On the other hand I don't recommend Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons. I know several moms who tried it and it made learning to read a terribly hated chore for their kids and they ended up ditching it. It seems people either love it or hate it. Ani used Calvert School's Come Read With Me and loved it. My sister used a old version of Hooked on Phonics for her son and now they are doing the more advanced phonics using The Reading Lesson and it's been perfect for him. Cameron is using Sonlight's Language Arts K. Anything would probably work for him that is very, very slow (Sonlight does one letter or less a week) with lots of repitition so it's perfect for him. We had The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading and it bored us to death so we got rid of it. I've heard great things about Sing, Spell, Read, and Write.
