Description from the packaging.

Teaches reading through sound and song!
5 original sing-along songs also play on your audio CD-player!

With Kid Phonics, your child will progress from hearing sounds to actually reading words! This interactive multimedia environment is not only fun, it provides the auditory experience necessary for reading. Talking creatures, toe-tapping music, realistic sound effects and amazing animations encourage children to join in the experience of reading and sounding out written words!

With Kid Phonics, your child will learn to read by:

  • Sounding out over 200 words.
  • Differentiating among letter sounds.
  • Finding words that rhyme.
  • Determining when words sound the same.
  • Connecting sounds to clusters of letters.
  • Building clusters of letters into words.
  • Spelling correctly.
  • Building a personal dictionary.


  • Digitized speech.
  • High-resolution graphics.
  • Over four dozen classic children's songs and nursery rhymes.
  • Five original musical compositions.
  • Ten exciting picture galleries.
  • 150 animated, sound-enhanced objects for click-and-explore fun.
  • Three levels of program activities.
  • Customizable, printable Word Builder dictionary.

Stop off at the playroom to hear the Sound Buster serenade! A host of musical creatures present five original toe-tapping songs- perfect for singing along!

At the click of the mouse, children hear the sound of a letter or letter combination. Next, they arrange the sounds in order to build the word- and before they know it, they're reading!

Questions based on rhymes and classic folk songs encourage children to listen and learn. Correct answers transport kids into one of ten interactive picture galleries where they'll have click-and-explore fun discovering new words and sounds!

Kids can click on the Sound Busters to put their dictionary words into serious or silly sentences, then color the matching picture and print out the page for their own personalized dictionary.
