How Can I Prepare My Young Child for Reading? An IRA Micromonograph.
Grinnell, Paula C.
Dealing with the critical years from birth through kindergarten, this micromonograph answers parents' questions about when and how to prepare a child for reading. The pamphlet discusses in depth these suggestions: (1) talking and reading to the child, (2) letting the child read and write, (3) being a model of reading and writing behavior, and (4) encouraging the child's interest in reading and writing. Suggested resources for parents are also included. (HTH)
