Unraveling Reading by Daniela Silva is chock full of great practical advice and tips for teaching young people to read. I can’t think of many more useful and necessary reasons to write a book. Reading has played a huge role in my life. It determines how I think and what I think about much more than TV or any other medium does. My mother instilled this love of reading in me. She was a librarian. She is also the one that taught me to read and I thank her for it every day. Now I teach children to read and I think this book is going to help me do this a little more efficiently. I already use a lot of the things Daniela talks about, but I saw some new ideas that look like they may be useful.

Unraveling Reading is published by the New Heights Education Group and Daniela Silva tells us a little about the group and its mission. I must say I am impressed with their goals. There should be groups like this all around America, focusing not just on reading, but all aspects and areas of our children’s education. I found Unraveling Reading to be well written, well organized, and full of ideas and advice that will help parents, educators, and anyone else attempting to give children one of the most precious gifts you can give a child. An introduction to the world of books. Unraveling Reading is a very useful tool and Daniela Silva should be commended for writing it. I’m passionate about reading. I think everyone should be.
