I have a 4 year old (soon to be 5 in 2 weeks) who LOVES to learn. He knows how to write his name, all his shapes, colors & letters. I am wondering if I should start him on phonics. I don't want to push him but he is frustrated he can't read. HE can sound things out but has problems with combinations of letters such as ch, sh etc. Does anyone know of a good phonics system or books that I can do just to introduce him to reading with no pressure? Something that lets him read at his own pace?Answer Question
hooked on phonics it's a great program spendy but very well worth it, I use it with my four year old, we did it a few times and he has been spelling things out and does letter combinations.

My niece and nephew both did the phonics program they both read above there grade level, my niece reads way over 120 words a minute and she is in 1 st grade, it's a very good program.

I recommend Starfall.com. It has both sight words and phonics. It also has simple books. My kids both loved it at 4 year old.
