Description:

Reading Rockets is a program, initiated by public television and funded by the U.S. Department of Education, that addresses how young children learn to read, why they struggle to read, and how adults can help. The Reading Rockets website takes a multimedia approach to getting information out to parents and educators. To read the site in Spanish, click on "En espanol" halfway down the page, on the left side. Also on the left side of the page visitors can find the multitude of media that the site provides. Click on "Podcasts and Videos" to listen to podcasts of interviews with children's authors and reading experts or "Watch and Learn" to see video clips of a variety of teaching methods. Clicking on "Blogs About Reading" will transport visitors to the blogosphere of "Sound it Out", which is written by a teacher/writer/mom/researcher blogger. For those interested in the Reading Rocket's shows broadcast on public television they can just click on "Our Shows on PBS" to view some of the shows online for free, catch them when they are on PBS, or purchase their own DVD copies. Visitors looking for recommendations for little readers should check out the "Find Great Kids' Books and Authors". The books recommended by Reading Rockets are arranged by theme and include "Award-Winning Books", "Holiday Buying Guides", and "All About Choosing and Using Kids' Books".
