As a Level 1 Adult ESL teacher, I have found “At the River” to be exactly what my students needed! Its clear, systematic approach guides both literacy and literate students through the shapes and sounds of the English language, culminating in a series of decodable stories that are fresh, interesting, and relevant to students’ lives. Although the book is geared towards emergent readers, even literate English language learners can benefit from explicit instruction in English phonics and sentence structure. I would recommend this book for teachers of adults (or children!) who are learning to decode. — Jaimie L. Foster, Amazon reviewer
I love that this book, though intended for adult emergent readers, can also be used to teach beginning level ESL kids. I have three 1st grade newcomers with zero English proficiency and this book just works wonders for them! — Emily Chavez, Amazon reviewer
