Six Skills by Six Years

Kansas Libraries

What is 6 by 6? This program emphasizes the six skills that parents and caregivers can help children develop before they learn to read, at about the age of 6.

The 6 by 6 program was created by the Johnson County Library and adopted by the State Library of Kansas to promote statewide.

Anna Foote is the Early Literacy/Lifelong Learning Coordinator for the State Library of  Kansas and can be contacted with questions about the 6 by 6 program:
