A plain-English guide to teaching phonics. Every parent can teach reading; no experts need apply!

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.

  1. 5 out of 5 Lovely AND Excellent

    We appreciate this program so much; this is the best reading program we have found for a number of readings: the daily lessons are short and well-planned, the lessons are logically sequenced, the lessons are appropriately contextualized (none of that nonsense about memorizing sight words before one learns to read), and parents are given a great deal of support throughout the book. I love programs that empower parents and children to determine how learning takes place. You can start this program when your child is 4, 5, 6, or 7, even. You can learn a section at a time, taking breaks in between, or just keep on going, steadily, day by day. The activities are short, fun, and effective. Both of my boys love being able to play language games, jump on word cards, make silly sentences, and go on reading-based scavenger hunts (all of which are in this book). The price is more than fair for the value of what you actually receive from this book; the book can be used for one child after another, so that is an added money saver. I recommend this book to everyone who is looking for a reading program because all children will benefit, whether they have learning differences or are intellectually gifted.

  2. 5 out of 5 Thorough - no other resource needed

    This book goes into each sound so well – I’ve considered bringing some lessons to my students in 11th grade in public school! I’ve had to learn how to move at the right pace for my kindergartener (even slower than 2 review, 1 new pace – we’ve repeated and repeated so many times!) but the stories have enough variety in content to keep him reading. We also do Bob books and other early readers from the library to supplement “lessons”.
