Pre-K Wordplay!

Toddlers and children in pre-kindergarten have fun playing with words! Enjoy our selection of stories and poems, especially for children who know their letter sounds and are beginning to sound out words. Divided into three sections:
Fun with Phonics, Numbers and Counting Rhymes, and Read-Aloud Stories

When they are ready, enjoy Children's Stories, our delightful collection of fairy tales, nursery rhymes and fables. Read aloud, encourage them to join in, and your early readers will become confident readers. They'll love Children's Poems and Yummy Stories

In addition to Pre-K Read-Aloud Stories, enjoy reading chapter Books for Young Readers
