Who has the best reading methods? As we watch children learning to read in other parts of the world, it makes us wonder! In South America they are taking primitive Indians who have never before seen a book and in two to three years they are reading well enough to read the Bible. In New Guinea, primitive people who have been head hunters can learn a new language and learn to read it in a year. In London four-year-olds are learning to read.
