The couple’s first title isn’t a memoir or a work of fiction. Rather, it’s a dictionary — coil-bound with a black, red and white cover — specifically designed for people who are learning how to read.
“We call it the ‘U-Can’ because with it, you can to teach yourself to read."
But what distinguishes the Pages’ dictionary even more is how it’s laid out. Like in any dictionary, its entries are organized by letter. In the U-Can, however, they are divided down even further. Under each letter, the one and two-letter words come first, allowing readers to pick up foundational words and syllables before moving on to more challenging fare.
Since it’s designed by someone who taught themselves to read, perhaps this approach would work?
