What People Are Saying

Billy Mitchell
We were blessed to have Mrs. Goldhagen in our district. Her presentation of Play & Read was well received by the staff. Teachers raved about the responses that they received from their students. Children were taking an active part in this highly motivating program. Mrs. Goldhagen has enthusiasm that carries over to others. She is extremely knowledgeable and full of energy. We will need to solicit her help again in the future. (Dr. Billy J. Mitchell, Superintendent - Pembroke Community Consolidated Schools)
Cimaglia
When our son Stephen was four, we were both concerned with his academic abilities. We were contemplating holding him back a year. We then met Mrs. Goldhagen and her unique system of teaching reading. After only six months working with the Play & Read kit our son mastered all his phonics sounds (320 words) and 100 sight words. All this was accomplished with only 15 minutes a day. Stephen can now spell all (320) phonics words. He can read on the second grade level and his comprehension is excellent. This fall Stephen will be entering first grade. We are grateful to Mrs. Goldhagen for introducing us to the Play & Read program. (Tony and Phyllis Cimaglia)
Helene Bartz
Nancy Goldhagen’s many years of teaching reading to young children have been highly successful. She has incorporated her techniques in the Play & Read kit. Teachers at the Science and Arts Academy highly endorse this excellent approach. It makes a child’s first experience with reading one of enthusiasm and joy. I strongly endorse this reading program. (Dr. Helene Bartz, Founder, Science and Arts Academy, Des Plaines, Il)
Joan Wardzala
Great book for teaching reading to young children. I own a daycare and Nancy’s book of strategies has been invaluable!

My youngest child at the daycare, who is learning to read, is 16 months old. Playing the game “see Four-Give Me One”, she can pick out words and never make a mistake. She can’t even talk yet.

My oldest child is five years old and has difficulty learning. Nancy’s strategies are very important in helping me to teach him how to read.

My four year old has learned to read 104 words in five weeks! He is reading small books already!

Following the strategies in this book make reading fun for the children. I have seen amazing results. I highly recommend the book.
