A full update of the national bestseller The Reading Solution.

In the early nineties, author and educator Paul Kropp wrote perhaps the most useful Canadian book ever on the subject of reading. Almost a decade later literacy is still the most pressing educational and family issue of our time. With the runaway speed of technology, it's even more important that children learn to read and continue reading throughout their lifetime.

Now, in The New Reading Solution, Paul Kropp takes a careful look at the changes in how Canadian children are learning to read. As well as addressing the importance of phonemics to early childhood literacy skills, danger times in reading and reading for the new millennium, Kropp includes updated lists of suggested children's books, up-to-the-minute material on tutoring and province-wide testing, a discussion about the limitations of "whole language" and new information about the impact of computers on children's reading patterns.
The New Reading Solution shows parents how to encourage their child's reading progress and advises them on how to work with a child's school to enhance learning.

Practical, provocative, thoughtful and chockfull of great ideas, information and advice, The New Reading Solution is still the most important book parents will buy for their children.

If you are struggling to help a child you know learn to love reading, then this is the perfect book for you. Not only is there great advice, tips, and practical suggestions, Paul Kropp has included some very good illustrations from his own experience. Helpful grey boxes intersprese the readable text creating different ways to help get the message across - reading is fun!
