About 20 to 30 percent of school-age children have difficulties learning to read? At this young age, this can be embarrassing for them, and can result in low motivation and self-esteem. Children who are most at risk for reading difficulties are those who were not read to at home.

"The most important thing that parents can do is talk and read to their children. During the toddler and preschool years, it is critical to provide children with different language and reading experiences."

(G. Reid Lyon, PhD, Chief of the Child Development and Behavior Branch within the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development)

While knowing how to read is essential for day-to-day survival, developing a passion to read opens new worlds for children. By reading, children can acquire all the knowledge, skills and values essential for their success in school and in life.
