This book was written for parents to supplement classroom learning through activities that could be done in the home. This emphasis on developing a positive learning environment in the home makes this an excellent resource for homeschoolers. It offers practical tips on: (1) how to create interest in reading; (2) how to improve comprehension; (3) how to build skills at identifying words; (4) building vocabulary; (5) how to "read" graphs, maps, and tables; (6) how to increase flexibility and reading speed; and (7) how to select books across age categories.
