Encouraging Young Writers. A Guide for Parents.
Reading Is Fundamental, Inc., Washington, DC.
Stressing that reading aloud to children is the single most important way to help children get ready to read and write, this brochure offers ideas for encouraging preschoolers to experiment with writing, for motivating school-age children to write more, and for involving the whole family in writing at home. The brochure also suggests ways to provide the supplies and the space needed for writing. (KEH)
