Multiple award-winning book on reading and spelling education that will transform how you think about English!Do you know a student who is good at math or science but struggles with reading or spelling?Has a student ever asked you a question about English spelling to which you replied, “That’s an exception”?Have you ever abandoned a word while writing because spell check didn’t recognize it?Discover this revolutionary method that Dr. Temple Grandin called “really helpful for teaching reading to children who are mathematical pattern thinkers…”Predominant reading methods require students to break the complex code of English without help. This has resulted in low literacy rates and explains why many highly educated professionals cannot spell. By revealing the logical patterns underlying 98% of English words, Uncovering the Logic of English eliminates the need to guess and provides a logical solution to English spelling.Simple answers are given for questions such as: Why is there a silent final E in have? Why don’t we drop the E in noticeable? Why is discussion spelled with -sion rather than -tion? As the rules unfold it becomes apparent how this knowledge is vital to reversing the educational crisis that is plaguing America. This slim volume is easy to read and accessible to parents and classroom teachers. A thorough appendix summarizes the most important concepts for quick reference.Awards:ForeWord Reviews – Finalist 2012Midwest Book Awards – Winner 2012Independent Publisher Book Awards – Silver Medalist 2011Indie Excellence Awards – Gold Medalist 2011Benjamin Franklin Awards – Finalist 2012

A gem of a book that brings light to the way in which words are read and spelled. 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, Distinguished Professor of Education Policy, Southern Methodist UniversityThe thrust of this book might be better described if the title was changed to The Heartbreak of English: a Logical Means of Recovery. –Jack Blackburn, Retired 3M EngineerUncovering 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 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.

  • This book is absolutely fascinating. I’m a homeschool mom who follows the Charlotte Mason philosophy; when it was time to teach my oldest to read I realized how little I knew about phonics. After doing some research I found this book and it has been an amazing resource. The chapters are short and easy to understand. I typically read 1-2 chapters per day with time to process in between. I have worked through this book 2-3 times and retain a little more each time. An absolute necessity when teaching your children to read/spell, especially if you don’t want to follow a particular curriculum. Between this book and The ABC’s and All Their Tricks (review cards) my son is getting an excellent understanding of decoding words just through the conversations we have while he reads.
  • Educators have been missing the boat! All administrators, curriculum developers, and teachers, need to read / study this book. Phonics has been getting a bad name, perpetrated because most educators do not have the full understanding of what the scope of the teaching is about. Despite having a good command of the English language, my mind was blown away after I read this book! We are cheating our children, putting “bandaids” on their (and too often their teachers, because they themselves were not taught) lack of knowledge. There are schools that encourage students to put a box around the shape of the word. Why?? This does nothing to help a child learn how to read… not when there are blocks / shapes that are the same, or almost the same, for perhaps 10 words! With well over a million English words, is a child expected to know that many words by looking at them by shape or guessing?? They need the building blocks and rules Denise Eide talks about, that can be used to guide a child to learn how to tie it all together. Most excellent book!!I am very passionate about education. This is a book that everyone should read! Reading is not a guessing game. It’s built on a strong foundation!
  • Homeschooling my own son, who straggles with spelling/writing when encounter unfamiliar words, made me look for different sources. But there was nothing like the Uncovering the Logic of English, so comprehensive in explaining the rules and how to teach decoding words.The book is a game changer!
  • I hated their curriculum, which is probably not fair because I typically don’t like any curriculum. But this book is a gem! It goes perfectly with our practice of copywork and dictation. I’m not sure how I feel about the generalizing or labeling of this program being a good match for mathy kids, but… it’s true for us. My son sees patterns in math so easily, and yet it doesn’t stick for reading and spelling. When I go over a rule here, in conjunction with our copywork, it’s like a light bulb goes off. (small amounts at a time). These rules are precise, simple, clean, accurate, and thorough. It’s all covered. There are very few, true exceptions, and they are listed. which is nice because I feel like I have a good, big picture sense of ‘how many’ outliers there are. Then you can prioritize or choose to not worry about them.
  • My son’s writing teacher at the Community Learning Center in Clearwater, FL introduced me to this book. I have a B.A. in English and I learned so much from reading this! I would read a page and my kids and husband would hear me in the next room say, “Oh my gosh!” I just kept finding out more and more truth about the English language and spelling and got rid of so much false information. My son struggled with spelling because he is very logical and not particularly a visual learner. He is spelling almost effortlessly now and this is such a huge relief – he had hated writing because he couldn’t think with the spelling before. Now he understands and is an easy speller! Thanks so much to the Community Learning Center and to the author, Denise Eide. This book improved the quality of our son’s life.
  • I have several English major friends who didn’t know some of the simplest rules from this book. When I shared a couple rules with my best girlfriend (a Journalism and English major) she immediately said she needed to read the book herself to utilize it with her beginning reader.I am very excited about the information in this book and am currently looking at the Foundations curriculum to use with my children (who are in public school learning to read).While this book is a very easy and quick read, I do feel like this book could be even more in-depth as well as include some history. It would also be nice if it were to point a reader in the direction of even more information.This is not a book about grammar or sentence structure.
  • Denise Eide’s book “Uncovering the Logic of English: A Common-Sense Approach to Reading, Spelling, and Literacy” was rated three stars because it was well written, flowed smoothly, and was well paced. The book was easy to read. I found this book extremely informative since I studied English Literature in college. This book would no doubt confuse a younger learner learning English for the first time. The book did not cover enough key concepts/details for one to learn anything from it. College students would find it most useful. The student had sufficient knowledge to understand the concept behind the book. These are my personal opinions.
  • Pros: Absolutely essential for empowering teachers to truly understand that 98% of English words are decodable, therefore making it possible for them to teach 95% of students to read. Teaches us how to instruct students in encoding, how to spell, so those without a visual memory can build confidence in their writing. Aligns well with Orton Gillingham programs which can be independently applied with your students.Con: Rules aren’t arranged in a way that should be taught to students, such as the soft and hard g and c rule is written about before the floss rule.Every teaching credential/licensing program should require this as reading. My heart breaks thinking of the students I’ve taught for the past 6 years while I didn’t know these rules.
  • We are not native English speakers, so we needed desperately some support to help our children understand English language after we have finished understanding it… :). This book proved to be very useful for us as well and using parallel with the videos and the app makes a better understanding (this starting to look like a paid advertisement, but it’s not…still, but I hope it will be… 🙂 ) The only problem is that it is US English and we’ve been warned in school to try to avoid US pronunciation to learn, but still haven’t found a better way and spending almost their whole day in school will be a greater influence on their English we just may get deepened by the explanation from this book.
  • Here ‘s a viewpoint from a non native speaker. Even though I knew the meaning and the spelling of many words (due to French), I was wondering how to pronounce the new words I met. Now it is more obvious to know which sounds I must say.It is funny, since I moved to the UK I’ve met nobody who knew these rules (even very educated people).For the French who wanna improve their English, that book can help you for speaking or writing. I’m not sure for listening. First, trust your intuitions. French and English share many words and some rules mentioned in that book are common rules in roman languages. I still recommend that book
  • Excellent quality good read
  • As someone who is dyslexia and has been searching for someone who could explain the mysteries of the English language so that it all makes sense I was delighted to find this book. At 46years of age I wish it had been around along time ago. However I am overjoyed that it’s here now and it will be of great assistance to me and my dyslexia son. I have said for many years that phonics it not taught properly and had a conversation with a teacher earlier the year who mispronounced the s and t speech sounds and gleefully informed me that English is a visually language only 30% phonic so it’s not worth learning phonics! I am so overjoyed to find someone who truly understands the logic of it all and will enable me to help myself and my son. I Thank you with my whole heart.
  • it is a long read and you have to read it a few time and extract the pages / information you need.effort required but once you understand you understand.of off the strength of this book and video on youtube we have purchased the logic of english program – time will tell.
