Editorial Reviews

Review

"An excellent, important book." (Robert Sylwester)

Although there is an enormous amount of information, the simplicity of the language, the chronology of reading development, and the suggested practices or strategies at various stages create a comprehensive, meaningful, and relevant text. (Yvette Jackson, Executive Director)

"Provides a solid analysis, based on brain research, of how the brain functions as children learn new reading skills. The authors then take it a step further by illustrating concrete instructional practices that provide learning opportunities for all students." (News Briefs, Fall 2006)

Format: Paperback
This book was a good find! It was a quick read but had a lot of great information. It was nice to find a book about Literacy that started from square one with infancy and went through third grade. It's a true Early Childhood book on Literacy.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Ruth Hawkins on September 6, 2009
Format: Paperback
I have been a reading specialist in Connecticut for eleven years. Having read many books pertaining to the subject matter, I recommend this book to new teachers and veterans who need to update their knowledge about reading. This book is outlined well, defines the different components of reading well, and provides explicit examples to help all educators. I plan on purchasing this book for a school wide book talk. It is that good! University teachers should recommend this book to all teachers.
