A well applauded and recommended book ‘Teach your child in 100 easy lessons’ is of great help for children who struggle with the most basic task of reading! Developed exclusively, for a one to one parent and child interaction, it uses the DISTAR method, to formally, improve reading skills. The author, Seigfried Engelmann is a renowned professor of education and claims 20 minutes, is all you need, for consecutive 100 days, to turn your kid into a fluent reader. The book tries to inculcate in the child ‘phonemic awareness’. It has proven beneficial for many, while on the other hand it couldn’t be of any help to a lot of people! Users have reported the methodology to be too formal, repetitive, boring and not engaging. Moreover, its lessons take much more time than what they have been designed for. We recommend you to try an approach that does not merely rely on formal and conventional methods, but stems from practical observation and experimentation, to give your child a well grounded base in reading! We recommend Jim and Elena's Children Learning and Reading Program over this.
