Pictures Words: The Second Book This book is a direct continuation of Picture Words: The First Book – we just had too much fun to fit it all into one volume! Both books were written for my son, who was drowning in frustration. Those pesky b’s and d’s kept switching around on him, and there were too many letter sounds to keep straight. Frustration at the unknown would assail him within the first few minutes of each lesson, and he would shut down. I had an excellent phonics book to sequence his learning, but needed to somehow translate it into material that he could teach himself. It all begins with “picture letters”. Pictures inside of the letters put the clues right where young readers need them – taking away the overwhelming unknown and leaving the student free to stretch, grow, and absorb an understanding of reading. Think of the process of learning how to read. In your mind, compare it to the process of learning how to walk. These books are an aid – the fingers of Mama to clutch, the couch to hang on to, the stroller to toddler behind. But just as a baby/toddler gains confidence to step out on their own and walk free, so, too will your student naturally transfer the knowledge gained in these books to plain old “black letters”. Picture Words allows your student to “peek under” the letter’s exterior to see what they are really doing. They will never forget these peeks – and in their mind’s eye will probably be seeing these pictures within their words for years to come. I was trained as a remedial reading teacher, but no one ever mentioned phonics in my training. In the process of teaching my own children, I have discovered connections and relationships between the letters that make so much sense – ones I’ve never seen anyone else explain. It turns out that our language isn’t nearly as complicated or disorganized as I’d always assumed! If you are tired of teaching phonics as a list of dry rules to less-than-contented students, I hope this book will be a blessing to you and yours!

Until this Covid nonsense is over, my books will be available in digital PDF form, mailed on small USB memory sticks. I cannot find anyone to print them for a reasonable cost at this time!

Thank you for [your diapering] video! I was so impressed that I looked up your website. I was so impressed with your website, that I ordered from you. Then, I am so impressed with your personal customer service, that I'm going to tell all my friends about you and mention you in my blog!

I purchased cloth diapers from you at NICHE this year, thinking I would "give it a try" and "as a stay at home mom, I could just use the cloth ones at home." Well, this has caught full fire in our household, going nearly all cloth even on days when we leave the house from 8:30am to 8:30pm!
