Reading Begins at Home: Preparing Children for Reading Before They Go to School.
Butler, Dorothy; Clay, Marie
Directed to parents of preschool children, this booklet suggests that well-prepared children seldom fail to learn to read and recommends that parents prepare their children for reading by providing one-to-one learning situations. The book is divided into sections that describe learning experiences at home when parents read themselves and offer their children help with letter recognition and consistent encouragement; reading experiences provided by libraries, with more direct instruction in sight reading games; and typical questions parents ask about the reading process. An annotated booklist for parents and children makes up the final section. (AEA)
