I am writing this review after finding my previously misplaced copy of 'Recipe for Reading'. This book is the missing piece in the phonics instruction puzzle. Although information abounds regarding the sequence of phonics instruction this book is truly complete. It offers a solid multisensory approach and continued reinforcement (both crucial for struggling readers).

I have a deeper knowledge of the book because we went through the entire book for my Orton-Gillingham training but I can say that it, and my training manual, are the backbone of my reading program. The sound instructional methods and clear systematic, sequential approach to phonics instruction are simply excellent. This book is truly a sequential phonics program (some of you may be familiar with the disappointment that the plethora of 'phonics' books elicit from unsuspecting, yet good intentioned, buyers). The sequence chart alone is fantastic. From the basic alphabet to multisyllabic words with blends this book will cover the entire reading sequence in a truly systematic fashion. You do not have to piece it together and it makes complete sense. Having the words for spelling and sentence dictation and reading means that much of the work is done for you. The alliterative sentences are also an excellent addition to this book.

If you want to teach children to read utilizing a systematic, sequential, multisensory approach this book will prove invaluable. I am so happy my copy is no longer misplaced!

As a special education instructor, I have found this book to be a useful tool to form a succinct pattern for teaching reading to the reluctant student. Nina Traub's book starts out with the teaching of consonants and proceeds to short vowel sounds, etc. Each section requires the student to recall prior learning, therefore ensuring mastery of material. This is a great tool for not only the reluctant reader but also children with learning disabilities.

I learned about this book through a special education teacher. I have used it for the last five years, and the truth is, it's a great way to get to those kids who just can't '"get it". It is very flexible and adaptable to each student's needs.

Please read the reviews before mine and just remember that good spelling is phonics based in the begining until all sound spellings are mastered. This book gives you an order in which to teach spelling rules, and many words to use and activities to back it up. Just buy it! You will be so glad you did.

I find it laughable that people are charging over $30 for a used, older version of the book, when it is available new from the publisher (SRI) for $20.00. Smells like profiteering to me.

My understanding was the book was based on the Orton- Gillingham program. I did not find it to coincide with the program I am being trained in presently. It does give a list of words and some sentences for most letters and sounds that are helpful to me in planning my lessons.

Excellent input on sequential detailed information to teach literacy to struggling readers. This book helped me a great deal on organizing the materials taught alongside with Orton Gillingham instruction. I am very glad I bought this book!

Recipe for Reading has many strengths. The consonants and letter sounds are taught within the context of alliterative sentences. This is one of the best ways to teach letter sounds because it builds phonemic awareness. This book provides many ideas for students who have trouble blending letter sounds. Recipe for Reading is excellent for beginning readers.

The book then gets into consonant blends, syllabication of two-syllable, closed syllable words, and digraphs ph and ck. It seems a bit early to introduce the ph digraph as many ph words are difficult to read.

The biggest problem I find is in the last two sections where vowel digraphs, vowel dipthongs and r-controlled vowels are introduced. The problem is that there is no comparative spelling. Students do not learn to compare spellings such as words with "ea" and "ee." I suppose that for strictly a reading program that would be okay. However, it is clear to me that Recipe for Reading is both a spelling and reading program.
