In December 2005, Education Secretary, Ruth Kelly called for a shake-up of the methods used in primary schools for teaching reading to ensure that the system of using synthetic phonics is introduced and promoted as early as possible. "Teach Your Child to Read" is a comprehensive reading primer based entirely on synthetic phonics. Separated into six easy-to-follow sections, it takes children step-by-step through the complexities of the English language so that they learn how to reason, analyse and work out its problems for themselves. Easy to use and packed with stories, nursery rhymes and enchanting illustrations, this book will help ensure children have an early, trouble-free and confident mastery of reading - their passport to a successful future.
