I used An Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading and I liked it. The lessons were fairly short, although, as far as I remember, anything "extra" that you want to do, you have to sort of make on your own. Therere's not a workbook for the kids or anything, althought there might be some ideas at the end of the lessons. I can't really remember!
One thing I did with it was take the little paragraphs from the lessons and type several of them out on my computer. I then put them into a folder and called it Reilly's Reading Folder. She liked having something that was "hers", rather than just trying to read out of the big book.
I've not used anything in awhile as far as a "lesson book", since she's reading so well, so we didn't actually finish the book. I just have her pick any book and read to me!

Hope that helps somewhat!
