We found something amazing for kids who are going into kindergarten -- a free reading program!

It's called Waterford Upstart, and all it takes is 15 minutes of online learning five days a week. The program also helps parents learn to help their kids offline as well. And, parents get a coach to help them along too!

Kim Fischer, Waterford.org Director of Public Relations, says there's also an app that gives parent fun tips and tools and social and emotional practices as well.

Any parent of a child four years and younger is welcome to apply -- it only takes eight minutes to get registered.
