I have a kindergartener and I am interested in accelerating his learning to read. I am looking for recommendations for or against the Hooked on Phonics Program. It is quite expensive and I am wondering if it is worth the investment. I have checked the web site, but haven't found any mention of this program. bookworm mom

I can not say enough about how happy we are with the Hooked on Phonics program. Our 5 year old was having some trouble picking up letter sounds (on top of challenges with attention and focus), so we purchased the program (got it on ebay for almost half the price). Within two days, doing about 15 minutes a day, he had mastered the letter sounds. We've been doing it consistantly for the last 5 weeks and he's reading nearly 200 words. It's fun, and we enjoy doing it together. I've noticed a big difference in his confidence too. We're hooked!
