Read, Read, Read!: Training Effective Reading Partners

Read! Read! Read!, outlines a programme to address a need among educators to involve parents in the process of helping their children learn to read and write. Although the at-risk reader is provided with supplemental support at school, additional reinforcement is needed from home to maximize children's learning potential. While much has been written about how parents should read aloud to their children, this book goes beyond other publications by supplying the educator with a structured programme that trains parents to implement a variety of techniques. The authors encourage parents to truly participate in their children's literacy development, armed with knowledge of the reading process and aware of their invaluable role.
