Just read books to your child. It's just as effective, and probably better for them, because it is one on one time with you. Visit your local library if you don't have a lot of them. Reading well and loving to read comes from learning to love books.
My babies can read, and I never had a program. Amazingly, they are both school age and read just the same as anyone else in their class without any expensive program. Babies and young children learn through play. They don't need a curriculum at that age.

It is highly discouraged as children that have learned this way have to be retaught how to read correctly once they get into school as it does not teach phonics and how to actually use phonics.
It is very detrimental to your child.

Baby can read is a teachers worse nightmare. These programs do not teach children how to read, it teachs them how to memorize things to make mommy happy.
Real reading uses phonics none of which Baby can read teachs. Which means a teacher has to reteach a child how to read, which is much harder for a teacher to do.
They have also found that children who learn with this program may be more advanced then their peers in kindergarten, by the time they hit grade 2-3 they are behide their peers (who didnt use baby can read) in the reading department
Leave the teaching to professionsals and just read books to your child. Your childs future teachers will be grateful.
