Children's Literacy Development: Suggestions for Parent Involvement. ERIC Digest.
Macfarlane, Eleanor C.
Noting that parents are their children's first and most important teachers, this digest provides suggestions and recommends resources to help parents become involved in their children's literacy development. The digest discusses visiting the public library; reading aloud and modeling reading; playing with children; listening to children read; having book conversations with children; and helping children write. The digest also presents a sampling of free or inexpensive materials that parents can send for. (RS)
