What do you mean I didn't know how to read when I was born?

I love to read and write so much that I just assumed my kids would be born doing both by way of my abundant love for both subjects...or, you know, something like that.

With our oldest at the learn-to-read age, I'm remembering something I must have put out of my head...learning to read and write is a lot of hard work! It's also quite frustrating if you're one of the younger kids in class and everyone else seems to be "getting it." We see definite progress with our sweet girl's reading, but there's still a lot of frustration, too. I honestly just through I'd keep keep reinforcing lessons learned at school, but I've seen quite a few mommies Facebooking it up at about this book, Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons lately. I felt a little peer pressured into seeing what it was about. On Amazon, this book has over 700 reviews and nearly 5 stars. That's always a good sign! I picked up my copy today and the lessons look straight-forward and easy. From what I've seen, also, the book teaches you how to teach the child. I need that! Aside from sounding out letters, which is the only thing I remember about learning how to read, I don't know any other reading tricks. I can't wait to get started on them this weekend. I'll be sure to report back and let you know how it's going - good, bad, or otherwise.

If you've tried this book, let me know! I'd love to hear your feedback. Everything I've seen posted on Facebook looks good. I hope we'll be off green eggs and hamming it it up in no time!
