Product Description


"An absolute must-read, must-understand, and must-do for all primary teachers and principals. Nevills and Wolfe's book addresses the difficult issues of diagnosis and intervention with early readers before they begin to struggle." -- Judy Bean, Director of Curriculum, Instruction, & Assessment "A unique resource that provides a biological foundation for effective reading strategies. It is a valuable resource for any educator." -- Deborah Tucker, Science and Literacy Education Consultant "The research information is powerful for educators to interpret for practical, everyday use and can be supplemented with current reading curriculum." -- J. Michael Pragman, Elementary Administrator, Lee's Summit R-7 School District, MO "I devoured this book! The book makes research come alive and accessible whether you are new to literacy work or have been immersed in it for years!" -- Sharon Gatti-Carson, Literacy Consultant "Besides providing comprehensible information on neuroscience and learning, the book gives many excellent strategies and ideas for working with a variety of readers from emergent literacy through third grade. I highly recommend this book for all educators at all age levels." -- Janet J. Seahorn, Adjunct Professor, Colorado State University and Regis University "This is an amazing resource for all persons interested in improving their instructional practice or understanding of how the young child's brain is wired for reading, and how tapping into strategic reading practices will promote comprehension, fluency, and reading enjoyment. The authors make the most current research in neuroscience and reading engaging and interesting. This well-constructed book is one of my favorites!" -- Jill Gierach, Director

HASH(0xa3f736f0) out of 5 stars Great Book! Sept. 30 2007
By A. Marcus - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was a good find! It was a quick read but had a lot of great information. It was nice to find a book about Literacy that started from square one with infancy and went through third grade. It's a true Early Childhood book on Literacy.

HASH(0xa42a503c) out of 5 stars Reading Specialist Recommendation Sept. 6 2009
By Ruth Hawkins - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have been a reading specialist in Connecticut for eleven years. Having read many books pertaining to the subject matter, I recommend this book to new teachers and veterans who need to update their knowledge about reading. This book is outlined well, defines the different components of reading well, and provides explicit examples to help all educators. I plan on purchasing this book for a school wide book talk. It is that good! University teachers should recommend this book to all teachers.
