6 by 6

In efforts to help children aged birth to six years of age prepare to read, the State Library of Kansas adapted the local 6 by 6: Ready to Read program created by Johnson County Library to a statewide early childhood literacy program now available to every public library in Kansas. 6 by 6 is a parent-friendly early literacy program modeled after the national Every Child Ready to Read @ your library program. This program emphasizes the six skills that parents and caregivers can help children develop, before they learn to read, at about the age six.
