I purchased Ooka Island after using the trial and because my daughter requested it. My daughter is an older struggling reader who was tired of other programs seeming what she called "babyish". When we first found Ooka Island my daughter was thrilled. She finds it fun to use but yet it is still very educational. I was very happy to see it here on the Homeschool Buyers Co-op. We are very pleased with this product and will continue to use it.

I purchased the Ooka Island for our 4 yr old grand daughter. She gets bored with only paper learning items. immediately loved it. I am amazed at how fast she navigates around all by herself. She wants to "do her school" as she says everyday. She asks me, I don't have to ask her. Highly recommend Ooka

There are a lot of reading programs on the market, and it is hard to know what makes one particular program special. If you have a child who is struggling with hearing how sounds make words, then Ooka Island is ideal. My 4 year old daughter loves playing the games, reading the books and, particularly, earning the awards. It is a delight to watch her dance around the room yelling, "I'm a champion!" after completing a challenge. I highly recommend this program.

My daughter has really enjoyed the Ooka Island program. She started with very little knowledge of letter sounds and now, a few weeks later, knows many sounds and is almost ready to start reading. One of my favorite components of the Ooka Island program is a game (Cave of Sounds) that encourages the chlidren to listen for a particular phonetic sound. I believe that this was the key for her. Ooka Island has many activities to keep a young child engaged in learning and, after completing a certain amount of "guided" play, children are given their c...(more)

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

My kids are having so much fun with this program! They like unlocking the pets and compete with each other on how many books they have read! My middle child (6) had no interest in starting to read before this program, but now she cannot wait. I actually will tell them that we need to move on and they need to stop after 45 minutes!

Thank you for offering this program.

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)

We love Ooka Island as part of our homeschool curriculum! We are using it for our pre-k son who just turned 5. He would sit and "play" Ooka Island for hours if I let him. My older daughter, age 7, is jealous that he gets to play the game and she does not. My younger daughter, age 2, loves to watch him play and mimics the sounds (which is a super big side-bonus because she is significantly speech delayed due to cleft lip/palate). Although my son is still in a pre-reading category, he is definitely able to answer questions about sounds and le...(more)

We like Ooka-Island. I originally intended to use it with both by 5yo/K son and my 8yo/3rd son, but the 8yo finds it too slow. Its well-paced for the 5yo, and I like that they tell me that he has mastered certain sounds. We're not schooling 100% this summer, but more hit and miss. He does ask to do it, and it holds his attention when he uses it.

My 4 year old loves this game. She will spend hours (if i let her) playing this game...which is funny because the graphics are not the best and she doesn't like to play video games.
