"This book is filled with reading pyramids you can use to teach accuracy and fluency. Reading pyramids begin with one word and slowly build into phrases and sentences of increasing complexity. The technique is designed to increase eye span, strengthen eye tracking, and develop fluency." (Learning Magazine, Back-to-School 2007)
Praise for Reading Pathways
"With clarity, interest, humor, and precision, Dolores has offered a way out of the darkness of illiteracy. I am pleased to endorse [her] books as some of the finest instructional materials for teaching children and adults to read that I have reviewed."
—Robert W. Sweet Jr., professional staff member, Committee on Education and the Work Force, U.S. Congress, Washington, D.C.
"Our organization, Kids Read, offers tutoring to struggling or non-reading second graders in the public schools. Dolores Hiskes's materials are our most powerful tools for helping kids achieve confidence and independence in reading . . . The pyramid practice in Reading Pathways strengthens eye tracking and gives learners immediate practice with the concepts they just learned in a bigger setting. Non-readers find initial success in the presentation of short vowel words and stories. The pyramid stories provide an opportunity for multiple readings of the words and phrases, an exercise which is very empowering for emerging readers."
—Becky Faherty, director, Kids Read, Inc., Gaithersburg, Maryland
"Reading Pathways led my children so gently through the pyramids that they were reading big words before they knew it! This is a 'no pain' approach to giving children the extra practice that helps to develop a strong reader."
—Sherrill Fink, homeschooling mother, Virginia
"My students love the multisyllable word pyramids and feel proud they can finally read those mysterious long words. It's so beautiful to see their self-esteem grow. This is what makes teaching rewarding. Thank you!"
—Renee Wesly, special education and regular education teacher, Maunawili Elementary School, Kailua, Hawaii

Of the other popular teaching books such as 100 easy lessons. I will use this for the rest of my children.
On top of being useful, Reading Pathways is fairly fun for young people. It isn't game-filled, but it is laid out in a visually appealing way, and it gives a child a very quick sense of accomplishment that makes him want to continue. If you have a child who knows the rules of reading and phonics but still struggles with fluency, I highly recommend this book. It can also be used while a child is still learning phonics, side by side with a phonics program, because it progresses through phonetic rules in an order typical to most phonics programs.
