My granddaughter absolutely loves Ooka Island! I love that there are lessons that go along with the reading levels!!

My kids are really enjoying Ooka-Island. I did the trial subscription while on vacation and the kids played every day and even watched each other play. Once home bought it and the kids love it. I had purchased Click N Kids but by son got bored and didn't like it. This has nice music and fun games to play while learning how to read. Its a win-win. Plus the discount through the Co-op makes it worth it. Not sure if I would have paid full price but the discount makes it worth it. We try and do every day.

I have been using this with my four and six year olds, and it has been a huge hit! It is entertaining, which makes them want to keep playing, and they are definitely learning. We had previously purchased Explode the Code, and I think this is a much better product. Much more exciting and fun, but still educationally sound.

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.

My 6-year old reluctant reader enjoys this program. I like that there are online workbook materials that we can print and use off-line too. The program took a long time to install, will not run on our 7-year old computer, and has very slow choppy graphics on our 1-year old computer. Probably a new high-end computer would work better. My daughter doesn't seem to mind the slow graphics though.

My daughters have used Ooka Island for over a year now, and they both love it. The free play mode elicits a moment of excitement when earned, and they love the feedback that comes when they complete a new book. When they realized the subscription had expired, they dramatically lamented over the loss, so I promptly renewed!

My son enjoys playing Ooka Island. Some activities he likes more than others (of course). My favorite for him is the cave of sounds. He seems to really pick up the various sounds there. Wouldn't you know this is his least favorite activity though. We did free trials on both Reading Eggs and Ooka Island simultaneously. I let my son choose which one he wanted to go on with and he chose Ooka Island. I would for sure tell others about it. This is a great learning tool!

I purchased Ooka Island for my 7 year old son who is not reading yet and really has little interest in the process for reading (he simply wants to be able to read). I have two older sons who are fluent readers and are active on the computer. After reviewing this program, I felt it would fill two things - one, my son could be on the computer without the need for someone to read for him so he would feel like he gets computer time too, and second it would take him through the process of learning to read with more fun that just looking at letters...(more)

WE have loved this program. My 5 year old twins ask to play it all the time. It is probably the best program I have found for introducing so many different steps to learning to read. It covers letter sounds, letter identification, sight words, consonant blends and vowel blends, reading comprehension, and more. I was a little nervous about the price but it was well worth it and I would definitely do it again.

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.
