Melvine Groves, inspired by her years of being an educator and her desire to get youngsters ready for reading, shares a “Workbook for Basic Phonics” (published by Xlibris). This book gives added strength and structure to the learning process of pre-school and first grade children.

Recent research confirms that the first five years are particularly important for the development of the child's brain, and the first three years are the most critical in shaping the child's brain architecture. With this in mind, Groves allows parents to have a handy guide in teaching their young ones or getting them ready to enter the exciting world of reading.

Groves strongly points out the role of phonetic phonics, those phonetic symbols and sounds as roads that pave the way to reading. For her, the road to the reading journey is best started with the strong foundations of being familiar with the basics of sounds and symbols.

“I want readers to understand and recognize that this is a necessary foundation for all children who are beginning and anxious to learn how to read and learning the letter sounds, their colors and vowel sounds which will lead the way to reading sentences,” Groves says.
