Childhood literacy is possibly the most important issue facing the American education system today. Without the fundamental skills of basic literacy and comprehension a child’s chances of success, later in life, are drastically reduced. Short Tales Press strives to create content that provides that basic foundation through our leveled readers and chapter books. Short Tales Press leveled readers are a great asset to any program that fosters childhood literacy and seeks to support the success of our youth in the increasingly competitive global marketplace.
It is now more important than ever to give our children a strong foundation of literacy to ensure our continued success as a society on global scale. Declining education rates and frequent adult illiteracy shake the very foundation of our country. We as parents and educators, need to take action both at home and in our schools. Short Tales Press believes we have the ability to overcome childhood illiteracy and bring back the fundamental strength of the American education system.
Teach your children to read by setting an example. A child is never to young to hear a story. Short Tales Press leveled readers can help you connect and strengthen your child’s overall literacy behavior, while bringing you closer together through the act of spending quality time with your children discussing and experiencing a shared story.
In an educational setting, Short Tales Press leveled readers offer a fantastic compliment to established reading programs like Reading Recovery®, Guided Reading and RTI. Our books can be used in conjunction with your current curriculum or beginning a new standard for your early education reading programs. Either way Short Tales Press educational children’s books will increase your ability to help a child build a strong fundamental foundation of literacy to help them succeed in all their future educational endeavors.
