The Very Ready Reader Program

This program is a comprehensive early literacy curriculum used by our library. These are some of the principles upon which the curriculum is based:

  1. Children between the ages of three and five need to interact with their peers to learn social skills.
  2. Story characters provide “windows” to view adaptive problem solving and interaction skills.
  3. True reading comprehension is based solidly upon human relationship understanding rather than just upon letter sound decoding.
  4. Enjoyable interaction in a literacy-rich environment plants a love of all-things reading in children.
