Having used the concepts from this book, I was able to tutor a third grader who was two
grades behind to the point where she was actually above grade level. All of this with only
45 minutes a week from me and 15 minutes of daily practice reading with her father. At the
beginning of the semester she was almost put in the special education class, by the end of
the semester she was reading with her peers. This book is so easy to read and well laid out
that anyone can become a successful tutor for almost any child. Peggy explains the reasons
for reading difficulties along with the solutions. She even includes practical reading aids
in the back of the book. Nothing is left to chance. Not just a teach your child to read book,
but also a teach yourself to tutor book.

Reading Rescue 1-2-3 is a wonderfully well thought out book that lays out a complete reading
foundations program for parents and beginning primary teachers. For the parent of a child
entering kindergarten who shows signs of early interest in reading, this lays out a step by
step program for them to build on that interest. For the parents of a child struggling to
acquire reading skills, this easy to follow format shows lessons that they can do with their
child to build the reading foundations. For the parents of an older child who may have a
reading disability, this is a wonderfully well put together book. Clear and well written,
this book shines. Simply superb! Thank you Peggy Wilber!

I homeschooled my children and taught Kindergarten and First Grade in public and private
schools. Where was this book when I needed it? As I went through the chapters, I easily
identified students I had worked with (under a cloud of frustration both on their parts and
mine.) The information is set up in these chapters so that even non-professional educators
can understand. And I think the point is that parents have more of a chance to impact their
children's reading ability than some teachers ever dreamed. This encouraging book is a must
for any parent kid team currently wrestling with beginning reading. AND ... for those kids
who have hit a brick wall, here's the answer.
