About the Author
Barbara Simkus, who wrote this set of 10 books known as the Alpha-Phonics and How To Tutor Companion Readers, to accompany either Alpha-Phonics or How To Tutor by Samuel L Blumenfeld, was a very longtime friend and associate of Sam Blumenfeld's. She felt the need to have a set of readers fully coordinated with the phonics reading instruction in the two books by Blumenfeld. She composed this wonderfully well accepted set with the full blessing of Blumenfeld. As opposed to sets of phonics reading practice books like the Bob Books, her set is specifically keyed to accompany the Blumenfeld reading instruction in Alpha-Phonics or How To Tutor. Barbara was a private Tutor in the Detroit, Michigan area for several decades. Tutors only get the diffucult cases so she fully understood the needs of students, especially those youngsters who were not learning reading as well as they should. Mrs. Simkus developed the Readers along with her two homeschooled daughters Valerie and Arianne.
