Book 1: "Before the Squiggle Code (A Roadmap to Reading)" Starts at the very beginning of the learning to read process: it helps the learner hear the smallest sounds in words. Relevant excerpts from "Teaching a Struggling Reader: One Mom's Experience with Dyslexia" are also included to help parents with children who are struggling to read.
Book 2: "The Squiggle Code (Letters Make Words)" Helps the learner discover that each sound has a letter or letters and when the letters are put together, they make words. This is when reading begins.
