    Becoming a family that reads aloud together was one of the most enjoyable journeys my family made. I only wish this book had been available when we transitioned into a read aloud family!

    Are you looking to introduce the reading of "living literature" into your home but feel overwhelmed at the vast array of books available? While there are many books available to guide you in selecting books, Read for the Heart is written from the perspective of a home educated young lady who was home educated in a family which successfully incorporated living literature into their home. Sarah Clarkson, daughter of Clay and Sally Clarkson, shares the inspiration and vision for incorporating literature into our homes through research, personal stories and suggestions on how to make reading a reality in your home. Her goal is simply to equip you to develop a reading habit within your own home, and with this book she has accomplished this goal.

    The first three chapters focus on helping you develop the habit of reading in your home. The following chapter is intended to give you a "road map" on using this book most effectively. The remaining chapters contain the booklists and are organized according to types of books. Each chapter focuses on one of the following eight literature categories: Picture Books, Golden Age Classics, Children's Fiction, Fairy Tales and Fantasy, History and Biography, Spiritual Reading, Poetry and Music, and Art and Nature. Prior to the lists, Sarah shares personal stories as well as explanations on why certain books are included in each category. This is specifically beneficial when considering the Fairy Tales and Fantasy Category. Within each chapter, book recommendations are organized by author and include a brief book review. This book review includes author's name, original publication date, award(s), illustrator, general age category, a short review, and any cautions you, the parent, should know regarding mature or questionable content. Appendices at the end of this book provide you quick references for finding books. These lists include Caldecott Medalists, Newberry Medalists, G.A. Henty Historical Fiction, Landmark History Books, Trailblazer Series, and Sarah's personal favorite literature for family read-aloud. All in all, this soft-cover book contains 384 pages of living literature inspiration for your family. The text is a larger print with ample margin space to record your own family favorites, thoughts, and memories. A delightful book that is sure to inspire you on your own journey of family reading. ~ Deanne

    These sturdy cards provide visual memory cues for the 28 rules taught in Spell to Write and Read. The front side provides a visual representation of the rule while the back states the rule itself. For example, the back side of the card for rule 20 states: "X is never directly before S (boxes, excel). There is an /s/ sound in X." The visual reminder is the letters XS circled with a slash though it.

    If conventional phonics is not working with your child, or if phonics instruction is turning your "eager to read-er" into a "do we have to?" reader, here's an approach you should try. Based on techniques used in the Reading Recovery program and on observations of methods used by "natural" readers (children who learn to read at young ages despite no formal instruction), this approach takes a middle road between phonics and "sight reading." It is designed to be used one-on-one in a tutoring situation – not in a classroom environment – so it works very well in a home school. The first ingredient is reading, reading, reading to your young child. Predictable readers are used heavily in beginning instruction so that the child can begin to "read" successfully without knowing all of the rules, and can begin to recognize letter-sound correlations in familiar words. Some separate phonics instruction is done as part of the lesson. Initially, letter sounds are taught. From there, instruction depends on the previous day's experience. However, most of the phonics instruction is done within the context of reading and writing about real stories in real books. Phonics rules are not learned in any set sequence, but as the need to use them arises. Books are reread until mastered, then rotated out, with a book on the "cutting edge" of the child's ability added to the mix. A list of recommended children's books is included.

    The author is no stranger to the "great debate" on reading instruction. He has sixteen years of experience teaching in both public and private schools and, as headmaster of a Christian school, oversaw a home education program in which he worked with parents teaching their children to read. He realizes the strong preference homeschoolers have for phonics, but he makes a great case for considering a less "pure" approach. I do think this book is worth reading. After reading it, I realized that my children all learned a little this way, despite my attempts to teach them strictly phonetically. When Mark was learning to read, he just wouldn't wait for me to slowly make it through our phonics program. Armed with the essential basics, he wanted to read, and proceeded to do so; reading and rereading familiar books until they were mastered, demanding explanations of unfamiliar constructs as he went, and then applying this knowledge the next time he encountered a similar phonetic construct. All this from a child who seemed almost dense to me (compared with his older sisters) when using a strictly phonetic method. On reflection, I think he might have done much better from the start if I'd read this book and employed some of these methods. While not for everyone, and certainly not for those of you who won't even consider less than "pure" phonics, I'm hoping this will help with children who may "fall through the cracks" using a traditional phonics approach.

    Read faster and retain more of what you read! Using a variety of diverse reading material such as editorials, letters, and primary source materials from several core subject areas, these lessons are geared to improve the student's speed of reading and overall comprehension, which should result in better test-taking skills. This workbook contains sixteen lessons focusing on specific reading skills including vocabulary building, eye movements, reading purpose, previewing, reading in thought, skimming and scanning for the main idea and details, study reading and memory, and how to improve your reading in specific subject areas such as math, social studies, science, and literature. Each lesson has five exercises. The lesson begins with a teacher page describing the skill, which could also be read by the student. Then students work through an interpretation exercise, perception exercise, comprehension exercise, and two stories with questions for the student to answer to determine their average comprehension score and effective word-per-minute speed. Answers are included at the end of the book. This workbook could easily be used for self-study by an individual student or in a "class" situation, as the exercise pages are reproducible. What I like best about this workbook is that it is very realistic in what words we should be able to read per minute (not skim or scan per minute). While other products make loftier promises, this workbook states that the maximum number of words read are 800-900 words per minute. Overall, this is a very thorough course that will teach you how to speed read without sacrificing reading comprehension. – Jess

    As a literature major, I used to get teased about owning “books about books.” But what better way to introduce yourself to the cream of the crop as you select your next book to read? This compendium examines 25 books (from the third
    century to the 20th) that are crucial to Christian discipleship, and thereby, the future of the Christian church. This is not an anthology, but a tool to help you understand each book, summarizing main themes, examining its importance to
    Christianity. For each book, a set of study questions and a reading guide is provided. To give you a sense of the author’s style and a taste of the writing, a sample of each work is included. The genres covered range from poetry to theological treatises, from nonfiction to fiction. While the selected writings span centuries, they also encompass a range of Western and Eastern, Catholic and Protestant church backgrounds. The editors warn that these 25 are challenging
    reads - to the brain and the soul. But with challenges come rewards. Some inclusions are predictable such as C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity; others, such as Dostoevsky’s, The Brothers Karamazov, are a surprise. Compiled and written
    by Renovaré, an organization whose goal is to spur others on to become increasingly like Jesus. An additional, detailed list of contemporary Christian authors and their influential works is also provided. 6.75” x 9”, 390 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
