    Great program for early reading program

    I initally borrowed this book from my local library, thinking it would be interested to see what it takes to teach a baby to read, even though my toddler had just turned 2 years old. I tried out the method with a few flashcards and was amazed at how quickly my son picked it up. I immediately ordered this book, along with "How to Teach Your Baby Math" and "How to Teach Your Baby to be Physically Superb."

    The first half of the book is devoted to the history of the Institutes of Human Potential and what they do for both brain-injured and "normal" children. It discusses in some detail the science behind how the program works and the ability for young children to learn.

    The how-to's of the program are covered in the back half of the book. They detail how to start with any child up to age 6, which is helpful if you are starting past the newborn stage (like we did).

    Some people disagree with the idea of using flashcards with young children, claiming you are taking the joy out of learning. But the key to a successful program is keeping it quick and fun. My son asks for his "words" everyday, several times a day and I enjoy watching him get excited about learning at such a young age.

    If you are looking at this book for your infant or toddler, chances are, you are looking for ways to entertain your child beyond singing or reading books. And what better way to get them started on a path of lifelong learning than to get them hooked while they are young!
