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!
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.
