Early Literacy is what your child knows about reading and writing BEFORE they can actually read or write.

YOU Are Your Child's First Teacher!

Roughly 35% of children in the United States enter school without the basic skills that are needed to learn to read.  You can help your child get ready to learn to read by having fun with these activities based on the Every Child Ready to Read® project of the American Library Association.
