Huebner, Colleen E.
Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, v5 n3 p291-314 2000
Tested one intervention's ability to increase the frequency and quality of shared reading among low-income parents and their preschoolers. The program was based on an interactive reading method which facilitates children's receptive and expressive language. Children and parents residing in poor communities participated. Preintervention, few parents reported much home reading. Postintervention, the frequency of home reading more than doubled. (SM)
