 I highly recommend providing a browser activity that would go directly to
 www.starfall.com, which my daughter used to start reading at age 3-1/2.
 This is the best web site that I've found for learning to read English and
 includes phonetic audio samples keyed to the text on the page.

 Alternatively, if other learn-to-read websites were known, perhaps the
 activity could give the list of sites with hotlinks.

 Another option would be to provide a downloaded version of the website;
 perhaps Starfall could be contacted to obtain their assistance and
 approval.  One would hope that they would cooperate, assuming that (i)
 they receive attribution and (ii) their catalog was included on the
 downloaded version, as it is on the website.

 I would also love to see hyperlinks to similar learn-to-read sites in
 other languages.
