I used this book with my daughter when she was 4. She was reading completely by the age of 5.
It is easy, practical, and guides you each step of the way.
I highly recommend to anyone with a struggling reader, homeschooler, or wanting to teach kids how to read!
Due to a serious illness, she could not speak that year but still taught us with Corrine Stickland as her "voice".
It was a remarkable year! The local Houston newspaper came to do a story and photograph us that year because when the rest of America was teaching kids to read by the new rout method, she was giving us the rules and the means of figuring out words for ourselves...teaching us with the old-fashioned, tried and true method...PHONICS. Other kids were reading, "Dick and Jane run" and we were reading chapter books; they were spelling "goat" and "cat", we were spelling "hippopotamus". [This is absolutely true and was a word on a spelling list in that first grade class...I have never forgotten it.]
If America had not become a nation of "educated fools", our children could ALL read and be CONFIDENT in their ability to do so.
My lifelong love of reading began with the methods taught in this humble little book. I am 58 this year and I wouldn't trade what she taught me about reading and about life for a winning lottery ticket. Mrs. Bouldin gave us the gift of understanding how to read and the beginnings of how to think for ourselves. For this I will always call her blessed.
Yes, I recommend this book to all mothers and educators who truly want to provide children with workable tools to succeed in life.

I taught my 8 children how to read from this book...and wrote a curriculum (& need to get it published!) that I used alongside it. I would have loved to have met Ms. Ethel Bouldin. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Paula B Carlson
