The 2006 year is off to a great start with the arrival of our PACT manual “Reading is NOT Enough!” This 450 page book outlines the PACT program and is filled with practical information. The basic premise of the book is that if children learn, and adults go back and relearn, the fundamental academic basics to the point of mastery, they will become confident, independent learners. Some of these basics include: penmanship, sight words, phonics, structure in writing, math basics, and comprehension. “Reading is NOT Enough!” is a valuable resource for all educators and is useful for
therapeutic, remedial, and enrichment purposes. It is excellent for homeschoolers and makes a great gift from grandparents.
