Welcome to the Show!

Hooked on Phonics’ The Big Reading Show is an exciting new learning program for kids who are getting ready to read. Part-musical-variety-show, part-interactive-game, and all-fun, it’s an amazing app that will keep everyone laughing and learning—all the way from Ankle to Zither. And because it’s from the makers of Hooked on Phonics, experts in teaching children to read, you can be assured that it was developed using the latest research and proven early childhood learning principles.

Hidden beneath the stories and songs is a systematic kindergarten-readiness program that teaches Foundational Reading Skills. Every part of the show is an interactive exploration of letters, words, text concepts, phonemic awareness, vocabulary—everything a child needs to know before starting school.

Of course, from a kid’s point of view, it’s all about the songs, games, stories, and fun. You’ll meet Lou and Ella, a rhino and a parrot who are best friends and polar opposites, in addition to the rest of the Reading Show Crew, as they sing, dance, scramble, and stomp through thirteen amazing musical reading adventures. From Pirate Day, to Music Day, to Food Day, you’ll steer submarines to catch lost letters, sing along with the “Apple Ankle Alphabet Song,” play a Game with Your Name, and help out a poor bird who just can’t finish a word.

This new digital format is so musical, educational, and activity-filled, there’s simply never been another app like it. A perfect blend of learning disguised as entertainment, The Big Reading Show is ideal for preschoolers, (ages 2-3), Pre-Kindergarteners (ages 4-5), preschool and Pre-K teachers, tutors, homeschoolers, libraries, and of course families who want to share a love of reading with their kids, while reinforcing important pre-reading skills at the same time.

So download Hooked on Phonics’ The Big Reading Show and make today Explorer Day. It’s a game! It’s a show! It’s what every reader needs to know!
