Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons by Siegfried Engelmann

This product was recommended by Candice Criscione from Mom In Italy

If you do the lessons each day for 100 days, your child will learn how to read! As a busy mom, I appreciated that the lessons were scripted so I didn’t have to do any planning. Each lesson takes 15-20 minutes and requires a parent or caretaker’s presence. My son enjoyed seeing his progress and he looked forward to reading the short stories. He loves reading now and I attribute part of that to the stress-free, systematic approach of Engelmann’s book. I’ve recommended it to many other moms and I’ll use it for my other two children as well!

BO, GO UP! by Larry Baum

This product was recommended by Larry Baum from the Bo Books

When I was teaching my children to read, I thought it would be easier for them to learn short words than long words, so I looked for books with only short words. But I had trouble finding them (I mean the books, not the words!). So I wrote a story with words no longer than two letters, hoping that it can help other children learn reading more easily. I tried to include characters, action, and humor, which was challenging with a vocabulary limited to 2-letter words! I wanted kids around the world to have it, so I hired an illustrator and self-published the paperback book. The goal is to make it easier for children to read their very first book on their own, and gain confidence so that they can read more at a younger age.
