Reading Readiness Sites
As a reading facilitator I love websites that will help parents reach out to their kids, and provide the links or tools that are necessary to progress to the next step in reading. Having run an ALA Ready to Read program when I worked in the public library, I loved the tools I could offer parents who needed advice along the way. Here are some great websites to help you and your young ones move along the wonderful road towards literacy. When your student learns to read celebrate in style, because it is an amazing and proud moment for your little one! Thank God for books and the joy of reading!
