Originally published in 1961, Let's Read is a simple and systematic way to teach basic reading. Developed by noted linguist Leonard Bloomfield, the bo ok is based on the alphabetic spelling patterns of English. Bloomfield offe red an antidote to the idea that English is a difficult language to learn t o read by teaching the learner to decode the phonemic sound-letter correlat ions of the language in a sequential, logical progression of lessons based on its spelling patterns. The learner is first introduced to the most consi stent (alphabetic) vocabulary and then to increasingly less alphabetic and less frequent spelling patterns within a vocabulary of about 5,000 words. T he second edition of Let's Read brings Bloomfield's innovative program into the twenty-first century without changing the sequence of exercises but wi th revised text and an attractive new design and layout. Authors Cynthia A. Barnhart and Robert K. Barnhart, who have long been invo lved with Let's Read, have refined the original edition with new vocabulary and content based on feedback from longtime users. The new edition lighten s the first learning load by presenting lengthy patterns in two lessons rat her than one, adding more connected reading and new vocabulary, and introdu cing some sight words earlier in the sequence. The authors have also added a list of multisyllable words at the end of part 1 that fall within the pat terns of the first lessons, and they have added some longer stories later i n the program. The notes introducing each part of Let's Read have also been revised to be more informative, and new illustrations have been added. Let's Read not on.
