A Comprehensive Approach to Learning Language
With more than 300 parent/child activities, Road To Reading is the comprehensive phonics-based reading program that makes reading fun. "Touch and Learn" cards provide positive reinforcement through the use of the "Magic Pen." Each card teaches a basic concept -- shapes, colors, numbers, lower case and capital letters and the sounds of the alphabet...PHONICS!
There are over 300 minutes of audio content all done in the voices of children and adults -- for instance, "This Old Man," "Itsy Bitsy Spider," "ABC's" and "Twinkle Little Star." Researchers say the most important time for brain development is from just before birth through the first year. The more stimulation you provide during the first 12 months of life -- the more music, reading, talking, singing -- the more you are helping to maximize a child's development.
NOTE: Computers and Learning. Road To Reading is not a computer program, and for very good reason. Computers have become essential to our daily lives. But, as child development specialists have found, they are not always the best teaching tools for young children. Studies suggest that children who use computers too early have tested lower on basic skills like spelling, reading and pronunciation. Even social skills were a little behind.

What Parents Say
"Our daughter has been benefiting from the My Book House collection for a little more than a year now. She is 16 months old at present. She loves to be read to and knows that these are her books; she will bring them to us, lay the book in our hands then crawl into our lap. She is learning to identify things so quickly and is repeating many rhymes. Her favorite is The Barnyard. We enjoy learning the history of the rhymes and stories from the footnotes. What she is learning is worth far more than what we paid for the collection!...Thank you so much, we feel that you have given us a great gift."Paul & Michelle Garcia, Ontario, California
"My 2 1/2 year old and the baby are thoroughly enjoying the Road To Reading and they especially like Vol. 1, Nursery Rhymes, of the My Book House Collection. I would sincerely recommend this learning library to any person who is concerned about the education of their children." Katrina Subh, Yuba City, California
"Our girls are both in home reading programs at school. This requires them to read every evening...The wealth of literature and information contained in this assortment of learning materials is impressive. The parent information books are very helpful in discovering how our children learn and what to expect from them at each level of learning. We particularly like the way the whole system progresses along with the child...At long last something that helps the child and parent through the learning process."Mr. and Mrs. Gauthier, Calgary, Alberta
"Our son has a time before bed when either his father or I read to him to help him relax for the night. He loves the pictures and the rhymes. We even find him picking up packages and papers and looking at them like he is reading. That makes us sure we did the right thing."Mr. and Mrs. Mark Bobula, Burlington, Wisconsin
"As parents of two sons (2 ½ years old and 1 month old) we are thrilled with our ‘ROAD to READING’ materials that we purchased last year. The materials and the way the program is organized exceeded our already high expectations...Everyone has commented on our son’s advanced verbal abilities, his love and respect for books, and general comprehension - we thank your program for helping our son be the best he can while having lots of fun, too."Laurel Martin, Austin, Texas
"...I have also used or just begun using the ROAD TO READING material on a regular basis with my 2 year old. It’s been great for helping me with ideas of how to interact & involve my child in various activities. We have read to our child ever since she was born & before, so it’s also been nice to have the MY BOOK HOUSE series to add to our collection of other things to read."Richelle Schaff, Loveland, Colorado
"The tapes and phonics instruction have been introduced to him and at just a few weeks short of two he recognizes and recites both letters and numbers, although not in order or entirely. I, myself, have turned to the medical references almost monthly. Education begins at home. It doesn’t stop with potty training and manners it only begins there. You have our sincere appreciation for a marvelous compilation of materials, enjoyed by all members of the family."Carrie Carmody Haynes, Tampa, Florida
"Our Son, who is 19 months old, will go and get the Nursery Rhymes book edition #1 and bring it to us to read to him. He really enjoys listening to us read to him. ...With the cassettes & games & stories & information we received through your company, our children will now have the world at their fingertips! Thank you so much for putting together an educational tool that children of all ages can learn from & grow while having lots of fun!"Mr. & Mrs. Brian Porter & "family," Naples, Florida
"We purchased the My Book House series approximately 11 months ago for our 2 and 4 year old daughters and have been delighted with the program. The My Book House series provides a wonderful collection of age appropriate stories that the girls truly enjoy. They look forward to spending 10-15 minutes a day learning colors, shapes and phonics and should be well prepared to start kindergarten. Most importantly the girls love to be read to. We feel that this program has been a wonderful investment in their future and will instill a lifelong love of reading. Thank you so much for the program." Mr. & Mrs. Russell Pascua, Arvada, Colorado
