Fact: one-third of the nation's fourth graders score below the basic level in reading. While this can be frightening to think about, it's also true that nearly all children can become successful readers. This is especially true when a child's risk of developing reading problems is found early, and when the best science-based methods are used to teach reading.
The Nemours BrightStart! program is dedicated to helping struggling readers become successful readers by involving parents from the very start. This guide gives parents information on how to support their child on his or her reading journey. With a checklist of reading readiness skills for pre-kindergartners, lists of children's books to read with children, fun ideas to do at home to prepare children to learn to read, a glossary of reading readiness terms, and recommended websites to help parents learn more about this important topic, this book offers guidance for parents of children aged three to five years old.
Learning to read is one of the major milestones in a child's life, and it's one that parents worry about. Now parents have the power to ensure their child becomes a successful reader.
