From the Publisher
"Coquito" es un texto didáctico y científico que, en sólo 53 lecciones, rigurosamente graduadas logra los objetivos de la lecto-escritura, donde sus niños desarrollarán el pensamiento lógico leyendo y escribiendo en corto tiempo.
"Coquito" se ha estructura y elaborado con sólidas bases lingüísticas. No debemos olvidar que el castellano, por su singular característica fonológica, es el único idioma en que se lee como se escribe, a diferencia de las demás lenguas, cuya complejidad fonética es notable.
"Coquito" trae en su contenido una temática graficada a todo color e ilustrada con estímulos visuales para desarrollar el pensamiento del niño que se inicia en el proceso de la expresión oral y la lectura, así como la escritura y la matemática. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
Elementary School teacher Everardo Zapata-Santillana, author of the learning how-to-read in Spanish book named ''Coquito'', was born in the beautiful Tambo Valley in the city of Arequipa, Peru in 1926. At a very early age, he felt the need to study and research a career in teaching, later immersing himself entirely as a teacher and putting to good practice his wide knowledge. He studied in La Escuela Normal de Varones ''San Juan Bautista de La Salle'', Arequipa, where he graduated as an Elementary School Teacher.
He was sent to Punta de Bombóm, Arequipa, a small town where he founded a First Grade School in 1952, which now bears his name and in which he researched and found, during a 7 year period, an appropriate and effective method to teach children to read, write and think. ''Coquito'' was first published and sold in the city of Arequipa in 1955.
Today there are 12 countries among South America, Central America, Mexico and The United States in which this book is sold and love, counting more than 38 million of children that learned how to read using the ''Coquito'' method. Everardo Zapata-Santillana is also the author of more than 60 published teaching materials, for children in preschool and first grade years, all of which are distributed under the corporate brand name ''Ediciones Coquito''.
All of his hard work and dedication have been recognized by the Bureau of Education in Peru where Everardo Zapata-Santillana has been honored with the highest level of recognition given to a teacher known as Las Palmas Magisteriales en su máximo grado de ''Amauta''. Also the Peruvian Congress awarded him in 2011 with the Official Medal of Honor. The Mayor of the city Arequipa awarded him with the City's Cultural Gold Medal. He has been named Honorary Professor by ''La Universidad de Santa Maria'', a Catholic University in Arequipa. He has also received a Gold Medal by the Arequipa Regional Government, among many other recoginitions.
Everardo Zapata at his 88 years of age lives in Arequipa, Peru, and while his method is well proven, he is still seeking improved ways to help children and teachers ease the learning process.
