The book, used for almost 30 years by thousands is now faithfully reproduced on CD. And the CD ROM, like the book, is SIMPLE! No frills, no nonsense! SPOKEN and WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS: Now the Alpha-Phonics program, Sam's easy to follow written instructions PLUS Sam's own spoken instructions are available together on your computer. IT WORKS: Thousands have told Sam over the years that his systematic, intensive phonics reading program is SIMPLE and easy to teach, is very effective and very easy for the student to learn. They all say: it works! Also it TEACHES SPELLING: Not only is Alpha-Phonics one of the easiest, least expensive programs to use to teach reading, but it automatically teaches SPELLING as you go through its easy-to-teach lessons. There are over 3,500 words introduced in Alpha-Phonics! And now they are also on the CD ROM. The CD displays all 128 lessons of Alpha-Phonics exactly as they appear in this highly successful book. The CD is extremely easy to use: It has Auto start which allows it to open right to the lessons by just popping it into your CD Drive. The pages of Alpha-Phonics almost magically come alive on your computer screen. See - hear - teach -learn!! CD includes informative tips for use which make this easy to use system even easier. NO KEYBOARDING! Alpha-Phonics the Book on CD ROM is simpler than many other computer based programs. One big reason is because in requires NO KEYBOARDING work for students. (The Student uses ONLY the mouse) This is best for little beginners who can not type yet and who would start forming bad hunt and peck habits which will be hard to break later when touch typing is to be learned. So they are only asked to use the mouse. Alpha-Phonics the Book on CD ROM lets parent or teacher and the student see and hear the instructions at the same time. Then, with a click of the mouse the student moves to and sees his or her lesson in extra large type without any instructions or other clutter to distract him or her. NOTE: Parents can use either the book or the CD ROM to teach their student. Each version is a complete phonics reading instruction program (The book version is available at Amazon.com) If the budget allows it is helpful to use BOTH the book version and the CD ROM version, working back and forth between the two types. The reason many feel both are better is that they believe young students need to learn that in our computer driven world we will always need BOOKS.

From the Inside Flap:

This book can solve America's reading problem! Letters to the author from parents; I must write to express my wife's and my thanks for your excellent book. It has been so valuable to us in teaching our 8-1/2-year-old son, Eric, to read When I started on September 10, Eric was almost totally restricted as a reader. I followed your book's instructions exactly. Would you believe we went from Lesson 2 through Lesson 27 in two weeks? And by Thanksgiving we had drilled through Lesson 117. Even you wouldn't believe the results! It was if we were witnessing a miracle Eric is now reading Robinson Crusoe, and is just loving it! He had been having headaches all through second grade and was losing weight. Since he started learning by your method, he hasn't been sick one day, and has gained weight rapidly to where he has a perfect physique. Needless to say, we are grateful. Thank you so much for your excellent effort in helping countless parents, such as ourselves, in warding off the educational crippling of countless children.

My daughter is almost 6 years old and we are home educating her. I have tried a couple of reading programs, most of which were game type learning. None of these produced any results. I recently ordered Alpha-Phonics because I heard Samuel Blumenfeld speak on several shows. Dianna and I are just beginning lesson 5. After going over lessons 3 and 4 Dianna was so excited that she could read that she hugged my neck and told me she loved me. She said, "Oh mommy, my wish is coming true. You and daddy are teaching me to read." What else can I say? I love this systematic way of teaching reading because it produces immediate results and children, as well as adults, like to see progress. By the way, we only spend five to ten minutes a day on this.
