Skittles, coffee, a bunch of experience and so much heart. That is what Raising A Rock-Star Reader was written with. My co-author Amy Mascott and I put our hearts into this book. True self-promotion is not easy for me but you guys, this book is good, it’s really something I am so proud of. Although I teach preschool I am actually trained for junior kindergarten ( PreK) through 6th grade and I focused my elementary education degree on early literacy. In the dozen years since I’ve spent countless hours teaching, tutoring and working with my own kids on the foundations of literacy in developmentally appropriate ways. Amy who is a reading specialist ( which means she has a graduate degree in reading instruction) and I joined forces to share all our best bits of knowledge with you and we are thrilled with the response so far. I can not wait for you all to read it!

Here are some of the things educators have been saying:
The business of helping someone learn to read can be overwhelming–there’s just so much pressure and confusion! The authors have broken it down into bite-size, palatable chunks that parents can have the confidence to implement with their kids. This is a book I can recommend to my friends without worrying that it will stress them out. It’s so good. – Megan from Coffee Cups & Crayons
As an educator, I’ve had many parents ask what they can do to help their child learn to read. THIS is the book that would hand to them! It’s practical, hands-on, simple, and gets to the root of what builds real literacy in young children. It’s not gimmicks or fads, it’s the experiences that help wire the brain for meaningful literacy. LOVE this book! – Amanda from Not Just Cute
As you can imagine we are THRILLED with this response and these are only a few of the many great reviews.
