The A Beka Book reading curriculum is a Christian-based reading program designed for home-schooled children and later introduced to public and private schools. The A Beka Book curriculum uses an intensive phonics approach that focuses first on learning to read and then on reading to learn.
The curriculum utilizes a series of books to build students' phonetic capacity, followed by vocabulary and grammar. Books in the series include "Adventures in Nature," "Adventures in Greatness," "Read and Think," "Language" and "Sounds and Letters." The A Beka Book curriculum is known for its early reading program, which was developed for nearly 20 years before its publication and has undergone very few changes since its original release.
