Description

New York: Eight-year-old Zenda Smith of P.S. 149 here enjoys working with the Reading Machine. According to Theodore Waller, president of Grolier, Inc., 'If schools had the money to hire enough teachers... to work with each non-reader or poor-reading child on a one-to-one basis, most children would learn to read. That, in effect, is what this program provides--because the child works with the Blue Machine all by himself. The recorded voice quietly and pleasantly talking to him alone becomes his good friend, as well as a teacher.' In addition, it successfully removes the failure syndrome, as children learn they are capable of learning and, therefore, increases their desire to learn.
