|NUMBER 123||THE NEWSPAPER OF EDUCATION RIGHTS||APRIL 1996|
Thank you so much for your contribution to my grandchildren's development. Lindee started learning to read with First Reader at age five in September of 1994. Now she is half way through the first grade and reading almost daily. In fact, she is on her 142nd book since the beginning of the school year.
Emily started soon after Lindee at four-and-a-half years. At half-way through the school term, she has already read 122 books. She is now reading Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears by Leo and Diane Dillon, which is listed as a second-grade book.
I was so proud of Emily today at a school party as I watched her participate in a game. She was reading her own instructions while the others were giving their cards to their mothers to read.
Andee, the youngest, just turned four. This month, she has learned her vowels and can read the "M" page almost perfectly. We are well on our way! I am so excited about my three little "grands" reading so well at such an early age.
|First Reader is now out of print. But, it has been revised. The new edition is called Turbo Reader that is suitable for all ages.|
