Take charge of your child’s literacy with this jargon-free phonics guide. Too many parents watch their children struggle with early reading skills — and don’t know how to help. Many phonics programs are too often complicated, overpriced, gimmicky, and filled with obscure educationalese.

The Ordinary Parent’s Guide to Teaching Reading cuts through the confusion, giving parents a simple, direct, scripted guide to teaching reading — from short vowels through supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. The Ordinary Parent’s Guide to Teaching Reading is user-friendly, affordable, and easy to follow — supplying you with everything you need to teach reading in one book. This program teaches all 72 phonograms, one at a time, and has built in review.

Clarification: we do NOT offer a guarantee that children who learn phonics from The Ordinary Parent’s Guide to Teaching Reading will win the spelling bee. We only guarantee that they will grow up to be avid readers with fantastic grades who get into elite universities, then proceed to change the world with their creativity, erudition, and passion, while respecting rich and poor alike, and calling their parents at least twice a week with genuine gratitude and in-depth updates. 

That’s all. Just wanted to clarify that, so as not to raise unreasonable expectations.
