How to Read is an excellent kick-start for beginning readers. With beautiful color illustrations and lauded for its simplicity, the book nicely pairs phonics and whole language into an old-made-new method of reading instruction for beginners of any age. In 56 short daily lessons, the student will have learned and thoroughly practiced (in sentence context) 125 new words, 50 of which are common core required sight words for public school students by first grade. Teachers of the language arts, whether homeschooling or public school/private school who are looking for great curriculum will find this an invaluable aid for teaching. The book is fit for any age student, from early childhood Pre-K and Kindergarten, to adult literacy.
