If you are interested in teaching your child to read, I'm pleased to announce a new resource for you: Can I Teach My Child to Read? A Parent's Guide. This free guide discusses the joys of working with your child at home, why phonics matters and tips on how to make it easy for you to teach your child to read.

You are exactly the right person to teach your child to read, and this guide will tell you why.
Have You Ever Wondered: "Can I Teach My Child to Read?"
The first step in teaching your child to read is believing that you can. Many parents leave this job to the schools, which is certainly a fine option for some families. But teaching your child to read at home has three distinct advantages:
1) The time you spend with your child is something you will always remember as special. Most likely your child will, too.
2) Your child gets a head start. Early readers tend to excel in school.
3) If your child has a learning style that is incompatible with how the school is teaching reading, he or she will have the one-on-one coaching (and phonics-based instruction) that you are providing at home.
If you have doubts about your ability to teach your child to read, join the club! Many parents aren’t quite sure they’re equipped for the task.
But you are. And if you don’t believe it, challenge that by surrounding yourself with people and resources that assure you that you can teach your child to read. Can I Teach My Child to Read? A Parent's Guide was designed with you in mind.
