A Message for Parents

Learning to read is a big step for any child, and it's even more fun when you do it together. With you by their sides, children can learn to read step by step, practicing important skills and finding the magic of stories.

PBS KIDS Raising Readers has created this activity book to partner with you, your child, and your child's doctor to make reading a fun and simple part of everyday life. Whether you're singing, telling stories, searching for letters, or discovering new words together, we hope your family enjoys this book. PBS KIDS Raising Readers is committed to raising healthy readers.

Visit for more games, tips, and activities. And talk to your child's doctor about ways to help your family be healthy and happy.
