We just LOVE Ooka Island! My daughter is a visual learner and learned all of her letters and sounds through watching Leap Frog Letter Factory, but was having a hard time with blending the sounds together. She is only just 4 so we are in no rush, but she has fun learning, so I wanted to keep it going somehow. I tried other things but everything just seemed boring to both of us.

But she just Loves Ooka Island. It rotates through games to keep from getting boring, but is progressively building bit by bit on skills. The games teach so much mo...(more)

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

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)

My little one loves Ooka-Island! We have been struggling with her being able to concentrate long enough for a 10 minute lesson, so we wanted to try a new approach. She LOVES it. Asks to play her game daily, and enjoys every minute of it. Not only has her concentration improved, but her speech! Her verbal skills have improved ten fold since starting playing the game. I have also seen an improvement in her reading skills, she has learned all the letters and most of their spounds. I love that we have found a program that has given her a love for l...(more)

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.

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 were so happy to have a trial to Ooka island to switch up our daily routine! My daughter, who Is 5 years old, really enjoyed it and was sad when our trial was over. Looks like I may have to look into paying to continue!

My daughter is catching up quickly to grade level. I love that there's a placement test first. Their customer service is *excellent.* I also recommend the free workbook that goes with the software. It's a bit repetitive, but it's getting the job done.

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

I purchased this for my 8 year old son that has a reading disability. He loves it! I use it as a supplement to other curriculum. It is great because it gives him independence that he doesn't get with a lot of other reading activities. I like that it starts and continues at the level where he is capable and really accomodates his needs.
