This handbook combines phonics lessons with what its authors describe as a “holistic, literature-based approach” to teaching reading, writing and speaking. Subjects covered include reading aloud, book clubs and vocabulary development. While the book is aimed primarily at teachers, it’s a great resource for out-of-school programs whose mission includes developing literacy skills. (201) 748-6395,
