At our house we love Starfall.com and Click n Read. My son is 4 and reading on a 1-2 grade level, I think.

I've used Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons for all my kids. They've all been fantastic readers. Some people think it's boring, but I think it's mainly because they are trying to follow the script in the book. I don't follow the script, nor do I do all the activities suggested. Once my kids learn to blend sounds, the lesson involves them reading me the sounds, then the words, then the story. I try to keep it light-hearted and fun. I suggest having a reward to be earned at the end of the book. It's a huge accomplishment and a reward in sight can help keep them going if their interest starts to stall out. I did find that my kids needed more phonics instruction after the 100 lessons book, in order to learn spelling. All About Spelling has been awesome for that, and can itself be used to learn how to read. My kids think it's a lot of fun. There's also an All About Reading program, but I haven't used that.
