Pupils build confidence and come to see themselves as readers and authors.

This characteristic likewise is not reflected in the research literature but, again, is very evident when one observes the programs in operation. Because the procedures used virtually guarantee success, students see themselves as readers and grow in confidence. They often point with pride to the books they have already read. They enjoy reading to each other, to parents, to classroom volunteers, and to visitors to their classrooms. The prevention of reading failure has made a very significant difference in the lives of these children!
