Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons
If you can give your child a thirst for reading, the whole world opens to him. We saw it with Joy, who at 6 was reading at a level twice her age. But for Joy, a visual learner, the procedure had been an easy, almost effortless process. When we tried to use the same methods with Hope, we discovered two things: Hope is not a visual learner and we really had no method to teach reading! So with Hope we had to start from scratch. We found ourselves bouncing from one method to another, scatterbrained, but too poor to put out the megabucks needed for any of the flashier programs. And as you might expect, we didn't make a lot of progress. Then we stumbled across this book! What a need it met.
Phonics-based, easy to follow, inexpensive, nonconsumable, and self-contained, it was all that we were looking for. There are no workbooks, no flashcards, nothing fancy—just you, one-on-one with your child for 20 minutes a day.
Based on the nationally successful DISTAR program, this program has been adapted for parent and child use, and seems custom-made for the home school setting. Yes, this method does use visual clues in the first 80 lessons, but then they drop the clues and your child takes off running. We were doubtful at first, but after going through it with four children and hearing hundreds of “success” stories, we're believers! After 100 lessons your child will be reading at a solid 2nd grade level.
My only complaint involves the stories. There is a new story every lesson, starting at lesson 13, and they are too silly for my tastes. But they were the highlights for all our children, so I won't complain too loudly! Hope, after 50 lessons, was reading smoothly, writing short “stories,” and on her own picked up and read other "easy" books. She completed the book before her 5th birthday and effortlessly moved into a 3rd grade reading text. Grace also finished the program while still 4, though there were days that we more than exceeded the 20 minutes prescribed. (Auditory learners must be the most time consuming learners—they seem to need to talk about every step of the process!!).
