This book supports teachers using phonics in their teaching of early reading. The authors show how important it is to ensure that children acquire a wide range of reading strategies, while also setting out practical 'pointers' which will enable teachers to translate the theory into effective practice. Readers will learn:

- How to plan phonics within a rich, interactive and playful literacy pedagogy

- How to construct relationships with the young readers in their classes and the texts around them

- How to embed the teaching of phonics in carefully selected high quality materials - particularly in children's literature.

Written for practicing teachers, student teachers on initial teacher training courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, the book will also be useful for advisors working on continuing professional development.

Dr Kathy Goouch and Dr Andrew Lambirth are based at Canterbury Christ Church University in the field of early and primary education and literacy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Informed by their own extensive teaching experience and research knowledge, Kathy Goouch and Andrew Lambirth provide the field with a principled and carefully argued text which should be owned, referred to and cherished by every teacher of young children. I hope it will also be read (properly!) by every politician who has been seduced by the idea of a quick, formulaic 'phonics first/only' approach to universal literacy' -

'Authored by Kathy Goouch and Andrew Lambirth who have extensive knowledge and experience from their professional backgrounds as teachers, researchers and teacher educators, Teaching Early Reading and Phonics is a seminal text for all those involved in promoting literacy especially among the very young. In my view the beauty of this book is two-fold: firstly its argument is grounded in long established and more recent understanding about learning though the authors bring freshness, vigour and candour to this understanding as they address all relevant aspects of teaching reading and the role of phonics. Secondly is its directness in naming, explaining and addressing the misconceptions in current policy and practice on the teaching of reading so that the 'fight back' the book initiates invites a more thoughtful and professional direction for the way forward. This book most definitely 'stands out from the crowd' as a pivotal text that should be essential reading on the teaching of reading' -

This easy-to-read book presents nonpolitical and sensible approaches to teaching reading...This reviewer really enjoyed this direct book and believes it will be excellent for beginning teachers and parents. Highly recommended
