    I love the hooked on Phonics kit. I started my 5 year old on the K level 1 and she was able to read the first book in 1 week. I also love the DVD which goes over the letter sounds for a review before we started the program. highly recommend it.

    My daughter loved Hooked on Phonics and has been a voracious reader ever since. The program has flashcards, audio tapes, small readers with large print, workbooks, and sticker charts. The multisensory approach worked well for her.
