Book Review:
Learning How to Learn

This is the first piece of "curriculum" I teach my children once they know how to read. I don't know what I would have done without this book!

Ever get to the bottom of the page and can't recall what you just read? Or do your eyes ever start to hurt when studying? Ever get confused about something you're trying to learn?

Does your child ever experience these problems in his or her schooling?

The causes of these problems may not be what you expect - and the solution for each situation is so simple and effective!

This book has been so helpful to me in teaching my children, that I credit it with the fact that my son (who is 9) can read anything he wants. Currently he is reading Where the Red Fern Grows, which is generally read by teenagers. My 8 year old is reading Little House on the Prairie and she, too, has had great success in applying the techniques set forth in Learning How to Learn in her own study.

If you only purchase one book for your child's education, let it be this one.
