Children love to be bounced, tickled, and read to. Learn how the sound of your voice, the rhythm of a song, holding a book and reading all get your child ready to read.

Talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing are the key skills and fun ways to help your child get ready to read! Developing early literacy skills makes it easier for children to read once they begin school, and helps foster a lifelong love of reading and learning!
