Reviews - What do customers think about Mommy, Teach Me to Read: A Complete and Easy-to-Use Home Reading Program?
Got to be something better out there. Nov 29, 2009
I bought this book based on a Internet reviews and I've got to say it was not very good. Like a previous poster said, there are several comments in the book which amount to "kids are God's gift and aren't they precious miracles" and so on.... I expected to the book to be about an academic approach to teaching reading and more scholarly methods to achieve this and it just wasn't there. I don't understand the glowing reviews unless they wanted to teach religion.
For our children today! Aug 26, 2009
This book is just what I was looking for! Highly recommended for parents who care!
Ok May 27, 2009
Some helpful tips, but you have to search for them - most of the book consists of the author bragging about her children and her parenting skills. A better book is "Teach Your Child to Read in 10 Minutes a Day"
Very Disappointing Apr 20, 2009
This was a BIG disappointment. First, most of the content turned out not to be new information with respect to actually teaching my child to read. Second, I wish they had indicated on the cover or somewhere viewable BEFORE purchasing the book that she has very specific religious beliefs that she natters about. This is a HUGE turn-off, especially since it has no direct connection with teaching a child to read. I won't buy anything from this author again.
Really works for children under 6! Apr 6, 2009
I originally bought this book to teach my Kindergartner to read. As a homeschooling mother of six, I'd already taught my three oldest children to read, but thought there must be some tricks to help my new reluctant reader.
I did find some good reading activities, which I tried and my Kindergartner's reading skills improved immediately. But what caught my attention was Barbara Curtis' recommendation that you teach your child during a window of learning before they reached Kindergarten age.
I thought it was worth a try. I have a 4 year old, and when I started working with him, he didn't know his letter sounds or alphabet. I took the book's suggestions, and tried teaching him his letter sounds before teaching him the alphabet.
I read him the same story daily for months at a time, and taught him little rhymes to help him remember his letter sounds. I tried the reading box, which Barbara Curtis recommends to help children make the leap from concrete to abstract when learning to read. He is now able to read beginning books with help. The best part is that he is able to sound out the words much easier than his 6 year old sister can, because we took advantage of the development window!
I cannot praise this book highly enough. I also bought Mommy Teach Me at the same time, and the two work very nicely together. If you have preschool aged children, buy this book today!
