Family Literacy: A Bibliography.
Rudd, Amanda S., Comp.
Based on the concept that literacy is a family affair, this book presents an annotated list of materials published in the 1980s appropriate for use by organizations and individuals involved in literacy training and for learners seeking materials for their personal needs and enrichment. Each of the over 750 entries includes a bibliographic description and an annotation with suggested reading level followed by ISBN number and price. The book is divided into four segments: "Breaking the Cycle," presenting titles for adults involving basic skills, the workplace, test preparation, and consumer information; "Home Affairs," high-interest/low-vocabulary titles that address current social issues and concerns important to families; "Reading for Pleasure," books for children and adults selected to inspire a desire for books and reading; and "English as a Second Language," titles that address literacy skills, cultural assimilation, test preparation, and acclimation to the United States job market.
