You, Your Child and Reading. A Reading Program for the Parent.
Treacy, Thomas D.
The premise of this book is that parents should help their child learn to read at home in order to individualize reading skill instruction better than may be possible at school alone. A reading readiness checklist is offered as a guide to determining if one's child is linguistically, behaviorally, and perceptually ready to begin to learn to read. A guide to how to teach the sound-symbol relationships of phonics composes the major portion of the book. Reading comprehension is discussed and a reading skill checklist is suggested as a check on reading progress. (MKM)
