 One of the best ways to inspire reading is first to inspire the love of stories. In his unique book, Dad, Tell Me A Story, John McCormick shows parents how easy it is to begin the tradition of storytelling with your children. Don’t wait to try this one.

Of all the methods I would recommend, Neurological Impress is the most useful and easiest one to implement. Take time to read this article, and try it out.

Reading Horizons At-Home Phonics Program

This program, which has a moderate cost but is well-worth it, is a thorough program especially useful for home schooling parents. It covers absolutely everything needed to teach reading, in a very systematic way. The materials have been recently upgraded to make them more user friendly for home-schooling parents and other home users.

Reading Rockets

I love this site. It has so many reading resources, including videos of TV episodes, articles by experts, and lots and lots of useful information for reading. Fabulous public service website.

This interesting website offers recommendations for reading readiness in Kindergarten.  I encourage parents not to be too aggressive about kindergarten reading, as it is so important to let children have time to develop their physical coordination first before encouraging reading.
