With the exception of five entries, it is limited to programs and studies in the United States. Materials include conceptual discussions, bibliographies, and studies that use experimental, ethnographic, and program evaluative designs. The bibliography is divided into seven parts. Parent-Child Relationships and Reading includes a small group of studies from early child development and early childhood education on issues such as the nature of parent-child interactions, problem solving, impact of maternal teaching strategies, and parenting and child development. Parent-Child Reading/Emergent Literacy presents several studies about parents' literacy, storybook reading, curricular approaches to emergent literacy, and parent-child interaction around reading. Parent and Family Beliefs and Socialization focuses on the role of parents' beliefs about school performance and literacy and implications for literacy socialization. Family and Intergenerational Literacy presents effective approaches. Parent Involvement/Family-School Connections focuses on effects of parent involvement in relation to general school performance and reading. Family and Parent Education describes programs designed to support the social development of families. Culture/Context, presents a collection of cross-cultural studies.
