 This study investigated the effect of extensive reading approach on primary four pupils' attitude and achievement in reading comprehension. The study was motivated by both observed and reported inability of pupils in public schools in Onitsha urban to decode and comprehend. This has been traced to the poor teaching of reading at the foundational level. The study adopted quasi experimental, non equivalent, pre-test post-test design. Involved in the study which lasted for eight weeks were 121 primary four pupils (58 males and 63 females) in four primary schools in Onitsha South Local Government Education Authority. Two instruments: the Reading Comprehension Achievement Test (RCAT) and Reading Attitude Scale (RAS) were validated by experts and used. Six research questions and six hypotheses were answered and tested. Mean, Standard Deviation and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) were used for analysis. Major findings of the study indicated that extensive reading could be employed as method of teaching reading comprehension. The pupils exposed to extensive reading approach performed significantly better than those taught with the conventional approach. Gender had no significant effect on the mean scores of pupils in the extensive reading and conventional groups. The use of extensive reading approach of teaching promoted more positive attitude to reading comprehension. A major conclusion was that extensive reading approach is needed as an integral part of a balanced reading programme in English Language teaching in the primary school. This has implication for teachers in second language classrooms and on teacher education programmes. Teachers are to encourage the provision of varieties of reading materials in their classrooms and encourage children to select and read them by teaching different reading strategies. A major recommendation was that in-service and pre-service teachers should be retrained and trained on the use of extensive reading approach in reading comprehension lessons.
