The R.E.A.D.Y. Kit is the central product of the R.E.A.D.Y. (Read, Educate and Develop Youth) program. It was developed by the Michigan Department of Education to help parents of young children take advantage of the great opportunity for developing learning skills in the first years of a child's life.  Parents are after all, a child's first and most important teachers.
The R.E.A.D.Y. Infant Kit has been expanded from a collection of literacy tools to a kit of valuable resources addressing the needs of the "whole child."  There are two versions of this kit; a Michigan Kit and a National Kit.  The Michigan kit contains materials and contact information specific to Michigan parents and the National kit contains national contact information.
Other R.E.A.D.Y. Products include age specific literacy packets for toddlers, preschoolers and those entering early elementary years, as well as an award winning video for parents.
