Interested in helping your Kindergartener succeed?

 Read more at  Lake County Kids Magazine: Look up "Family Matters with Amber" page.

I published here the table of contents of The Family Guide to Understanding Early Literacy for two reasons-

1- So that you would know what's in the booklet (and how valuable a resource it is-click  here to download)

2- So you would see that it's not as intimidating as you might imagine it to be, with just a page or two per each section, it's laid out for you to be able to use easily

Please check it out, it's simple and informational. (scroll half way down the page and click on 'pdf' next to "A Family Guide to Understanding Early Reading Skills".
