Tips for Parents about Reading: Information and Ideas for Helping Children through Grade Eight Succeed with Reading.
Davis, Deborah; Lewis, Jan Patricia
Noting that all parents want the best school experience for their children, this booklet gives parents some ideas about what to expect at different ages and stages of reading development, suggestions for what parents can do at home, and a list of favorite books parents can find in most libraries for parents and children to read. Sections of the booklet discuss three important things parents should keep in mind, reading as language, reading as learning language, and 13 "understandings" about reading. The booklet then discusses what to expect at various stages of development: infants and toddlers, pre-K through first graders, second and third graders, fourth and fifth graders, and sixth through eighth graders. In addition to what to expect at each of these levels, the booklet lists things parents can do and some favorite children's books. Contains 14 resources for parents and 15 references. Also listed are 23 more books that kids love. (RS)
