"Sadie and Isaac really enjoyed playing Ooka Island! I know Isaac felt a sense of pride that he could help "teach" Sadie her letters and sounds building his confidence. In the 7 hours Sadie was logged in to play, I have seen improvement in her ability to recognize and correctly name the alphabet and a few sounds that she didn't already know." -- A review by always come home @Kiley Ferguson Farwell
"We absolutely LOVE Ooka Island around here. Princess asks to play everyday, and I truly don’t mind letting her. I can see such an improvement in her skills in the short amount of time we have had the game." -- A review by Sunflowers On The Hill.
"When the 3yo sat down to play Ooka Island she wasn't sure what to do and the interactive game helped guide her and help her figure it out. It is intuitive and keeps them moving at their pace. If you want to check their progress you can head over to Ooka Lighthouse and find out. " -- A review by HOMEDAZE. @Renita Terrell
"We really enjoyed Ooka Island. It was fun and really interactive. It is the the only computer game I have seen where it involves sound recognition in addition to other basic phonics skills. The independent log-in for prereaders is really helpful. Using this type of log in allows Maggie to click on the icon in my toolbar and log in completely independently. The graphics were great and the program, while big, didn't slow down my computer. " -- A review by Swinging on Small Hinges
"The company does well in introducing letter and word sounds while encouraging the child to interact with the program. I really liked that about every 20 minutes of game play, children visit the Popcorn Library where the e-books are kept. " -- A review by Homeschool Circus
"Today I get to review Ladybug and Monkey's FAVORITE learning game! They absolutely LOVE Ooka Island. We had the chance to review it a couple years ago and they were so upset when it ended. " -- A review by Adventure in Home Education.
"To Moose, it was all just a fun game that he could call part of his school day. He didn’t realize he was learning or putting to use things I had been trying to teach him this past year. He just played. His brothers actually were jealous, even though the game is well below their learning level." -- A review by MedinaMom
