Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The value of storybook reading in fostering emergent literacy is well documented. I am confident through this project that the amount and quality of storybook reading conducted in the homes will be increased and that it will have a positive effect on the students ' academic growth at school and their love of books and reading. I am also looking forward to the partnership between home and school this project will encourage. By working together as a team, we will be able to maximize the benefits in our efforts to meet the needs of each child in my class. My hope is that all parents will be excited about participating in the program, but especially those that are currently unaware of the benefits they can give their children by reading to them every day.
