Author Donetta Loya enjoyed her 13 years of teaching preschool and her 18 years of homeschooling. She loved teaching many children to prepare to read and to become early readers.
A child needs help from a parent to read. It takes time, patience and consistency.
This book is filled with lessons that will lead your child to becoming a reader through learning the alphabet by sight and sound, by mastering the vowels sounds, and identifying sight words. There are short stories to help your child to begin his or her journey on their path of reading.

Organizers and Journals:
I am a list maker...I write everything down...My goals, my project deadlines, my plans for my day, groceries, cleaning projects....so I just put it all in a book.
I have written in a journal since I was ten. Now I can create my own...and share them with you!
I am a firm believer in Journaling. It is a great way to relieve stress, a great place to reflect on the good things in life, a place to record important events in your life to share with the future. Leave behind your life story for your kids or grand kids...."What should I write?" do you ask? Write about your childhood, your favorite toys, old friends, places you lived. Write about life's lessons you have learned. Share the love in your heart for your family....just write! It's important!

It also includes a small menu, a place to plan projects or set goals to finish projects already started. Keep track of important dates coming up. Very simple outline
