From Wikipedia: Frank Charles Laubach (September 2, 1884 - June 11, 1970) was an Evangelical Christian missionary and mystic known as "The Apostle to the Illiterates." In 1935, while working at a remote location in the Philippines, he developed the "Each One Teach One" literacy program. It has been used to teach about 60 million people to read in their own language. He was deeply concerned about poverty, injustice and illiteracy, and considered them barriers to peace in the world. ~~~ In 1955, he founded Laubach Literacy, which helped introduce about 150,000 Americans to reading each year and had grown to embrace 34 developing countries. An estimated 2.7 million people worldwide were learning to read through Laubach-affiliated programs. In 2002, this group merged with Literacy Volunteers of America, Inc. to form ProLiteracy Worldwide. ~~~ During the latter years of his life, Laubach traveled all over the world speaking on the topics of literacy and world peace. He was author of a number of devotional writings and works on literacy. ~~~ One of his most widely influential devotional works was a pamphlet entitled "The Game with Minutes." In it, Laubach urged Christians to attempt keeping God in mind for at least one second of every minute of the day. In this way Christians can attempt the attitude of constant prayer spoken of in the Epistle to the Colossians. The pamphlet extolled the virtues of a life lived with unceasing focus on God. Laubach's insight came from his experiments in prayer detailed in a collection of his letters published under the title, Letters by a Modern Mystic. ~~~ Laubach is the only American missionary to be honored on a US postage stamp, a 30¢ Great Americans series stamp in 1984. ~~~ Laubach had a deep interest in the Philippines. He wrote a biography of the Filipino national hero, Jose Rizal: Man and Martyr, published in Manila in 1936. He also translated the hero's valedictory poem, "Mi Ultimo Adios" (My Last Farewell.)...

I bought this book for my college-aged friend who wanted to help an illiterate Arab woman learn to read English. That woman had never been to school, and could not read her own language, nor English. Now, after only 2 months, this Arab woman can read and write the entire English alphabet, plus many simple words. She has learned the phonics skills for sounding out words that she does not know. She is excited, and wants to learn much more. It is a lovely transformation to watch. I highly recommend the Laubach series. It helps illiterate adults to succeed where they have always failed.
It is good size to show student how to make letters. Very helpful. Easy to understand instructions for teacher to use.
I'm a first time tutor, and I have found the Laubach Teacher's Manual invaluable. It clearly describes each skill the student needs and provides tips for effectively teaching to an adult student. I don't know how anyone could teach without it.
