SIR,--The modern methods of teaching children to read appear to
have results inferior to the older ones. Backwardness in reading is so prevalent today.
Can any correspondent recommend a short but adequate book about the aims and
methods of the Look-and-See and Aah-Sa" Kcr school of thought ? Is such a book to be had from a free library ? 1 ask since a convenient way of obtaining enlightenment on an unknown subject is reading the relevant literature, and only an expert can guide parents to the right book.—Yours faithfully, M
