Abstract

The influence of parents is an important factor in 2 children's success in reading instruction. Many parents want to facilitate their children's reading growth but do not know how to instruct them and therefore turn to the educator for guidance. "Schools need to continually remind parents that the best way to prepare for their children's success in school is to involve themselves in their children's language experiences," relates Harms (1982, p. 3). The attention given to the beginnings of literacy has drawn attention to the role parents play in teaching children to read prior to school enrollment. Parents are the child's primary teachers. Mothers and fathers who regularly read magazines, newspapers and books communicate to their children that reading is valuable, and as a result children, emulating their parents, engage in viewing reading experiences. Children are eager to have parents share the books that are a treasure to them.
