Reading Level: Parents & Teachers
"I'm so impressed with how this book was put together. The lessons are fool proof for the parent, as they are written with detailed directions. New sounds are gradually worked into previously mastered tasks so that the child is never given more than he/she can handle (this does wonders for my daughter's reading confidence). Before you know it, your child is reading three and four paragraphs, and the process of getting there wasn't painful at all!
One note: I have read other reviews from parents using this book with 3 and 4 year olds. Certainly, if your preschooler shows an interest in reading, this book is an excellent choice. But NOTHING will work unless your child is READY to learn, not even "100 Lessons." Reading readiness happens at different ages (like every other milestone in childhood), and we as parents must respect our children's personal timetables (difficult to do sometimes, I know). Hey, remember when WE were in kindergarten? We spent our days playing, painting, napping (do they even nap anymore these days). Reading came along in first grade, and many of us may not have been ready to learn until then.
That said, buy the book and use it when your particular family is ready ~ ENJOY! :o)"
"I bought this for my 5yr old and it really does help him to learn to read. I customize the lessons for our use and do it at our own pace.I love seeing the joy in his face when he finally realized he could read some words and sentences. He's also more attentive to words he sees in everyday life and tries to read them too!"
