What Makes Our Phonics Program Special?

With over 1 million books downloaded, we’ve helped thousands of kids learn to read more effectively!

Every child needs phonics for reading so make sure your child can learn the sounds with the best phonics program available!

The Most Phonics Sounds

We teach more phonics sounds than any other phonics programs – 57+ sounds and more coming soon! Kids will have so much fun learning vowel sounds and consonant sounds with our funny videos and digital books!

Fun Characters & Stories + Digital Devices

Your child will have FUN with interactive books, videos and songs! Each book comes with a video and song, so your child can reinforce knowledge. Access on any device, anytime!

I downloaded this to read with my 4 year old. We had a lot of fun and he was super excited while going through it. Will download the other Kids vs Phonics books now to read to him next.Emadrak
I have a 1 year old nephew. He is talking (mostly makes sounds). I watched the video on the letter x and it definitely emphasized the sound of the letter x. I intend on downloading more free books.RashaYu
