"My Daughter who is 4 loves to play "Go Fish" with us and is learning many of the sounds herself. Thank you for such a fun and successful program!!" —Debbi, Fresno CA
"I have been so PLEASED with your program. When I bought it, my then-4 ½ -year-old son was reading sight words in the Hooked on Phonics program.
We put all that away and went through your program from start to finish, and got through it in about 3 months.
He is now 5 ½ years old and reading at a 4th to 5th grade level–and he is a fervent reader.
“My 3 ½ year-old son has been doing your program for about 4 months, and he is reading non-phonetic words.
While others at age 3 are still learning heir sounds and letter shapes, my son is reading and LOVES to do so.
I recommend your program 110%, as the results speak for themselves.”—
Julie, homeschool mom, Las Vegas, NV
“I want to say a huge thank you for Rocket Phonics. Our daughter was 4 and in preschool 2 ½ years ago when we purchased it.
Well, she just finished the book and she's reading wonderfully.
She loves to read, especially at our family Bible reading time at night.
She really does read like a 4th grader. Thank you so much.
We're looking forward to using it with our two little boys as well.” —
My 4 1/2 year old is really catching on well (with Rocket Phonics) and loves to sound out words.
For Valentine’s Day he surprised me with a card with my name on it!
He had sounded it out and wrote it all by himself!
He loves to play Bingo and Go Fish, and sounding games throughout the day.
Thanks for your help.” —Kari-Lynn, Alberta, Canada
My almost 4-year-old has been SO excited as she's been able to read words.
She asks constantly for more reading lessons and walks around the house with a book all day "practicing."—

"My kindergartner is already starting to read signs on the road.
It is so much fun to see his eyes light up when he gets it.”—Micki R, Springfield, MO
“After only a few weeks of instruction of Rocket Phonics lessons, our daughter loves to read, and is the only child in her kindergarten class who can read.” —
Stan and Patty, private school parents, Vista, CA
“Rocket Phonics is one program that I can use with ALL my kids. I have FIVE children ages
3 – 11; my 5-year old amazes people with her reading ability, and even my littlest, who just
turned 3, asks to do his ‘phonics cards.’ I found the program easy to use
from the ‘get-go’. I also love the included Play & Read Cards – the pictures
on them are actual photos.
Another benefit is the authors of the program make themselves
available by email and phone.
“I have used a multitude of different phonics programs
only to NOT get the results I wanted. I am so impressed with this program that I have even
started a yahoo group so others that either already have the program or those who want to learn more
about it can go to the group & have some support. Dr. Guffanti, the creator of the program,
reads and replies to the posts as well. I have never felt as good about any program as I do about
Rocket Phonics! I tried Rocket Phonics because my 11-year old was barely reading on 3rd grade level.
After using Rocket Phonics from Sept. to the end of Jan., my 11-year old is now reading at early
5th grade! ”—Patricia M, Los Banos, CA
“My 7-year old son was having difficulties in his reading. We started
Rocket Phonics last September and I have seen much improvement in his ability to read as well as
his confidence to try. When I began to run into challenges with my 5-year old daughter and her
letter recognition and sounds I chose to do Rocket Phonics with her too. I do both of my
children together and it works out great. Jessica learned her letter recognition and sounds
in 2 weeks. I was so amazed.” — Marilene D,Calgary , AB
“Rocket Phonics is the most thorough and compact program that we have ever seen
for remedial instruction. We can see that it would address the needs of children of
all learning styles. This method works so well with older children who have struggled thus
far (through grade 6), that it should be used to prevent remedial problems by teaching it to
all children age 5 and up.
Its spiral-bound ‘reader’ contains activities
like BINGO, and its stories are specially coded to help the beginning reader learn to
correctly pronounce words. Rather than teach English by rules, little cues are placed
underneath light gray letters. Because the cues are taught with cards until they are learned,
the struggling remedial student very quickly begins to associate the sound he makes with the
light gray letters it replaces. The Rocket Phonics kit also includes a neat little Rocket Peeker
that helps the children focus on one or two words at a time, instead of being overwhelmed by a
whole page of print.” —Elizabeth S, B.Ed, remedial consultant, and homeschool
parent, Alberta, Canada
“Rocket Phonics has been great for us! My son, who is 5, and in kindergarten,
went from only letter recognition (with no letter-sound knowledge) to reading at beginning
1st grade level in only five months! We just had his reading assessed, and it blows my
mind that he picked it up so quickly. Rocket Phonics really helped me, because I
was very unsure about teaching reading, and nervous that I would not be able to do so
adequately! Thank you! You really helped us out!” — Chris B,
“My 5-year old had been reluctant to go through the process of
learning to read until we tried your product. After three sessions of game playing and
one session working on blending sounds he is now successfully reading three letter words
(and some four letter words as well).”—Chris D, Seattle, WA
“I pulled out Rocket Phonics to use with my 5 year old. The 2nd grader
saw it, asked if he could do it too... and after just a couple lessons, I'm already
seeing his reading improve. He LOVES it.
“The 5 year old too... .It is
really a lot of fun, and it is so easy. So, I guess I am now working through the program
with TWO boys. And the three-year old wants to join in as well.”—

"Our daughter Allison was looking at repeating kindergarten.
We decided to try Rocket Phonics. She loved the lessons and developed an enthusiasm
for reading. After just two months, Stanford standardized assessment testing
placed her in the 90th percentile for reading in her age group." —

“I love to use Rocket Phonics in my Rocket Readers classes at
Greater San Diego Academy because the games keep children actively engaged, the
curriculum is easy for me to use, but most of all because it’s so exciting
to see the great strides in reading I see children make. Here are some typical examples
of student progress I have witnessed: Robert W. is 6 years old 1st grade.
His mother has home schooled him since kindergarten using Abeka. He gained approximately ½
of a school year in only 5 weeks!
“Braden C. is a 6-year-old
in 1st grade who was home schooled in kindergarten, using Sing, Spell, Read and Write.
Braden gained one year in four months of lessons with Rocket Phonics.

remarkable program.” — Patty R, Rocket Readers Program Director
“I’m just amazed at how well my son did with Rocket Phonics. We
finished Rocket Phonics in one school year, and I’m thrilled because my son, who turns
7 tomorrow, is reading chapter books. And his comprehension is good!—Debbi T,
“We are using Rocket Phonics with my dd, who is 10 with dyslexia. She is doing
very well with it! Yay!!:) The treasure hunt games are a favorite around here!! My dd and ds (6)
really get into it! I love watching siblings be so cooperative and having fun together…
and they are learning to boot!! Doesn’t get any better than that!:)” —

"Abel S. is a 10-year-old 4th grader who has been in public
school until this year. He has been diagnosed with learning disabilities and ADHD,
and has had an IEP every year. He comes to class once a week and I have had 3 one-on-one
tutoring sessions with him. Abel gained one year in four months with Rocket Phonics.
I attribute my students’ success to Rocket Phonics. Rocket Phonics is truly
a remarkable program.” — Patty R, Rocket Readers Program Director,
“The program has been totally awesome. It’s helped me be more confident
teaching reading. It’s so easy and it’s so simple and it’s cost efficient.
You can use it with all your kids.
“My eight-year old son was really
struggling with reading; he used to cry every time, and wouldn’t read in front of anyone.
Last week he actually took a book and read it to us!” — Victoria B,
“My son Joshua loves it! What a blessing! I also played the game of sounding
out things we saw as we were driving in the car. It seemed to work immediately
with blending sounds. We recently did the treasure hunts ...wow he loves
“I seem to talk to a lot of mom's of boys
who have a hard time teaching phonics, reading, etc. to their boys. I tell them
about Rocket Phonics, that it is an awesome learning program for boys!!!!!”—
Rosie B, Hazelwood, MO
This parent came to us at the St. Louis fair
this year, four months after she wrote. She said, “I am here for one reason. I want
to introduce my son Joshua to you. When we started Rocket Phonics last summer, he was 7;
hated reading and was really struggling. Now he is 8, and he loves reading and he loves
Rocket Phonics. He is reading at 4th grade level.” Joshua spoke up: ‘I just
entered a Speech and Debate contest and took second place!!’ My child has been
transformed from a struggling student to one who confidently excels!”
“I have used ‘Professor Phonics,’ “Scaredy Cat Reading
System’ and ‘Ball, Stick, Bird.’ After all these my 12-year-old son
was still struggling with reading. We started Rocket Phonics two months ago, and are
already seeing success. He finds the prompts especially helpful. Thank you so much for
taking the time to call and talk with me. It was an encouragement!” —
Cheryl Trundy, Collettsville, NC

me to use this program because it really works!’"—

"He kept asking to read more! Usually he is asking ‘How much more do I
HAVE to read.’ Tonight he was saying, ‘Please, just one more, just one
more.” … His eyes are doing much better with the blue and gray printing.
He loves the silliness and has decided Rocket Phonics is fun.”—Janet C, Caldwell,

"I worried that this would negatively effect my daughter's spelling. I've
actually seen a different result though. Her spelling is improving because she has gained
an understanding of what the letters do in different cases. These reader books are really
improving her ability to read and I'm shocked by her improvements in such a short
time."—Heather R, Coweta, OK
