    Review quote
    "Like the prior edition, this is a much-needed 'how-to' for classroom teachers that also warrants close attention from education professors and literacy coaches. No other book so thoroughly (but succinctly) summarizes the history of phonics instruction, explicates its role in reading development, and offers such a wealth of ideas for assessment, curriculum, and instruction. Call it 'one-stop shopping' for this pivotal issue in reading instruction! This is a book that preservice and in-service teachers will turn to repeatedly, long after purchase. It is a great text for undergraduate methods classes and reading endorsement master's classes, as well as a resource for professional learning communities." - Kathleen J. Brown, PhD, University of Utah Reading Clinic, USA "I recommend this second edition as a text for preservice and inservice teacher education courses. The book not only demonstrates how to teach a variety of phonics strategies, but also explains why the strategies need to be taught this way. Teachers will appreciate the examples of students' misconceptions, as well as the word lists and assessment tools in the appendices."- Barbara R. Foorman, Francis Eppes Professor of Education and Director, Florida Center for Reading Research, Florida State University, USA "I am certain that teachers - and all professionals interested in making sure children learn to read well - will find this book thought provoking and invaluable. The seminal research presented is rigorous yet highly accessible, and is illustrated with instructive, entertaining anecdotes. The new and expanded chapters in the second edition provide an eloquent picture of the challenging tasks that young children face as they learn to read, and show how to help them surmount these challenges." - Carol McDonald Connor, PhD, Learning Sciences Institute and Department of Psychology, Arizona State University "This second edition couldn't have come at a more opportune time. As teachers search for 'evidence-based practices' in the area of beginning reading, they will not find another book that provides such a seamless integration of research and practice. Making Sense of Phonics is among the most comprehensive and readable books available on the topic of beginning reading. It is a 'must read' for both new and veteran teachers who are committed to ensuring that all of their students become successful and joyful readers." - Marcy Stein, PhD, Education Program, University of Washington, Tacoma
