I cannot say enough about this book, it is amazing!!! I was really struggling with helping my daughter learn how to read, I had no clue how to actually go about it. This book has helped a ton! I would recommend this book to anyone who is trying to help a child learn to read. I wish I had discovered it when she was in Kindergarten(or earlier), but it has still helped a ton for first grade reading, and it has helped her catch up to her grade level (she fell behind last year because I was sick, and ...more

I love this book. It is fun and easy to use. My daughter started when she turned four and is now reading chapter books easily at six and we have started our son on them too. The lessons are simple and you can do as much or as little as you want at a time. The kids love that they can learn to read stories so quickly, because the layout of the book means they are reading stories by the end of the first chapter.

I also bought the CD so I could print multiple pages, along with their other CD's and D
Out of all the books on teaching your kids to read, I like this one the most. I'm not a fan of using pictures to help learn the letter sounds (adding more steps to readily recognizing the sounds) or using worksheets (only because it becomes expensive as you progress through 5 kids). I think I will give this method a try, adapting to my preferences as I go along.
Slowly working through this book with my 5 year old . . . really good book!

Probably won't finish this before she starts kindergarten . . . a really good book to introduce letter sounds and beginning phonics skills!
Totally love this book. Perfect for my 5 year old. Goes well with Explode the Code stuff, too, if you want more writing, or use it with a younger child who is ready to read but struggles with writing.
Great combination of phonics and whole language. Hunter actually asks for this book. I think it is a simple and fun way to teach reading.
Great simple teaching tool. Caden is always proud of his reading accomplishments. Easy to stop whenever he has had enough. Love the book!
good teaching children to read book. I haven't finished it yet.
Matthew says he likes reading the letters and making the sounds.
