Why Your Child Can Read! A Practical Guide for Parents Who CARE and Want to Help.
Wilkens, Lea-Ruth C.
This practical guide for parents who care and want to help children learn to read and enjoy reading discusses ten ways in which parents and the home environment can influence reading habits and attitudes. These include: (1) encouraging the child while he or she reads, (2) reading aloud to the child and listening while he or she reads aloud, (3) providing children with an adequate library, and (4) providing a quiet time for reading, with no television or other distractions. Ways in which reading is taught in school are also discussed, as well as some of the terminology inherent to reading instruction and language. Bibliographies of books that the family can enjoy and of books on topics that interest children are included. (HTH)
