Excerpt from the Book

Introduction

The purpose of this book is to show you how to teach someone to read. Teaching someone to read is really quite simple, when you have a plan. I have made that plan for you (see Here’s the Plan: As Easy as 1, 2, 3). Anyone can do it, and that means you. Every thing you need is right here. I have been an educator for over thirty years, teaching in private schools, public schools and have homeschooled my own children. I have taught special education, regular education, English language learners, students who are educationally challenged, as well as students who are gifted.

Many parents have told me, “I would love to teach my child to read but I don’t know what to do.” There are many different reading programs out there, but the problem is, many are too complicated, too expensive, not thorough, or take too much time. Parents need an easy way to teach their children to read. This pro gram is simple, inexpensive, thorough, easy-to-use, and has proven results.  You are the parent, so you decide when to start teaching your child to read. If you are homeschooling, you have flexibility and some decide to wait until the children are older. If your children are in a regular school system, reading begins at approximately 5 years of age. Generally from kindergarten through third grade students are learning to read. From fourth grade on, students are reading to learn. Therefore, if a child does not learn to read well by fourth grade, they will fall farther behind with each passing grade, not learning as much in all areas. On the other hand, if your child is reading well before fourth grade, he will have an advantage and learning will be easier.

So whether you are wanting to give your child an early jump-start to ensure his success, or wanting to give more help at home, or if you are playing catch-up to help your child get up to grade level, this program will be just right for you. Ready, Set Read works for all age levels.

I have four children, three daughters and one son. Before each child was one year old, I started teaching them the ABC’s, using flash cards. By the time they were 3 years old, they were reading at an early level. This ability to read at a young age gave the children an advantage in all subject areas. School work was easy and fun. They were self-confident and had high self-esteem. These children loved reading and learning; therefore they continually wanted to learn more.

A few years ago my older daughters asked me to write this reading program. They told me that when they have children, they want to teach them how to read just as I taught them. They wanted a step-by-step program to follow. My daughter is now using it to teach my grandchildren.

I wrote this book for them and we are now offering it to you. Bless your child and teach him or her to read. Teach a friend to read.  Teach a home less person to read. It is very rewarding to make a major difference in some one’s life. The ripple effect of blessings continues forever and will bless you too. I will show you how to teach someone to read, and I will make it simple.

Enjoy the adventure!
God Bless You,
