The Kid Zone! is a place where you can participate as your child builds literacy skills in a fun and interactive way. You can:
Note which sounds, letters, and words seem hard for your child and what he or she sounds like when reading aloud.
Watch for the skills or tasks that appear difficult for your child. See if they improve with practice.
Pause and give your child a chance to correct a mistake. Then try giving him or her a hint or prompt to figure it out.
Talk with your child about the book or game experience. Offer praise when successful and reassure him or her when difficulties arise.

Alana, Jacob, and Reuben from KidsRead2Kids introduce the Kid Zone!
Public libraries are a great resource for your child’s literacy learning. They often provide free literacy events, in addition to children’s audio and print books. Library staff can help find resources to support your child’s learning at home.
Check your local library to see what it offers!
If you cannot read traditional print books due to a visual impairment, physical disability or dyslexia, Bookshare may be for you!
Bookshare® is FREE for qualified U.S. students of any age.
