From kindergarten through the end of third grade, students learn to read. From fourth grade on, kids need to be able to read in order to learn.
Education is the cornerstone of individual and community success, and early age literacy is vital to education. We understand the importance of investing in early learning tools that will set students and families up for a lifetime of success. Studies show students reading at grade level are four times more likely to graduate from high school.
