This early reading primer, targeted for children ages 1-6, will give any young reader a head start. The book is designed ideally to cover one chapter per day such that the student will have acquired basic reading skills within about one month. Covering a total of 64 phonetic sounds, when gradually introduced in a specific order, they help the reader to grasp the concepts quickly. Although the book is crafted for children, the approach may appeal equally to older students, including those who are learning English as a second language. In addition to introducing reading basics, this primer emphasizes the importance of teacher involvement as a crucial step in the path to literacy.
