After a few days of Alpha-Phonics my son declared,
"Mom, these are really going to help me learn to read!"

The amazing people at Alpha-Phonics would like to give you the opportunity to win a Complete copy of their Alpha-Phonics Primer for Beginning Readers!
This book set is an $80 value and comes with:
- Step by Step Manual
- 10 fun companion readers
- Workbook pages for written reinforcement of the lessons
First impression: It was pretty plain to look at. I know, do not judge a book by its cover. I am just being honest. I tend to migrate toward the shiny and colorful. I was so glad I had the chance to get to know these books!
I watched the online videos and began to see the heart of the people behind the product. I appreciated that they made the conscious decision to keep costs down so they could pass on quality products to homeschoolers like me.
After a few weeks of working through the program with my very own reluctant reader (he's 8 years old) I have begun to see great progress. The selling point for me was the straight-forward formatting of the books themselves. My son had become an expert at "guessing" what words on a page should be simply by either looking the the pictures or reading the contextual clues in the text. He could not do that with these alpha-phonics readers. He actually had to read the words.
Two Thumbs Up: I would highly recommend the Alpha-Phonics, readers, and workbook for those of you that have early readers or frustrated readers like me. It is definitely working for us!
