Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOTALLY WORKS - WORTH EVERY PENNY We bought this book on the recommendation of a friend and it has been really really great. My daughter finished SK as a strong reader and hit the ground running in grade 1. My husband and I are not teachers and needed some structure to practice with her and this was exactly what we needed. It's easy to use and provided us both with a framework so that we were consistent no matter who was doing it. It wasn't always loads of fun, but it works and the lessons are short enough to make it easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I am a grade 1 teacher who went to University at a time when phonetics were considered bad. My own daughter entered Grade two struggling with reading. She had been exposed to quality literature her whole life. Then she came home from school early in September and declared she was stupid and would never learn how to read. I knew I had to do something and a friend recommended this book. Within 15 lessons she became a reader and knew it! This book can work- try it. It is easy to use. The first ten lessons are a bit boring, but then the reading starts and your child can be successful. I strongly recommend this book to everyone! My husband does the lessons as well and he is not a teacher. I am very thankful someone recommended this book to me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific! This book is easy to use and the program works. I taught all 3 of my children to read using this book. They are grown now and all continue to enjoy reading. I returned to this book to use with some struggling readers in my classroom!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! No other book is like this. Super easy lessons. My 4-year old son asks to do more. Each lesson only lasts a few minutes. It has really helped him to read and he is proud. We are on lesson 7. So early in the game he has improvement

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic When I first picked up this book I bought it simply based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews. The book initially looked daunting and somewhat boring but I was pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm my daughter had for completing the well organized and smooth flowing lessons. My daughter (age 4) is halfway through the book and can now read road signs when we're driving and spell out words when she's writing/drawing. She enjoys the lessons and every day asks to do her "reading log!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Results! At first look, i didnt know how interested my child would be (4), but once you get into the lessons it is amazing how quick they pick things up..and not just from memory, the focus on comprehension, not just memorization is great. We are only at lesson 40, and i cant believe how well she is reading. Worth every penny. and a lot less expensive than most reading programs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Book I am now halfway through this book with my youngest child, after completing it with my older child a few years ago. This is a simple, fun and amazingly effective way to teach your child to read! This book mixes phonics (which I think is important!), with using logic and picture clues, and gives the child a lifelong ability to sound out words.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best book for teaching your child to read! I would recommend this book over all others in regards to teaching your child how to read. As a homeschooler who is occassionally made to feel that the more you spend the better and more successful the outcome, I find this book to be all you'll ever need to teach them to read. We use this along with the BOB books. Don't think twice, get this book and you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teach Your Child to Read in One Hundred Easy Lesso We love it! I'm so glad we did not end up spending hundreds of dollars like some parents will do, because they think it takes all kinds of bells and whistles to teach your child to read. This is an inexpensive, simple, low stress way to teach your kids how to read. The lessons are short,enjoyable and logical. It truly is a great book. I used this on my son when he had just turned six. He was reading short words by the third lesson, reading Dr. Seuss books within a month and by Christmas he was reading simple children's books like Dr. Seuss, Bob books, Aurthur, etc. Feel confident purchasing this book.
