This brochure presents guidelines to help parents and educators work together in developing young readers. The brochure states that supporting a child is best accomplished when parents and teachers share common methods and basic understandings about the reading process. It describes ways parents can help their children as readers, outlining three ways to read aloud and what parents should do while reading books to their children. It also answers the following questions: How can I help my child learn to read?; and What should I do when my child gets stuck? The brochure provides lists of recommended books for emergent readers, early readers, and fluent readers. It also lists "great read-alouds" for parents to read to infants, toddlers, and beginning readers. The brochure closes by citing 16 signs of reading development. (NKA)
