Helping Your Child to Read.
Foust, Betty Jean
This booklet provides suggestions for parents in helping their children to learn how to read. The first section provides 34 suggestions and activities for parents to use with preschool children, such as reciting nursery rhymes, reading aloud, respecting the child's mood, and playing listening games. The second section offers 25 suggestions and activities for the parent to use after his child begins school. These include field trips, good sleeping habits, praise of the child, and patience with the child. The third section provides 18 suggestions and activities for independent reading--usually reached at the third or fourth grade levels. These include orally reading to the child, giving him a choice of places from which he may borrow books, and encouraging the use of reference materials. A list of addresses from which free reading materials for children are available is also provided. (DI)
