Helping Your Child Become a Reader.
Roser, Nancy L.
This booklet presents specific suggestions, based on research, to help parents encourage their children to become readers. Suggestions for reading to children include: (1) continuing to read to children once they learn to read; (2) reading to children regularly; (3) talking about what is read; (4) sharing reading; (5) starting slowly; and (6) selecting books wisely. Other suggestions to parents for encouraging children to read include making sure children have books of their own, talking with and listening to children, giving children the opportunity to write, adult modeling of reading, using television wisely, using the library, and becoming involved at school.
