Zoo-phonics® was born in a self-contained special education class!
We love Zoo-phonics®!!!!! In a little over a week, our boy, a 32-month-old with Down syndrome, learned all the signs and can now make almost all of the corresponding sounds. His speech therapist is elated and so are we! She says he is doing more and better work during speech therapy. He loves playing Zoo-phonics®

Another amazing success story!
Hello to all at Zoo-phonics®! I want to write and thank you for a wonderful product. Our son Hunter (pictured) has many disabilities that make learning very difficult. He has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, as well as Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and a rare eye disorder. He was getting along socially, and is such a

Now he is in Kindergarten and is reading at the 3rd grade level!
My son went to pre-school, when we lived in California. They were teaching Zoo-phonics there and he loved it! He caught on to it very quickly and basically taught himself how to read. Now he is in Kindergarten and is reading at the 3rd grade level!

Zoo-phonics is truly amazing!
Hanah and Sarah are 18 months old. As I was checking out of the grocery store, and holding Hanah, she looked at me and started saying “p”, “p”, “p” while moving from side to side in my arms. I looked around and found a giant penguin on the wall. She saw it and was telling

I am amazed at her progress in only FOUR SHORT MONTHS
I would like to thank everyone involved in making Zoo-phonics available for our children. I was questioning whether my child would ever grasp the concept of reading. She could identify only about eight letters. The concept that letters have sounds and sounds make up words was totally foreign to her. Then her teacher introduced Zoo-phonics

Wow! What a program!
I work as a Kindergarten Teacher for the Centralia School District which just adopted Zoo-phonics as an intervention system in order to familiarize myself with the program. I started introducing the letter sound cards to my 18-month-old son. (He started to notice letters when he was 12 months.) I just used the cards with him

It was nothing less than a miracle
I don’t know what magic there is in Zoo-phonics…but the children did everything I had been struggling to get them to do. It was nothing less than a miracle.

We have seen a dramatic improvement in all students who needed help learning the letter sounds, especially our ELL kids!
Since we integrated the Zoo-phonics program in our Kindergarten mid-year, we have seen a dramatic improvement in all students who needed help learning the letter sounds, especially our ELL kids! All of the students began learning the program together and this gave our ELL kids a lot of confidence as they made great progress along
Lana Youngberg Teacher
If I could take back children I had years and years ago, and teach them Zoo-phonics, I know they would have no problem with their reading and that’s how I feel about it.
Pat Hing Teacher
By the end of the first month, we were building words!
Zoo-phonics brought the alphabet alive for my kindergarten students! After only one day, the students all could signal and say the sounds. By the end of the first month, we were building words! Zeke Zebra and all his friends really captivated the students! Great Program!
Diane Kardash Kindergarten Teacher
The enthusiasm of both the parents and the students has caused our students to make great progress.
Zoo-phonics is a great way to introduce children to sounds, letters and beginning reading. Connecting movement and animals to the sounds makes the learning fun and allows children to learn with their whole body. I have found that parents are not threatened by this program and readily join in the fun of moving and connecting

Zoo-phonics is by far the most effective reading program that I have ever encountered in all my teaching years
I am a veteran teacher of 23 years. I have a masters degree in reading and have taught both general and special education. Zoo-phonics is by far the most effective reading program that I have ever encountered in all my teaching years. My special education kindergarten students learned all of their letter sounds in 2

They are confidently sounding out and spelling CVC words as they write simple sentences
I have been teaching kindergarten for 5 years now. This year at the end of the 2nd trimester, all but one of my 20 students have a firm knowledge of letter recognition (upper and lowercase) and letter sounds. They are confidently sounding out and spelling CVC words as they write simple sentences. Their parents are

This is a well-crafted Language Arts program that works for all children
Zoo-phonics, with its cast of child-pleasing Animal Characters, has made a dramatic impact on the beginning reading program at our school. Three, four, and five-year old students are sounding letters, blending letters, building words and reading. It is delightful to see and hear the students as they internalize the sound letter relationship in a natural,

Your use of picture mnemonics to teach letter-sound relations is indeed supported by findings of our 1983 study published in the Journal of Educational Psychology
Your use of picture mnemonics to teach letter-sound relations is indeed supported by findings of our 1983 study published in the Journal of Educational Psychology. In this study we found in two experiments that beginning readers learned letter-sound relations more effectively when they were taught associations between objects having shapes that resembled the shapes of
