Parents' Choice Foundation: Reviewing Children's Media Since 1978



Reading Rockets

Reading Rockets

Fall 2008 Website
Ages: 4 - 10 yrs.
Designer: Weta Learning Media
Developer: Weta Learning Media
Review:
As is implied by the site’s tagline of "Launching New Readers," Reading Rockets is not designed for children to use, but rather is dedicated to providing adults with information to help children learn to read. Segmented into areas for teachers, professionals (including speech-language pathologists, school psychologists, principals and librarians) and families, this bilingual site features articles and tips such as strategies to help kids who struggle to read, techniques for teaching reading and finding great kids books and author interviews.

Materials are offered in every medium imaginable, from free reading guides, podcasts and videos to on-demand Webcasts and blogs. The site is replete with the latest research and links to other reading resources.

Please Note: This site is for parents with children ranging in age from 4-10.
