Reading Tips for Parents of Preschoolers

Reading Rockets’ Tips for Parents of Preschoolers

The research is clear: children who are read to, and who read for pleasure, are significantly more successful in school than children who do not. Give your children a head start on success—teach them that reading is FUN!

Between the Lions

Between the Lions, winner of The Parents' Choice Award as the best TV show for kids 4-to-7, is the first series to offer educationally sound reading instruction that combines phonics and whole language.

Airing weekdays on PBS, Between the Lions is set in a magical library run by a family of big "cats"—lions Theo, Cleo, Lionel, and Leona—who run a library where characters pop off the pages of books, vowels sing, and words take on a life of their own. NEA has endorsed the series, which uses a comprehensive literacy curriculum geared to beginning readers.

Between the Lions has graciously shared some of their reading materials. Here is a selection of reading tips for parents and teachers, as well as book lists you can take to the library or the book store.
