Neuropsychologist Willingham describes the incredibly complex and nearly instantaneous series of events that occur from the moment a child sees a single letter to the time they finish reading. The book addresses reading comprehension (from reading for understanding at early levels to inferring deeper meaning from texts and novels in high school), the connection between reading and writing, and the important role of motivation. Willingham also explores the effects of technology on learning to read and reading.
