I taught 3 kids with 3 different programs.  I don't think I have a favorite because they seemed to work with each kid, and each kids needs were different.  For me, Teaching your child to read in 100 easy lessons was the most boring, but it still worked for my son.   My 2 oldest learned with the whole word method with no problem and had fun with it, each with a boxed curriculum.  One used Calvert, and the other went to public Kindergarten and used whatever they used.

We used Word Mastery.  I found it through www.oldfashionededucation.com and use it with McGuffey Readers.

I use Horizons K program from Alpha Omega and it's great! It also depends entirely on the child, though. Horizons has alot of writing (we skip over some). We used 100 easy lessons, but dropped it early on (after maybe 10 lessons). It was fine, and it had some good ideas we borrowed about "writing" sounds, but we just didn't need it.

I don't have a favorite because my only reader pretty much taught herself. I will have to pick one for ds soon.

I taught my son with Abeka its a great program with alot of charts, flash cards tons of work, while doing this for Kindergarden i was reading Bob books with my pre-k son and he learned to read as quickly as his brother but without all the extra work and it was alot more fun.  Once i saw that he was actually learning to read I did make a few flash cards for the words he was having trouble with but we made a game out of it.
