Better Late than Early
An Excerpt from: Homeschooling for Success - How Parents can Create a Superior Education for their Child
 
Who Wants to be a Reader?
All children want to become readers, eager to open wide an important door to independent learning. Children begin to differ, however, when it comes to the when, why, how, and what of reading. By being aware of and honoring these differences, parents can prepare the smoothest, most direct road to reading proficiency and a lifelong enjoyment of the skill. For a growing number of parents, hearing a child put together his first print sentence is thrilling, heartwarming, and easier than you may have imagined.
