Department of Education, Washington, DC. Office of the Secretary.
Noting that reading well is at the heart of all learning, this guide suggests reading activities that will prevent a decline in children's reading skills over winter vacation, and the guide encourages parents to spend time with their children through these activities. The guide provides links to the following suggested reading lists: the American Library Association Resources for Parents, Teens, and Kids; Caldecott Medal Home Page; Children's Book Council; Newbery Medal Home Page; New York Public Library: On Lion for Kids!; Other Children's Literature Awards; Parents' Choice; Reach Out and Read; Smithsonian Magazine's Notable Books for Children, 2001; and the Children's Literature Web Guide. In addition, this guide provides guidelines for parents for reading well together. Bookmarks are provided as an activity for parents and children to print out and decorate. (PM)
