The Tessy and Tab Reading Club combines a children's magazine subscription with tools for parents to help their preschooler get ready to read. This reading program builds early reading skills in children ages 2-6 and was developed to support the Six Skills for Early Literacy endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education.

A new magazine arrives every two weeks containing real-life Program adventures with Tessy the duck and Tab the kangaroo. Tessy and Tab have experiences that preschoolers recognize and relate to (i.e. Potty Training, New Friends, Camping Trip, Bedtime, etc). The illustrated story- driven format teaches page-turning rhythm, and each issue builds cognitive skills (matching, recognition, repetition) with a featured letter, number, and finding game. Learning games and crafts at www.tessyandtab.com<http://www.tessyandtab.com> complement and enhance the child's reading experience.

A year long, 24 issue subscription costs $48 (and for libraries, you can also order through EBSCO). Learn more by visiting www.tessyandtab.com<http://www.tessyandtab.com>
