“This book is brimming with practical ideas of all sorts for educators to implement easily in order to teach effective reading strategies at all divisional levels. The claims made are backed with citations from well-known scholars in the field of literacy as well. Bunt is clearly passionate about ensuring that literacy instruction is founded on the key elements of the science of reading and has provided fantastic ideas that can be easily implemented by educational stakeholders.”

Colleen Fleming, admissions associate, Calgary Academy, Alberta

“I love all the practical pieces in Solving the Literacy Puzzle. The chapter on the necessity of explicit vocabulary instruction and the positive effects on other areas such as comprehension is excellent and a much-needed addition to reading instruction. Games and suggested activities like Simon Says With Grammar are fantastic. The explanation of explicit instruction in teaching is great.”
