Parental Beliefs about Ways to Help Children Learn to Read: The Impact of an Entertainment or a Skills Perspective.
Sonnenschein, Susan; And Others
Early Child Development and Care, v127-128 p111-18 1997
The Early Childhood Project is a longitudinal investigation of contexts in which children from different sociocultural groups learn to read. Data collected from 41 families showed some consistency between parental beliefs on fostering reading development (entertainment versus skills perspective) and nature of experiences made available to children. Entertainment perspective was related to higher children's scores on literacy tasks. (MOK)
