DAVID MARTIN was a teacher for eighteen years. He began in special education and then went from fourth grade to seventh-grade language arts. But it was his work as a first-grade Reading Recovery teacher that helped him understand the needs of “brand-new readers.”
PS: I worked at Candlewick Press when the Brand New Readers series launched and used them with my son, then 5 1/2. The series works so well to inspire confidence and get kids reading. He was so proud of himself -- and I'm proud to see that the series has continued 10 years later!
“The Brand New Readers series is one of the best out there to motivate new readers. We think they’re so good that we give a set to every primary grade teacher attending our Summer Institutes on the Teaching of Reading.” – Lucy Calkins, Professor of Curriculum and Teaching, Teacher’s College,
