Why Johnny Can’t Surf

Children experience enormous intellectual growth in their early years. The ability to read is mission critical to learning any and every school subject. Children need to read well to do well in language arts, science, social studies, and even math. Learning to read in the earliest grades is most important. Even the vast knowledge that is a click away on the World Wide Web can only be fully accessed by good readers. Teaching kids to read helps to break the vicious cycle of family illiteracy.
