About the Author

Cynthia A. Barnhart is a dictionary maker with a special interest in new words and usages. She has been involved with Let's Read since its initial publication and was the first Barnhart family member to teach a child to read working from the manuscript of Let's Read.

Robert K. Barnhart was a dictionary maker who created the original reading passages for Let's Read. In addition to the 1976 edition of the World Book Dictionary, his most important dictionaries were the Barnhart Dictionary of Etymology and the First, Second, and Third Barnhart Dictionary of New English.


Let's Read may well be the most important book on beginning reading in our time; the important point is that here is a new methodology soundly based on psychology and linguistics. . . . The lessons are ingeniously constructed to induce smooth, rapid progress. Let's Read is not just another reading text; it is a new system."--Russell Cosper "Journal of Reading Development "
The system is totally orderly, totally logical, and virtually foolproof. It is strictly a reading system. Reading is means, process, and end.--Charles C. Walcutt "Council for Basic Education (CBE) Bulletin "
Let's Read' is a valuable resource to any literacy teacher, very highly recommended."--The Midwest Book Review
