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)

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)

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!

I originally planned on purchasing this for my first grade son but he lost interest quickly. However, my 3.5 yr old daughter LOVES it! She is learning so much its amazing. I'm excited to see what she learns in the year we have it.

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)

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.

Our daughter's loved Ooka Island! It is fun, colorful and engaging. There is great diversity in the games which keeps it interesting for young learners. I highly recommend doing the trial offer first and seeing if it would be a good fit for your child's interest. Greatly appreciate that they offer a free trial....

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 son loves this and after a month he's already reading simple sentences. He started out only wanting to do free play but now he gets excited to start new books.

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.
