Reading is a constellation of complex processes, which can be tough to manage for a beginning reader. G. Reid Lyon identifies the processes involved in reading, and describes how each is crucial for reading success. Two commonly confused terms, phonics and phonemic awareness, are defined and exemplified. Lyon also emphasizes the emotion involved in success and failure for beginning readers.
