5 year old and within a few weeks he was reading sentences and within a couple months he was reading paragraphs. This is a really great book and definitely worth trying out. 03/18/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Simple to use If you are looking for something simple to use with your child who is interested in learning to read... this is it. The lessons are short to keep a young one's attention, use visual tricks to teach different concepts (ex: make the letter smaller than surrounding ones when it is silent in the word), have lots of review from lesson to lesson, and progress quick enough where the child is learning to read simple words and sentences quickly. 03/08/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Best book ever for teaching children to read! This book has been amazing for my two oldest children. It fascinates me to see how they begin with such basic, almost boring steps, then progress to being able to read so swiftly. They feel a great sense of accomplishment in a very short amount of time. I am on lesson 20 with my third child and bought this as a gift for my sister for her children. Don't let the first few lessons discourage you, and stick to the dialogue in the book. It's well-worth it! They start reading "stories" after about 10 or 15 lessons, and it gets more and more rewarding as they progress. The printed dialogue makes that parent/teacher's job easy and keeps you from getting frustrated--just stick to the text and you're good! 07/12/2011
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Worth it I borrowed this from the public library a few times and then decided to purchase it instead. Well worth the purchase. My daughter is 4 and she is already starting to be able to sound out words and we are only on the 7th lesson. I highly recommend it for beginning readers! 05/14/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Teacher Recommended Easy to use and understand. 11/08/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Works! I have five year old twins and my son learned to read pretty much anything all on his own and my daughter has not been able to read anything. I am homeschooling them and wanted something that would help her to catch up, and something that he could also work through and be fun for him. We've been at this book for about a month and they both love reading time! I go through the lessons separately with both. It takes her longer, but she is reading! She is so proud and is learning! 10/05/2011
