    "Uncovering the Logic of English will be really helpful for teaching reading to children who are
    mathematical pattern thinkers..."

    --Temple Grandin author of Thinking in Pictures

    "Uncovering the Logic of English" is a thoughtful guide for anyone who wants to understand language better or is looking
    for advice to help them teach it." --Midwest Book Review

    "A gem of a book... This is a very useful book for teachers, parents and anyone interested in bringing the joy of
    reading to our nation's children." --Dr Reid Lyon

    "The "thrust" of this book might be better described if the title was changed to The Heartbreak of English: a Logical
    Means of Recovery." --Retired 3M Engineer

    From the Inside Flap
    --------------------

    It is generally believed that English is a language of exceptions. For many, learning to spell and read is
    frustrating. For some, it is impossible... especially for the 29% of Americans who are functionally illiterate.But what
    if the problem is not the language itself, but the rules we were taught? What if we could see the complexity of English
    as a powerful tool rather than a hindrance?—Denise Eide Uncovering the Logic of English challenges the notion that
    English is illogical by systematically explaining English spelling and answering questions like “Why is there a silent
    final e in have, large, and house?” and “Why is discussion spelled with —sion rather than —tion?” With easy-to-read
    examples and anecdotes, this book describes: • the phonograms and spelling rules which explain 98% of English words.•
    how English words are formed and how this knowledge can revolutionize vocabulary development.• how understanding the
    reasons behind English spelling prevents students from needing to guess.The author's inspiring commentary makes a
    compelling case that understanding the logic of English could transform literacy education and help solve america's
    literacy crisis. Thorough and filled with the latest linguistic and reading research, Uncovering the Logic of English
    demonstrates why this systematic approach should be as foundational to our education system as 1 + 1 = 2.?

    "English is so illogical!"

    It is generally believed that English is a language of exceptions. For many, learning to spell and read is frustrating.
    For some, it is impossible... especially for the 29% of Americans who are functionally illiterate.

    * But what if the problem is not the language itself, but the rules we were taught? What if we could see the complexity
    of English as a powerful tool rather than a hindrance?

    Uncovering the Logic of English challenges the notion that English is illogical by systematically explaining English
    spelling and answering questions like "Why is there a silent final E in have, large, and house?" and "Why is discussion

    * the phonograms and spelling rules which explain 98% of English words
    * how English words are formed and how this knowledge can revolutionize vocabulary development
    * how understanding the reasons behind English spelling prevents students from needing to guess.
