When parents help their children learn to read, they help open the
door to a new world. As a parent, you can begin an endless
learning chain: You read to your children, they develop a love of
stories and poems, they want to read on their own, they practice
reading, and finally they read for their own information or
pleasure. They become readers, and their world is forever
expanded and enriched.
This book focuses primarily on what you can do to help children
up to 10 years of age. During these years you can lay the
foundation for your child to become a lifelong reader. In the
first section, you will find some basic information about reading
to your child. This is followed by suggestions that guide you to
* read with your child and make this all-important time together
* stimulate your child's interest in reading and language; and
* learn about your child's school reading programs and find
ways to help.
While most of the book is for parents of children up to 10 years
of age, there is a brief section for parents of older children on
how to help them continue to grow as readers.
Finally, there is a resource section. As you make reading with
your child a routine part of your lives, this section will help
you to find new ideas and a variety of books you both might like.
You don't need to be an especially skillful reader yourself to
help your child. In fact, some public libraries offer adult
literacy programs that involve reading to children as a way to
improve literacy skills for the whole family. Nor do you have to
devote great amounts of time to reading with your child. It's the
quality of time that counts. Just be consistent -- give as much
time as you can each day to help your child. The activities
suggested are designed to fit into busy schedules.
Helping your child become a reader is an adventure you will not
want to miss. The benefits to your child are immeasurable, and in
the process you will find your world becoming richer as well.
