Reading Readiness Program for 4-Year-Olds and Entering Kindergartners

This program teaches 4-year-olds and entering kindergartners the skills that prepare them for learning to read successfully. Wonderful books and enjoyable classroom activities get children excited about reading, and parents receive guidance for helping their child get off to a strong start with reading.


The source of reading's power is the experience of being absorbed in a good book and imaginatively participating in the world the author has created.
