Pamela Brookes DOG ON A LOG Pup Books are a wonderful, affordable resource for teaching phonics in a very systematic approachable manner. The information in the books is very well researched and numerous parent/child friendly activities are provided at each step along the path to teaching phonics. Since the writer has a daughter with a diagnosis of dyslexia, she has personal insight into the struggles both parent and child encounter during the process of teaching a dyslexic child to read. These struggles, along with practical solutions, are addressed. As members of a multi-disciplinarian team, speech pathologists are playing a more active role in the diagnostics and intervention of children with dyslexia and others with reading challenges. This series would be a very valuable tool for speech pathologists, other educators and parents who are teaching struggling readers.
