Family Storybook Reading.
Taylor, Denny; Strickland, Dorothy S.
Drawn from the experiences of actual families as well as from research findings, this book is intended to show parents how storybook reading promotes language and literacy development and instills in children a love of books and reading. Each section of the book contains parent-child vignettes and photographs of families reading books together. The six sections are entitled (1) "Why Should I Share Storybooks with My Children?" (2) "How Can I Make Storybook Reading an Important Part of Family Life?" (3) "How Will Family Storybook Sharing Help My Child to Read and Write?" (4) "What Can I Do to Help My Child Learn More about Written Language While We Are Sharing Books?" (5) "Where Can I Find Good Books to Share?" and (6) "What Should I Look for When I'm Choosing Books to Share with My Child?" An appendix contains names and addresses of book clubs for children, a list of magazines for children, and a list of resources for parents. (FL)
