Summary "Why are so many parents afraid to teach their children how to read at home? Phonics programs are too often complicated, overpriced, gimmicky, and filled with obscure 'educationalese.' Take charge of your child's literacy with this jargon-free phonics primer! The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading utilizes a simple, scripted format that guides parents and children through each lesson, from beginning vowel sounds through words on a fourth-grade level"--Cover, p. 4.
