Why Start Early?

Why do some experts say babies can’t really learn to read?

Here’s what Dr Richard Gentry, former university professor and elementary school teacher, and author of Raising Confident Readers, has to say:

Some experts don’t understand the importance of early ‘word reading’. Baby/toddler readers likely go through a different set of steps for organizing the reading brain circuitry than six-year-old non-readers who learn to read from formal instruction in school. Some experts don’t recognize that babies pick up reading easily from developmentally appropriate interactions with parents and they have special language capacities from birth to age three, just as they do with learning multiple languages, enabling them to do remarkable things with learning to read during this special window of opportunity for brain development. Most of the experts who are skeptical think real reading begins with phonics and they don’t recognize that given the right exposure, toddlers can intuit the rules of phonics over time just like they intuit the rules of grammar which are necessary to speak in sentences.

Our Experience with Little Reader

We used Little Reader to teach my son to read from age 1. When he was 2, he could recognise words and read them aloud to me. By the time he was 5, he could read Peter and Jane: Adventure on the Island from the Ladybird reading series. This has been the result of his early exposure to reading with Little Reader. If I had another child, I would definitely use Little Reader again.
