From the National Center for Learning Disabilities comes Get Ready to Read!, a wonderful collection of free resources "designed to support educators, parents, and young children in the development of early literacy skills in the years before kindergarten." Launched in 1999, Get Ready to Read! offers parents and educators numerous resources intended for all young children, such as online early literacy games intended for children to play with adults' help and literacy checklists to help adults "create a literacy-friendly home or classroom." Visitors will also find a "Transitioning to Kindergarten Toolkit," which contains a variety of skill-building activities, screening tools, and helpful information on child development and early learning for math as well as for reading. In addition to English, resources in Spanish, Chinese, Korean, and Arabic are also available. Get Ready to Read! is a valuable literacy resource for parents, educators, and caregivers of young children.
