Guy Lodge is a devoted father, who has been successfully homeschooling his daughters using a FREE online public school platform for the past seven years. Through intense research, he educated himself about the natural window of opportunity for children learning to read written words simultaneously while they are learning to speak those words, then poured all he learned into his daughters teaching them each to read by the age of three. Then by age five on their first day of kindergarten, they were reading on a fourth grade reading level.
During that process he read hundreds of picture books to his children, and his children read hundreds of picture books back to him helping him to become well versed in story arcs, character development, story pace, as well as artwork placement and direction. Then prompted by an experience he had long ago of finding out what a valedictorian was too late to even try for that goal, he wrote and self-published, Valedictorian. Hoping to Write a few things into existence for his daughters, while ensuring that readers world wide will know from the very beginning of their educational journey what a valedictorian is; and be inspired to strive for academic excellence.
