A book on the US Government’s Ready to Learn programme, an investment in high-quality digital media for two- to eight-year-olds (TV programmes, video, interactive games, mobile apps and hands-on activities aimed at engaging children, families, and educators in learning experiences at home, in pre-school, and in out-of-school settings). This book is an exploration of how to develop engaging, playful and developmentally appropriate content based on research. It covers mathematical thinking, early science with The Cat In The Hat, how media can extend language, and supporting practitioners and families to use it successfully.
