Easy Reader Kits

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe NCKLS’ Easy Reader Kits are designed to be used with children who are learning to read. The Easy Reader Kits contain easy readers focused on a theme along with a stuffed animal. Because many children who are learning to read need a non-judgmental reading experience in order to help them develop confidence in their reading abilities, the kits contain a stuffed animal to provide children with a safe and comforting audience.

There are eight Easy Reader Kits available for check out.
