"This book is filled with reading pyramids you can use to teach accuracy and fluency. Reading pyramids begin with one word and slowly build into phrases and sentences of increasing complexity. The technique is designed to increase eye span, strengthen eye tracking, and develop fluency." (Learning Magazine, Back-to-School 2007)
