              This is a beautiful program. The decoding technique is incredibly important so kids avoid bad habits like "look and guess". Do your young kids a huge favor and teach them to read with a time-honored phonics method like this. Plus the stories are beautiful and precious... a rarity nowadays in kids books.

              I have shared these books before and I cannot stress enough how life changing these have been for my daughter. What drew me in first was the beautiful illustrations. But what keeps me raving about these books is the structure of the writing.

              Hazel can READ!! She can read Book 1 from Dash into learning all by herself! We have been working on som sight words and word families here an there. I don't think she really understood what she was learning at the time until she finished reading her first book and it all clicked! I will never forget that moment and the look on her face...she was so surprised and proud of herself! So thankful to homeschool...I don't want to miss moments like these.

              My daughter is a very very very reluctant reader. She is 6 years old and reading was something she didn't like to do. She likes me reading to her but when it's her turn, she keeps saying it's too hard or confusing. I didn't want to force her because maybe she wasn't ready. I saw your program on Instagram and thought that the books looks so beautiful We got the last week not expecting my daughter to even be interested. After the first book, something clicked! I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!

              Charlie is developing a love of reading! We really love the Dash into Learning books! Such darling illustrations

              It is no secret that Madelyn has struggled with reading. She becomes easily frustrated and discouraged. We take it slow and at her pace. I stumbled across these books on Instagram and instantly fell in love. First because these books are so beautifully made. Second, because these books are right at Madelyn's pace. She is constantly pulling these out to look through and perfect. I make sure she reds and repeats the stories till she can easily read through the entire book.
