We are delighted to invite you to the Pembroke Publishers book launch of Sometimes Reading is Hard by Dr. Robin Bright.

Sometimes Reading is Hard emphasizes the importance of decoding skills, together with the other components that matter in teaching reading: fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. In this webinar, author-educator Robin Bright will explore a new perspective of what balanced literacy looks like, and how to apply that new perspective to teaching reading every day. Teaching reading is everyone's responsibility, and Robin will show how reading can also be prioritized in math, science, social studies, the arts — even physical education.
