This paper contains a description and evaluation of a project designed to assist teachers, aides, and parents in the preparation of preelementary children for structured elementary school reading programs. Activities involving 22 teachers and aides and 71 parents from seven schools or child care sites are described. A section on achievement data notes that little difference was found between experimental and control group subjects, while the section on attainment of objectives indicates that there was high parental involvement in learning activities with their children as a result of training workshops.
