Based on research done at Yale, this simple yet revolutionary guide merges the three essential elements of reading instruction: auditory training, phonics, and whole language. Inside, teachers and parents will find easy-to-read cartoons, games, and fun phonic sheets that will help almost any child read at or above grade level.

This has become my reading, writing and spelling curriculum for her and my younger two children. It has fun games that utilize all three of the learning types. My middle child loves the games and asks to play them over and over. My youngest writes his own books that he is able to read and is so proud of.
The author does stress the importance of many phonetic rules but doesn't go into the one's that are only used for a handful of words. She says it's easier to have the child memorize the words instead of the difficult rules. I believe this is the part of the book that some parents have problems with. This is the part of the book that I had some issues with. But after seeing the incredible improvement in my oldest daughter in such a short time I am going to try this approach.
The methods are research-based, well explained, easy to use, and effective. My son loves the auditory games and looks forward to our daily reading sessions. Before we started, he had been overheard saying "I hate reading." Within a month he had changed his tune to "Reading is fun! I love reading." I appreciate that the methods are easy for me to use at home and backed by much research. Most of all, I appreciate that they work.
Mrs. Wilber KNOWS children. She knows how their minds work, what they like, how they operate. She also knows parents--what they want, what they dislike, what they are willing to do. Those elements, combined with her vast knowledge of literacy, allow her to create an attractive and effective method for tutoring children and instilling in them a love for reading.
I highly recommend this book. Please read it a few times before implementing it in order to get the big picture and understand the whole process. You won't be disappointed.
