The Puzzling Code

Pathways to Early Literacy

Written by Marie M. Clay

Pathways to Early Literacy series: Discoveries in Writing and Reading

This is a series of three books written for parents, caregivers, early childhood teachers, and teachers of children in their first year at school. No set order is intended. Each book offers unique discussions and suggestions, and each is complete in itself.


The Puzzling Code discusses how puzzling the written code is for young learners beginning formal reading instruction and offers instructional recommendations for supporting the child’s complex learning.
