Helping the Beginning School Child with Reading. Number 5.
National Reading Center Foundation, Washington, DC.
The purpose of this brochure is to assist parents of young children to recognize opportunities in everyday life to help their young children to become good readers and to suggest ways in which parents can take advantage of these opportunities. It is recommended that, first of all, parents should develop a reading habit in themselves and fill the home with a sense of reading excitement and interest. Also, parents should look for situations which could lead to reading interest, listen to the children, correct the children's pronunciation, speak clearly to them, and show enthusiasm in the children's studying. The physical and emotional fitness of the children are emphasized. Recommendations are made of simple ways to make the children independent in reading, with a stress on the parents' setting an example themselves. Finally, the brochure gives suggestions on the selection of children's books. This brochure is one of a series commissioned by the National Reading Center to help inform all citizens about reading issues and to promote national functional literacy. (AW)
