With more than 25 years of experience in early literacy instruction, the design team is passionate about helping early readers build a strong foundation to support the development of lifelong literacy skills. Our philosophy for reading practice in the preschool years is based on engaging children in authentic reading and writing tasks that will provide the foundation for more sophisticated literacy work as they get older.

For years, we have been preparing reading materials for young children that:
  • are formatted specifically to reinforce early reading behaviors, (see “Why Let’s Read About Me makes the perfect beginning reader?”)
  • helps children build a strong repertoire of high frequency words (words that are most frequently used and repeated in books)
  • are customized for children, making the reading experience highly engaging and personalized
Text designed with these attributes are powerful tools. Using the “Create” page at Let's Read About Me allows you to build a book that addresses all of these reading readiness skills.
