What happens in our brains when we read? It turns out, a lot. Reading is a complex process that involves multiple parts of the brain working together. Not everyone learns to read at the same pace, but all students can learn to read with instruction that is grounded in the science of reading.

This graphic booklet, designed for student and adult use, explains how we learn to read. It invites students to be partners in their learning--explaining how certain instructional methods can help them learn to read, and why becoming a strong reader is worth the work!

Written and illustrated by Daryl Seitchik, this graphic booklet was created in partnership with the Center for Cartoon Studies,  Meredith Liben, and David Liben
