TEACH YOUR CHILD TO READ
and Enable Your Child to Become a
Fast and Fluent Reader!
If you believe that teaching your child to read and helping your child develop proficient reading skills is the key to future success, and if you wish to help your children develop to their fullest potential... then you must read this message carefully.
Here's why: I'm Jim, a reading teacher and father of 4 amazing kids. Forget about everything you've read and heard about how and when your child should learn to read - most of the information out there is irrelevant, some are downright detrimental, and you may even be shocked to hear that starting off by learning sight words could actually lead to reading problems and difficulties! So before you run off and decide to teach your child using sight words or any other approach, PLEASE watch our video above in full where I explain why you should NOT start teaching with sight words, and show you the combination of two simple, scientifically proven methods, that will enable you to teach your child to read, and help your child become a fast and fluent reader.
Here, let me show you what sort of incredible accomplishments can be made possible using our teaching methods.
Watch the Amazing Reading Progress of These Children
The little girl you saw in the first video above is our daughter, Raine. We began teaching her how to read when she was 2 years and 8 months old. The second video shows the reading progress of our second child, Ethan. We began teaching him to read at 2 years and 6 months old. The third videos shows the reading progress of Joy, our third child. You can see the fantastic reading skills development after just 12 weeks of lessons, but even more remarkable, is the incredible reading level achieved long after completing the Children Learning Reading program.
I can tell you right now, that I've taught children of ALL AGES to read, many as young as 2 and 3 years old, others are older elementary school students, and they've all progressed on to achieve similarly incredible results! Not only that, countless parents JUST LIKE YOU have used my teaching methods to teach their children to read, and they've sent me videos to show the amazing results! Just take a look at the countless success stories sent to us by ecstatic parents:
Now at 2 years and 4 months, he can read an entire book by himself! He is reading at a 2nd grade level! At our church school, his teacher was amazed.
- Diane C., Irvine, CA.
My son was picked up for reading support services in first grade. We completed your program and his reading teacher said that his reading abilities exploded and he is on grade level!
- Christine M.
Jim's program takes the mystery out of teaching children how to read. My older child is in grade 1. The teacher said her reading and writing is beyond grade level. My 4 year old in preschool reads several books a day on her own.
- Parminder S., Surrey, BC.
I couldn't stop her! It's amazing to see her read and be so confident about it too! I was completely blown away. After a week from starting your program, she can actually spell 3-letter words on her own and not from memory!
- Farah Lyn G., Dallas, TX.
He brought home his report card this Friday and we were so excited that he went from an 81 to an 87 in Language Arts.
- Shari H.
I have taught in Catholic schools for over 20 years in grades Pre-K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades and used various Reading programs/series. My own child is 22. I wish I had known about your program 20 years ago! I am excited to see my little 3 year olds at school learning phonemic awareness so easily and in only a few minutes each day!
- Paige S.
My daughter is in grade 2, and it was brought to my attention by her teacher that her reading level was below grade level. After 2 months, my child is now reading at grade level, and she has started beginner novels and reads on her own!
- M. G., Surrey, BC.
We are so grateful and thankful that you came up with this kind of reading program. I avoided having my daughter being taught using sight words and whole language approach.
- Lorelie F.
Thanks to the program she is able to read out most of the books her level with minor guidance on some words that can't be sounded out.
- Dwight K.
Wow, She is Reading!!! Nowadays, she is so competent that she corrects me while I read to her.
- Noriko I.
After Kindergarten my son could not read at all! His teacher said he would never be able to keep up or catch up in 1st grade & wanted to hold him back... then we found your program... When he started 1st grade, he is reading and the teacher is ABSOLUTELY AMAZED and RAVES about his progress. You are a lifesaver!

What Makes This Breakthrough Learn to Read System So Powerful is That it Allows You To...
Teach Your Child to Read Through a Unique Combination of Synthetic Phonics and Phonemic Awareness Skills Development. It is a fact - helping children develop phonemic awareness skills is the most essential step in acquiring reading skills. The spoken English language is made up of words and sentences, and these words are made up of individual sounds or phonemes. Children learn to say and recognize these individual sounds through a process called developing phonemic awareness. According to the National Reading Panel, phonemic awareness improves children's word reading and reading comprehension, and it also helps children learn to spell. Research has indicated that phonemic awareness has a direct correlation with students' ability to read as they get older, and it helps to build a foundation for children to understand the rules of the English language.
Teach Your Child to Read Through Short, Engaging, and Ultra Effective Lessons. We all know it - children have a short attention span, and get distracted easily. Our program is so effective because it takes advantage of a young child's curiosity and desire to learn new things. To accomplish this, the lessons taught in our program are short, but super effective. Many lessons take just 3 to 5 minutes to complete! You will NOT be putting your child in front of the television for hours on end with our system. No way! In fact, we do not recommend small children watch television to learn how to read - our children and YOUR children deserve better.
Teach Your Child to Read Without Television and Without Computer Programs. Can you really expect your child learn to read by watching some random words flash on a TV screen? Sure, they might learn to memorize some word shapes, but does the child really acquire the ability to decode and read effectively? Of course not...
Do not think for one minute, that spending hundreds of dollars on ineffective DVD, TV, and Computer programs will teach your child to read or replace the loving care and attention of an attentive parent. You are the parent and teacher during the most important developmental years of your child's life. For that, you will be rewarded with the greatest experience, and your child will be rewarded with developing the most important skills in life - reading and literacy skills.
Reading Makes Your Child Smarter,
and Your Child Misses a GOLDEN Opportunity, If You Do Not Teach Your Child to Read Now
The first several years of your child's life are the most important for healthy brain development and growth. Critical aspects of a child's brain are established well before they enter school, and it is the experiences during these sensitive periods of development that play a critical role in shaping the capacities of the brain. [i] Please see the graph below, which charts the synapse formation in a child's brain at different ages.
As you can see, synapse formation for higher cognitive function peaks around 2 to 3 years of age. There is a direct link between a child's academic performance and future success with positive early experiences and developing early reading skills.
Reading makes your child SMARTER, and the very act of reading can help children compensate for modest levels of cognitive ability! [v - Cunningham, Stanovich]
Your child's vocabulary at age 3 predicts his or her first grade reading success [ii], and...
Vocabulary and reading ability in first grade strongly predicts grade 11 outcomes [iii], and...
Third grade reading skills directly influences high school graduation. Children who cannot read proficiently by grade 3 are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma than proficient readers! [iv]
And if you think... "why do I need to teach my child to read when they'll learn to read at school, and what are the chances that my child will be a poor reader?" Then you need to THINK AGAIN! Because...
67% of all Grade 4 students cannot read at a proficient level! According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, of those 67%, 33% read at just the BASIC level, and 34% CANNOT even achieve reading abilities of the lowest basic level! The NAEP is the only ongoing survey of what students know and tracks their performance in various academic subjects for the United States. 
The U.K. government's Department of Education reported that 42% of children left school without achieving a basic level of functional English - Over 100,000 students leave schools functionally illiterate in the UK each year! 
The Australian Government Department of Education reported that 33% of all year 5 students CANNOT meet the benchmark literacy skills, and in Canada, 42% of Canadians are considered semi-illiterate! [6 ,7] Unfortunately, non of these above shocking literacy statistics should be surprising because...
"Many in-service teachers are not knowledgeable in the basic concepts of the English language. They do not know how to address the basic building blocks of language and reading." - This is NOT a statement that we are making, rather, this is a finding from a study done at the Texas A&M University. Their study was aptly titled "Why elementary teachers might be inadequately prepared to teach reading." 
The above statistics and findings are not something we pulled out of thin air. They are reported by government agencies on the current state of the literacy levels of school children.
Poor reading ability and literacy skills lead to reduced opportunities in life, and worse yet, "being illiterate is a guaranteed ticket to a dead end life with no skills and no future." 
Makaela is in grade two. She was reading below grade level expectations. That disheartening report told me Makaela needed reading help - now! That's when I found your program. We have recently completed Lesson 18 in Stage Two. She just got her March Progress Report and it states: "Makaela is reading at a beginning grade 2 level. Last week, we were told she would no longer be receiving reading intervention.
- Walter R. Edmonton, AB. Canada
I first started her learning through the Hooked on Phonics program,but I slowly noticed that she could not decode new words. I had to find another way to help her. Using your method, she can now sound out a lot of new words that she has never seen before. She has become more and more confident in reading.
- Desiree P.
Before we started she only knew the letter alphabet not the sounds. After 3 weeks she started reading already and we're very happy about it. She always loves books and now she loves it more.
- Vanie. N
I am an Early Childhood Special Needs Teacher and I have to say I have never seen anything like this. It's amazing! My daughter bought it and taught my granddaughter, M'kaela, to read at 3 years, she is now in kindergarten and will be 6 in January and she is at a 3rd grade reading level.
- Tammy J.
We started your program about a month before he started kindergarten, and I'm just amazed how fast he's learned to read in a short period of time. I wish I would have discovered your program a long time ago.
- Martha B.
My 6 year old's reading was not improving and he was trying every trick in the book to get out of doing his reading homework. Your program has turned things around. He has gone from a level 6 or 7 to a level 14 in his school reader homework. He is also reading junior chapter books by choice! I love it.
- Leanne B., Australia
My son who will be six in July is responding to the lessons with amazing results. Seeing him struggle with his homework is the reason why I chose to buy the full kit, and oh boy, money well spent.
- Casta M.
I teach 15 Native American children. The results have been amazing! According to the 1st grade teacher here, my students are much further along with their reading ability than any other class has been so far since she has been here.
- Janeil S., Wind River Reservation, Wyoming
My son could barely blend words and was reading below expectation before I came in contact with your program. I am most grateful for this destiny changing experience with this program with my 5 year old son.
I have a 6 year old son who had some pretty significant delays due to liver disease. I never thought he would take off reading the way he has! He's doing so well with your program he will not have to repeat kindergarten. We are so pleased with your reading program! And super excited our son gets to go into first grade all because his reading skills are so good! He's a better reader than most of his friends his age who have never had delays or medical issues.
- Stephanie P.
Zavier loved doing your program and I found it very easy to teach. His reading has improved so so much! After just 2 weeks his teacher noticed a difference and was asking me what we were doing at home! Before he started your program he was on a level 10 and has now progressed to level 17!!!!
- Amber & Marco, Australia
Using Whole Language Learning Methods May Cause Your Child to Struggle With Reading!
The "whole language" method of learning to read is a controversial approach to teaching reading. With the whole language method, students are expected to simply look at a word and say it out. This approach to learning reading is very much a "word shape memorization" plan. In fact, one very popular (and expensive) program that claims to teach even babies to read is a whole language learning method.
With the whole language learning to read method, the child is expected to "learn to read" words by their total configuration. In this "look and say" approach, a young child memorizes the shape of the word, and recognizes the word by its configuration without developing any real understanding of the relationship between the individual components of a word as related to its whole.
The disadvantages of learning to read by the whole language method has been widely proven in scientific research. Large amounts of research in the past few decades have shown that teaching phonemic awareness produces the best reading results in Children. In fact, after an extensive review of over 1,960 clinical studies, the National Reading Panel has gone as far as to say that "teaching phonics and phonemic awareness produces better reading results than whole language programs. Teaching phonemic awareness improves a child's reading, reading comprehension, and spelling abilities." The NRP findings also indicated that teaching to read programs involving phonemic awareness is far superior at improving a child's reading ability than a learning to read program that does not involve phonemic awareness instructions at all.
Do Not Start Teaching Your Child to Read
With Sight Words!
Sight words are high frequency words that should be known by "sight". With that broad definition, up to 75% of all the words in beginning children's print material are sight words! I have a very different definition where only words that cannot be decoded easily are considered sight words.
In schools and everywhere else, children are encouraged to memorize the configurations of words. In the earlier grades, children bring home from school a handful of "sight words" to memorize each week, and I get a good chuckle as I skim through the sight words my kids must memorize. Using my definition, almost none of these words can be considered sight words, and besides, my children could read all of these words at just 2 years old.
So why is it a bad idea to start teaching using sight words? Great question!
You see, English is an alphabetic language where the words we see comprise of individual letters or a combination of letters which represent different sounds, and these sounds combine together to form the words we hear. When you teach the memorization of sight words, you are in effect teaching English as if it were an ideographic language such as Chinese, where each character represents a meaning, and the only way to learn is to memorize the shapes of the characters.
When a child learns to "read" through memorizing word shapes, that child must rely on visual cues to try to figure out what a word is, and this quickly leads to confusion and frustration. The key stumbling block is that there are so many words with similar shapes that look alike! This method also puts severe limitations on how many words a child can learn to "read", or memorize.
The confusion of word shapes is often a cause of reading difficulties leading to skipped, inserted, and substituted words. And so often, when I work with students with reading difficulties, I have to first break their habit of seeing words as a whole, and show them that there is a simple and effective way to figure out what a word is by its parts.

Bonus #3: Letter Sound MP3 Audio Clips
As you know by now, developing phonemic awareness is one of the most important aspects that's essential to achieve reading success. Phonemic awareness deals with phonemes which are the smallest units of sound. For example, the letter A makes the /a/ ("ah") sound.
However, as parents who went through this entire process we know how critical it is for you to know and be able to produce the proper sounds for all the letters of the alphabet. This is why we created a full set of mp3 audio clips demonstrating in detail on how to properly sound out each of the alphabet letters, so that you are better equipped to teach your child to sound out words, and read words, sentences, and stories.
Value: $49.95 yours Free
Bonus #4: The Most Common Sight Words
Our program is superb at helping children develop phonemic awareness and reading skills; however, the English language is not a simple and straightforward language where everything can be neatly categorized to fit certain rules of reading or decoding. There are many words that simply cannot be decoded or sounded out, and are known to the reader automatically. These are known as sight words.
Sight words are pronounced without decoding the spelling of the word, and we want to help you become aware of some of the most common sight words that you and your child will encounter. The more you know, the better you're able to teach your child to read.
Value: $14.95 yours Free
