Reading Right from the Start: What Parents Can Do in the First Five Years.
Bickart, Toni S.; Dodge, Diane Trister
Intended to provide concrete ways for parents to help children become readers and writers, this easy-to-read, illustrated booklet uses the everyday routines that parents follow with their children--bathing and dressing, eating, shopping, doing household chores--to demonstrate how to build vocabulary, learn about conversations, and discover meaning from the written word. Rather than using workbooks and special games, the booklet explains the value of everyday talking, singing, and reading to children. Guidance is provided by age group: baby, toddler, preschool, and kindergarten. The booklet also includes lists of books to read for each age group. (EV)
