Using the Library. Parents and Children Together Series.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading, English, and Communication, Bloomington, IN.; Family Learning Association, Bloomington, IN.
The message of this series of books, "Parents and Children Together," is that parents should get together with their children, talk about stories, and learn together. This book contains several stories that parents and children can read together and talk about in a relaxed way. The book has a companion audiotape. Advice is given in the first part of the book to help parents relate to and feel comfortable reading with their children. In the second half of the book and on one side of the audiotape are ideas and guidelines for the interested parent. Following an introduction and a "getting started" section, the book is divided into these parts: (1) Read-Along Stories ("Balloon Day" [M.A. Crane]; "Tiger Paws and Old Berk" [Jerry Elya]; "My Sister, the Snake, and I" [Yolanda Ferguson Stein]); and (2) Guidelines for Parents (Using the Library; Questions about the Library; Activities for Fun and Learning; and Books for Parents and Children).
