Some Research on Reading

A few months back, my friend asked me for some info on the benefit of parents reading to children. I thought it might be nice to have this here too. Some of it's a lot heavier than others, so use what you want and ditch the rest.

Here are a few online websites and resources are basically the basis for all information on parents reading to children and building pre-literacy skills

And here are some brief handout type things that give quick info and tips for parents. If you come into the library I can give you more that aren't on the internet anymore.

Another really great place to check in the local Partners for Prosperity group. They have other sources for great tips for parents reading to young children.
