I greatly respect the authors approach to teaching phonics in this book.
But I simply can not give this book the best review. Mostly because I could not hold my child's attention using the manner of theatrics suggested. It simply did not resonate with her style of learning.
So my in my review I will tell you how we practice phonics and reading.

Since she was about 18 months old, we have visited Our lessons would usually consist of 3-5 letters a day. Though on rare occasions, she wo
I really liked this books approach. It was very clear, and phonetically based. There were games to play to make learning fun. There were things I didn't like about it, like it's stress on focusing on sounding out the word, such as "c-u-p", then "cup". If the child looks at the word and knows it's cup, then I think sounding it out for the purpose of learning to sound out words is going to discourage the child, and teach that learning isn't fun.

I liked it...this is a very specific program that this woman was successful with at a school she taught at (and lots of years experience). I liked the phonics system and the idea of teaching sounds before names of the letters. She breaks it into sections for teachers, caregivers, parents...there was a bit of extra- a little reader for the child, some simple games to use. While I got some ideas from it, it isn't my main source for teaching a child to read, but it is a good start.
I have difficulty in believing the author's point of view because she resorted to name-calling of anyone who thought differently than her. I believe that if someone has to resort to name-calling, then their method just might not be all that great. Although I did not like the book and would not recommend it to anyone, I gave it a two-star rating because it doesn't contain swearing or pornography. The book is clean, just heavily biased.

I have seen how teaching the phonics first really works. My daughter is reading and advancing better and faster than I was expecting. However, I am not using all of her methods.

It seems like a good mehtod of teaching your child for the most part but it's too much work. I'm sure I can teach my child to read without it.
Interesting- a little heavy handed in some areas and not much new information but a few good tips
Working so far....
