6 by 6 Alphabet Under Construction Kit-1
What is 6 by 6? This program emphasizes the six skills that parents and caregivers can help children develop before they learn to read, at about the age of 6. The 6 by 6 program was created by the Johnson County Library  based on the PLA program- Every Child Ready to Read and has now been adopted by the State Library of Kansas for promotion statewide.
Made possible by the State Library of Kansas through a grant from the U.S Institute of Museum and Library Services.
