There are very few Forth introductory texts (and serious texts) that do a decent job explaining and demonstrating Forth programming "philosophy" (for lack of a better word), because Forth is not only about pushing and popping stuff on stacks.

The following video does a really good job by walking through a realistic Forth project, where he explains his decisions and his approach to solve the problem and how to refactor Forth code: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvrE2ZGe-rs

He assumes a basic understand of Forth, i.e. how the dictionary works and the two stacks are used. The Forth500 dictionary structure is traditional and should be easy to follow, which helps to internally visualize the concept.
