Kits for Kids

Kits for Kids were developed to help parents, teachers, and childcare providers develop early literacy skills, ensuring children are READY TO READ once they begin school.

Educators recommend that children who enter kindergarten have the following pre-reading skills:

  • Knowing words and their meanings
  • Enjoying books
  • Noticing printed words
  • Describing things and events
  • Hearing the smaller sounds in words
  • Knowing the names and sounds of letters

Each child-sized backpack comes complete with a book, a puppet, plush   toy, a CD or other related props, and an activity card with ideas for bringing the story to life and building literacy skills.

Kits for Kids may be checked out for 3 weeks.
