StarFall

When my daughter was 2 1/2 years old I taught her how to use a mouse. I then set her loose on starfall.com. It is full of learning activities for kids. My daughter knew all of her letters and sounds long before she was 3, thanks to this site.

Starfall also has Learn-to-Read phonics books that you can purchase to help your child's reading skills develop even further.

READING BOOKS

NEW! Grandma Bubbles Books for young readers

Grandma Bubbles has written and illustrated some cute, fun, colorful, engaging stories to get young kids excited about reading.

I sometimes have a hard time getting my 4 year old motivated to read. It seems like a battle every time I suggest she try to read a word or two. She loves to read Grandma Bubbles Books, however, and will pull them out on her own to read to her younger sister.

Her younger sister (age 3) is also learning how fun reading can be with these books.

Here is a video of them reading together.

Here are some other reading books, some of which you can make on your own:

I've already started my 3 year old on this Hooked on Phonics Kindergarten reading program. I love how it walks the parents and children through step by step.

If your child does not know his or her letters and sounds yet, you can start with the Preschool Hooked on Phonics Program.

I love this product! It's a chart that you can hang on the wall that has a pocket for each letter of the alphabet as well as large clear pockets at the top. It comes with 212 letter and picture cards. There are several games and activities the child can do with these cards and chart including picture/letter match, rhyming, picture word scramble and many more.
