    Recognizing letters and knowing their sounds: ages 3-5.
    . 3 being the more mature, advanced learners and 5 being
    when most children are ready.

    • I agree, and my own children covered the range and pushed it… My oldest was reading on his own at age 4, my youngest (who has some autistic traits) was still working on mastering alphabet sounds at age 6. I am so glad to live in the age of technology, when kids can potentially learn at their own pace and never run out of awesome online and offline resources…!
