These projects actually began six years ago, before the birth of our first son when we were first introduced to the concept of teaching babies to read.
We weren’t completely sure that this approach would work, but we decided to give it a try because we could only see potential benefits and no downside. We figured the worst that could happen was that he wouldn’t learn to read any earlier and that we would just be spending intentional time together with our son.
Throughout that pregnancy, we began to research and prepare computer-based flashcards. When Aaron was two and a half weeks old, we began to show him reading cards, just a few minutes each day (when we had the time). To our surprise, he started reading at nine months.
Today, five years later, he can read college level material. We have had two boys since then, both of whom have learned to read extremely early as well. You can read more about our journey to early literary fluency with our sons in our Guidebook to Early Reading, and you can read about our heart behind early reading on our other blog.
Now, we are ready to start helping others on their early reading journey. Today, our technological and paper “baby twins” are born and ready to be announced to the world. In our Guidebook to Early Reading, we share why you should consider teaching reading early, the most common early reading theories, and how to practically incorporate early reading into your everyday life. Greenfield Reading Cards is a powerful tool to help you teach your children to read. By using pre-made flashcards, you can start right away. We’ve done the research and the prep work for you.
Are you ready to unlock your child’s potential?
We’d love to hear from you if you have any questions.
