This book is for demoralised parents, whose children just do not ‘get’ reading and who face hostility and resistance, when they try to help. This experience is miserable, and desperate parents frequently blame themselves.
This book also offers something new and exciting, for parents whose young children are just setting out on the road to literacy, who would like to ensure problems with reading do not occur.
Learning to read can be fun. Coloured sticky note-lets and big coloured pens don’t remind children of school. Coloured paper, coloured chalk and white board markers add to the effectiveness of this new way of learning. Colourful practise sheets, reading cards and games enhance recognition and avoid the ‘frightening’ book, while a child comes to realise he can do it!
This is a step-by-step guide to overcoming reading problems. It is also the Handbook, to accompany a set of structured reading books, the ‘Adventures in Bessiebuss’, for when a child is really ready to ‘try’.
