Resources for Early Childhood Literacy
Early Literacy is what children know about reading and writing before they actually read or write.
Six pre-reading skills get children ready to learn how to read. Knowing the ABC’s is only one of the six skills. Research shows these early literacy skills are best developed through talking, singing, reading, writing and playing. Beginning at birth, what you do every day helps prepare your child to become a successful reader. Explore the linked pages and posts to discover fun, easy ways to grow your future reader.

I am a voracious reader. You have to read to survive. People who read for pleasure are wasting their time. Reading isn't fun; it's indispensable. Woody Allen
