Parents of young children are very often concerned with their child's pre-reading and beginning reading development. They want to know what they can do to help their child have a good start in this critically important skill. All too frequently parents do not have the information available to them to help their children. this article describes a local project designed to provide parents with ideas and information that should contribute to their children's maximum opportunity for success when formal school instruction begins. Although each parent-child relationship should be treated individually, there are some pre-reading experiences whicch are applicable to most family situations.
