Review: How to Read a Book by Adler and Van Doren


So now your children know how to read. Congratulations! That’s a major step, but does it mean that their reading instruction finished? Not at all, we’ve found.

I have also published my notes about the four levels of reading, based on this book.  Highly recommended.
