Children reading

We once thought a child's education started in kindergarten — but that could be years too late. Hosted by Reba McEntire, Toddling Toward Reading" examines what it takes to give our preschoolers the early literacy skills they need to become successful readers. In Texas, Illinois, Georgia, and Washington, D.C., we'll meet the dedicated parents, teachers, and researchers who are discovering how to give our children a good start on a great future.

This program is the newest episode of Reading Rockets: Launching Young Readers, WETA's award-winning series of innovative half-hour programs about how children learn to read, why so many struggle, and what we can do to help.
