About the Early Literacy Station:
The ELS is specifically designed for children ages 2 through 10. Over 35% of public libraries in the United States have ELS in their libraries. The ELS includes 50 educational titles that are top rated by Children’s Technology Review. These titles cover seven curricular areas and are mapped to individual state curriculum standards. The ELS, which requires no Internet connection, is easy for kids to use and even easier for librarians to manage. For more about ELS, visit http://www.awe-net.com/els.asp.
