I've also added two great alphabet songs by Kermit the Frog (Jim Henson), with lyrics! (This page was moved out of the reading folder, where it was never linked, so it's a little like new.)

New from Alex Polikowsky, reminder to parents, fourth or fifth item dowwn:

Two new accounts added to a page called "Learning to read on the list"
(The new stuff's at the bottom!)
