*Success Story*

My 3.5 year old Sd can read about 200 words, knows all her letters and can write.

My 21 month old Dd can read about 150 words and is learning the alphabet. 

*EDIT* 

To those of you saying it only teaches memorization, I wondered about this until one day I wrote a word my Dd had NEVER seen before, she looked at it and 2 seconds later said it out loud. 

You can all think whatever you want, but for MY children this program works. And they still prefer Your Baby Can Read to any of the crap on tv.

I also do not care that the company is out of business, I'm just glad that I bought the entire set before that happened

I thought it just taught them to memorize a bunch of words not to learn how to sound them out

I wouldn't waste my money, just read to your kid.  The company is also in financial trouble.
