My daughter is five, and while she showed an interest in reading, she just seemed to have trouble "getting it". We discovered she is very right brained and learns best with games and pictures (a visual/kinesthetic learner). Enter Ooka Island Adventure, my daughter loves it! She asks to play it every day and plays it for 30-60 minutes at a time. I see an improvement in her reading ability and her recognition of whole words. I like the Ooka Island Lighthouse, made especially for mom and dad. This tool is used to check how much or how little prog...(more)

Fantastic reading program! My son actually asks to play OOKA Island. His reading skills are already improving from using this program. We started using the program at the end of September.

We recently renewed our subscription to Ooka-Island, so this is the second year we've been using it. It has been very helpful for my 7 yo autistic granddaughter. Seeing her continue to progress & the joy she experiences is worth much more than the cost of the subscription. Thank you for giving her that!

I have used Ooka Island with my two girls who are 6 and 4 now. I am currently on my third annual subscription. My girls couldn't get enough of it! They loved the captivating graphics and themes. Their favourite learning game is Alphabeth Mountain. The least liked was The Cave of Sounds. Overall, a great programme.

My 5 year old son Loves Ooka-Island. He asks to do it everyday. The sound cave has really taught him to listen for sounds and he loves the Free Play.

My kids love playing it. I have recommended other to use this program. My daughter loves the popcorn library.

My three children have enjoyed using Ooka-Idland. One of my favorite things about this program is that they have to complete a certain amount of "work" before they can play around in the non-learning areas.

I can't even begin to tell you how much my kids LOVE this program. I have 2 struggling readers and one (the youngest) who seemingly teaches herself how to read. It is a fight to get my 2 older daughters to read. As a mom it makes me so sad that they hate to read. And my youngest daughter (in kindergarten), who reads very well, is watching all the negativity around reading from her older sisters.

Ooka Island has changed all of that! Each child has her own account, so they can progress at their own rate. And they are having so much fun playi...(more)

Purchased an Ooka Island subscription for my 4 and 6 yr old daughters after trying the free trial. They love to play this game, and are highly motivated by earning "ooka mist" to spend on their avatar.

I like that the time spent on Ooka Island by the student is structured--activities are chosen by the computer with limited free time at the end. I also like that it is circular review and building on what they did before.

Ooka Island is easy to download and use. I have asked several questions on their instant chat feature of the website ...(more)

We had run up against a brick wall after using Reading Eggs for a few months. Apparently, my son had managed to guess too many correct answers and was "in over his head." His reading progress was at a standstill. Enter Ooka Island! While it has fewer distinct activities than Reading Eggs, it seems to be designed a little better in terms of preventing kids from advancing via good guesses. In addition, the program "reads" a book with the child at each level, prompting the child in context-based expectant reading and requiring the student to corre...(more)
