The book mentions several times that it can easily be done or at least speaking them but does not go into it as part of the system. The intial goal is to build up to five sets of five words three times a day so seventy-five lessons. Each "lesson" is super quick but finding the right moments isn't always easy. So a second language would double that unless the system is modified and soon enough reading phrases and sentences will come in and make things busier still.
Does anyone have a plan or system for this yet? My son is 4 years old. Is it a right time to read this book?

Scientifically created by a brain researcher. The original was published way back in the 60's or maybe 50's. I used it to teach both my kids to read, starting at 18 months. That's right, months.
Both learned to read by 3, and my son had read all the early grade school books by 4. We couldn't find enough with big print. By 5 he was through most of the middle school books. I measured his reading speed better than words per minute for most books. He doesn't remember ever not knowing how to read, and reads WORDS by sight, rather than speaking them in his head the way I do subvocalizing. He remembers what he reads far better than others.
Many folks are resistant to teaching little ones "too early. The author answers this objection well. I CAN tell you that a kid that knows more than many of his teachers in grade school can be a challenge It would be malpractice for parents to not read this one and at least see how it works BTW, it says it was 1st published in We have it in our family, my Mother discovered it, and said: "I wish I'd known about this when raising my family!
You all would have had the advantage of speed reading from the earliest times I just didn't know it was possible! View all 5 comments. Jul 08, Cheryl rated it really liked it Shelves: early-childhood-development , read-in Every parent should read all of Doman's books. Feb 11, Christina rated it liked it. Interesting idea. The basic premise is that reading is a natural brain function, just like learning to understand spoken language.
According to the authors, kids don't learn to read earlier on their own because generally print is too small for their underdeveloped vision. Apparently the method described in the book using very large, bold flashcards has worked for thousands of families, and I plan to start trying it with Isobel within the next few months.
That said, the writing was poor, and the Interesting idea. That said, the writing was poor, and the material dated. It was first written in and there are some things that should be updated. For example, the author spends way too much time harping on the evils of playpens, when I don't think playpens are really popular anymore at all except as a sleep space. Also, I get annoyed with parenting manuals that are loaded with impassioned calls to action.
Obviously I'm already willing to believe that idea if I'm going to the trouble of reading this poorly-written book. I read this book for the idea and the method, though, not for the writing. So it still gets 3 stars. View 1 comment. Sure, it will make your baby much more intelligent, but just as important, you will have such sweet memories of those special times with your child cuddled on your lap, reading aloud to you.
Nov 11, Valerie rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-that-changed-my-life. Reading this book changed my perception of babies and their potential. They are capable of so much, and I appreciated being able to feel like I was really teaching them rather than just waiting for them to grow out of the cute "blob" stage. I've applied these ideas of teaching babies from all the books the Domans have written, and had my children reading at age 3, learning to speak by reading my autistic son , recognizing a "giant walkingstick" in a natural history museum even though he was so Reading this book changed my perception of babies and their potential.
I've applied these ideas of teaching babies from all the books the Domans have written, and had my children reading at age 3, learning to speak by reading my autistic son , recognizing a "giant walkingstick" in a natural history museum even though he was so young he didn't have a very large vocabulary --this flashcard system works.
Note that the Domans advise lots of repetitions of the flashcards. I haven't been as consistent as they suggest, I've used white cardstock instead of posterboard, and I have still had the fabulous results they explain as possible.
Remember that every little bit you do helps teach your child. I also liked to do the flashcards right before a nap or bed--it seemed to me that their minds worked on it while they were asleep because they seemed to catch on even faster that way. I'm definitely intrigued by the idea, and I desperately want to try it I agree with the author that young children soak up knowledge with an unfathomable rapidity, so I think my son would love it.
I'm just nervous because there is no phonics involved whatsoever My concern is that he will learn to read and yet be missing some of the most basic tools he needs to continue learning on I'm definitely intrigued by the idea, and I desperately want to try it My concern is that he will learn to read and yet be missing some of the most basic tools he needs to continue learning on his own.
He can't come to me for the rest of his life and ask, "What word is this? I did read the updated edition , but the book still seemed dated and definitely had a 's flavor to it.
I'm still undecided as to what I will do. It really was an easy and enjoyable read, and I would love to have something structured to do with my son this next year. I would welcome any thoughts anyone has on this or other reading methods. View 2 comments. It's been lying around, so yesterday I thought I'd give it a read.
I like the idea behind the title. Upon reading the book, I found that Doman's methodology presents a couple ideas that I might try with my kids. But overall, I found this book disappointing and frustrating from a linguistics standpoint. For the majority of the text, Doman makes claims supported almost entirely through the aid of case-study and testimonial-style examples complemented with homespun wisdom. Furthermore, Doman's views on language acquisition and language in general are antiquated or just outright incorrect in light of current linguistic study.
