Review:

"How the Brain Learns to Read makes the important connections between reading and brain research accessible for teachers and parents. It is definitely a book that I will recommend to teachers and my undergraduate and graduate students." (Diane Barone, Professor of Literary Studies)

"How the Brain Learns to Read is a comprehensive, teacher-friendly book. Sousa not only clarifies the complex act of reading, he provides practical ′use-tomorrow′ strategies and guidelines for designing a successful reading program. This book makes a significant contribution to the field. I highly recommend it." (Pat Wolfe)

"Sousa has hit a home run with How the Brain Learns to Read, giving us a specific application of brain research that takes us from generalizing about how the brain learns to read. " (Robin Fogarty, Educational Consultant)
