I agree with the others too. I would not spend money on this. I would continue to read to and with your child. There is so much more to reading than just memorizing whole words. There are also all the things Vanna mentions above. I would be afraid there were thing that would need to be retaught. There is no rush to reading. All my kids leaving first grade were above mid 2nd grade level and I had a handful at early kinder level when they came to me. You child has and interest and I am sure is bright. He will get it ... don't rush it.
