Overview

Currently the pendulum of public discussion seems to be swinging in the direction of phonics as the simple answer to illiteracy. Author Vera Goodman clearly demonstrates that this is not so! Goodman asserts that while knowledge of letters and their sounds is important, there are many factors seemingly unrelated to reading that affect the learner's progress.

As a result of Goodman's amazing success with her approach to resolving the complex issues involved in learning to read, she was encouraged by parents and educators alike to write this book.

"I focus my writing on behaviors that affect what happens today as you sit beside your child with a book to share. I do not want to present a yardstick by which to measure your past experiences. In this book I give simple, practical ideas that will help parents to make the best use of time spent practicing," Goodman states.

This Canadian Bestseller has been termed, "The Reading Coach's Handbook". It distills and presents complex ideologies from many different methodologies into language that is concise and easy to read. Parents, educators, reading volunteers and caregivers, who are vested in making a developing readers time more enjoyable and effective, continue to gain new insights from this clear and practical facilitating tool.

Goodman believes that regardless of how reading is being taught, the relationship between an adult and a child as they practice together has a great impact, not only on learning to read, but on whether the child will choose to read for a lifetime.
