Review Quotes




"Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons is incredible. I owe this book, author and method a huge thank you--my daughter can read now, and more importantly, reads for fun. Plus, it's an interesting way to teach phonics I hadn't seen before." --David Weller, The Barefoot TEFL Teacher

"Teach Your Child to Read In 100 Easy Lessons has been endorsed by the National Right to Read Foundation as an exemplary instructional program for teaching children to read...The program is academically sound--the results speak for themselves. The continued problem of illiteracy is an enormous one, but [this book has] made a very significant contribution to solving one of American's greatest needs." --Robert W. Sweet, Co-founder and Former President, National Right to Read Foundation

"I have spent years of my life being passionate about literacy and reading... In college I took a path that led me to keep teaching younger and younger children, trying to figure out why they were not prepared until I began directing childcare centers in 2015. I keep hearing/finding the same things. Children are not being taught to read! And parent/teachers have no idea this is happening until about 2nd or 3rd grade. The main reading curriculum is not scientifically researched or backed! Being an educator in this work, I recognize all the care, thought and research it takes to create a resource like this that is so easy for children and facilitators to understand and teach!" --Brittany Lemons, Family and Community Engagement Specialist-Birth to Five Illinois

"While working within a university-school partnership, I trained, supervised, and guided my teacher candidates as they implemented Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons with the lowest performing first grade readers at a large urban elementary school. Semester after semester, I witnessed children who were considered 'nonreaders' or poor readers advance to reading with joy and confidence and candidates who became skilled and proud of their newfound craft." --Dr. Susan Syverud, Ph.D

"With its short lessons, intuitive alphabet, clear lessons and hands-on learning component, Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons can be an easy, compact and affordable way for parents to get children reading quickly." --Anne Miller, The Smarter Learning Guide

"School boards should be pressured as much as possible to teach reading via the Direct Instruction method of phonics. And if they won't, there's what I call the magical book: Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, by Englemann with Phyllis Haddox and Elaine Bruner. I've seen this method work in my own home, having used it with both of my children and watched that light go on." --John McWhorter, The New York Times

Whether your child is eager or reluctant to read, this is a great book, well suited to the short attention span of early readers. By the end they will be on their way from both a skills and confidence perspective.

My dad taught my sister and I with this book (college math and highschool math proff.) and we were reading above a college level by 7th grade. My dad is your typical boomer, so electronics was never part of our childhood, and they were used as an incentive. He swears by this book and would until the day he died. He taught in an underprivileged school district, and had a 12th grade student who could not read. My dad used this book and at the end of the student's 12th grade year, they could read. We gift this at every baby shower, he recommends this to strangers on the streets, and family.

I started this book with my 4.5 year old in November. Letter names and sounds were mostly recognized. However, with preschool closed since March, he had stalled there. His love of books had not translated to reading skills. This book breaks each lesson into small, repeating tasks. Reading letters, reading sounds, reading words, reading sentences, and eventually, reading stories. No fun games. No color pictures. It could be difficult to get an easily distracted preschooler incentivized to complete these "100 easy lessons" in anything resembling 20 minutes. But slowly, he started to get it. He still complained, but began to take an interest in the stories. He started to recognize sounds in the word readings. Then he began to tear through the word reading, and only struggle through the now progressively longer stories. Then, even the stories became manageable. He would still struggle on certain words, but others he began to memorize. Others he'd learned to sound out. There were patterns in what he struggled with, but he had our individual attention to help him. His writing skills improved so much, even his drawing ability improved. As we reached the end of the book, he was reading multiple paragraphs. The once tedious 'reading class' with a grumpy toddler was now 20 minutes of reading and questions. It requires perseverance, but you *can* teach your child to read. With the book complete, he's now onto reading usborne easy readers. He reads picture books like "bad dog" (by M. Bolt) and 'frog on a log" (by Kes Grey) and laughs. He enthusiastically chooses from library books, just like before, but doesn't scoff when asked to read them, rather than be read to. And he can now, thanks to this book.
