Re: GOOD books to help a 5 yr old learn to read

I used Hooked on Phonics for my son. Absolutely love that program. I also supplemented with Bob books and Scholastic's phonics readers. Both are great, bob books will probably be a little boring to a 5th grader...the phonics readers would probably be better. After the phonics readers then get the leveled readers and go from there. We have the Reader Rabbit Learn to Read System software and my son loved playing that too. It's a great game and it's excellent for learning the sight words. Also, my kids loved Leap frog letter factory and the talking words helps make it "click" about how the letters work together to make words. All great supplements!
