I love that we were able to do a free trial first. It only took me about 30 seconds to see that it was a good fit for my son, who is 5 and learning to read. He asks to play it often, and I've noticed his reading has improved quite a bit.

My 4 year old loves Ooka Island! He has already learned many of his phonics sounds and is eager to learn more. The bonus printable activities on their website are also fun for him. Ooka Island is teaching him much more and much faster than our traditional curriculum workbooks. I purchased the full version after the free trial ran out.

I purchased Ooka-Island for my 7-year old son. He is an emergent reader and I was hoping this would be a fun way for him to get some extra practice and solidify his skills during the times I'm busy with his older brothers. At first he LOVED it. After about 3 weeks the newness has worn off, which is to be expected, but I also felt that we might not be getting the most out of the program. So I finally checked out the parent online supplement (Ooka Island Lighthouse). I was surprised at how much relevant information was there. I could see wh...(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 4.5 yr old son is obsessed with ooka island. He was already reading on a 1st grade level but the program has helped solidify his foundation. He considers the program a special treat and loves being a "hero". Their phonics system is very comprehensive and fun. It is a reward you can feel good about giving at the end of a challenging homeschool day.

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 purchased Ooka-Island through a GroupBuy. My 5 yr old loves it! At first she was frustrated because she couldn't play in the playground when she wanted but once she got used to the rotation she was fine with that. I like the idea that they have to finish their lessons before being able to have free play but I wish the time she spends in the store would not count as free play. (Maybe it doesn't have to but we haven't figured it out yet.) I am very happy with Ooka-Island!

We have really enjoyed this product. We've had a couple glitches, but the Customer Service took care of them right away. Even over Easter Weekend! So I was impressed. My daughter really loves using this program, and I'm so glad we got it. I only ordered the "free trial" for my son, since I knew it would be too easy for him. And he still enjoyed playing it for a week or so! My daughter (8, dyslexic) uses it almost daily.

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

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.
