In this contribution, Professor Schubert outlines a highly practical means for involving parents in reading instruction with youngsters. The popular press of late has drawn attention to the need for parents to become involved in helping with their children's education. Such articles as "Parents Are the Key," which appeared in U.S. News and World Report) September 12, 1977, and "How to Help Your Kids in School," which appeared in Better Homes and Gardens) November, 1977, have received considerable attention. Professional journals have also scrutinized the desirability of involving parents as much as possible as adjuncts in the learning process.
