The National Children's Literacy Website is a unique children's literacy initiative and is part of the Soho Center's National Children's Literacy Information Project - a not-for-profit
literacy initiative dedicated to advancing the literacy skills of young children, promoting literacy as an integral factor
in the growth of society, and enhancing literacy in a variety of
home and child care settings. We believe that reading is a fundamental skill needed by all, and we are proud of what we are doing to help children learn to read.


Research on Reading in America

The Annie E. Casey Foundation has published a 62 page Special Report, "Early Warning!
Why Reading by the End of Third Grade Matters."

This Special Report describes (with extensive data and charts) how so many of America's children - especially low-income children - are struggling to learn to read with grade-level proficiency.  The Report provides policy-makers, educators, parents, and concerned citizens with important information and a range of recommendations to consider. 

To view the full Report as well as access an Executive Summary and supplementary material on grade-level reading indicators, please Click Here.
