No it does not work. It does not teach them to read at all. It teaches them that when they see CAT, it says cat. This is not reading, this is just memorization. There is more to reading that just memorizing that CAT is cat. In fact, he can hurt their development to read later on.

As a reading specialist, I was upset when I first saw this commercial. Here's a link to what child development experts say about it. Here's another link to check out. By teaching children to memorize words before teaching them that each letter has a sound and that words are made up of letters, you are doing more harm than good. I feel bad for all the teachers that are going to have to undo the damage caused by this scam.
