Editorial Reviews

Marilyn Jager Adams
"This is a wonderful book. It is not only scientifically responsible, but altogether readable. I hope it will find its way into the hands and minds of every parent, educator, and policymaker in America."

Carl A. Cohn
"Honig’s book takes a fresh, ‘roll up your sleeves, let’s solve this problem’ approach. That’s exactly what we in urban public schools need to realize success with our biggest challenge — teaching kids to become successful and voracious readers early in their school careers."

Robert E. Slavin
"Teaching Our Children to Read is an outstanding contribution to the debate in California and in the nation on optimal teaching strategies for reading."

Staff Avon Maitland District School Board
"This current, practical resource offers a no-nonsense approach to the whole issue of effective reading instruction."
