I recommend this book for beginner readers. My 5 year old is quickly learning to sound out words after starting this program. My older child, age 7 and just removed from school, was learning to "sight read" and couldn't use phonics to read until we started this program.

We own two copies to keep the kids from fighting over whose turn it is to hold the book. It is simple to use and well written. The instructions are in the back of the book for the teacher/parent and the rest of the book is for the child to use and review. You can buy this new on his website ( or used from Amazon for a lot less.

My comments: Thanks so much for sharing this review. We used this book some when my daughters were younger too.

Alpha Phonics
by: Anonymous

I love using the Alpha-Phonics Reading program for my three children. My eleven year old twins are now both avid readers, even though they each learned to read at different ages. My five year old son is now learning to read through Alpha -Phonics and is doing well.

Along with the Alpha-Phonics, we incorporated the
McGuffey Readers
and the Classical Curriculum Reading and Writing workbooks.

This has been especially nice since it has simplified my teaching and because it also allows my children to work independently for most of their study time.

My Comments:: Thanks so much for adding your comment here. It's always great to hear how a curriculum works well for a family. Alphaphonics contacted me and gave me a link to their videos that explain the program even better. You can access it at

I love the self-teaching model too and it all starts with being strong readers.

May God continue to bless you this year!
