Families and Literacy (2012)

This fact sheet focuses on the role of parents in helping children develop literacy skills.

The authors point out that low literacy is an intergenerational cycle, and improving parents’ skills has a positive effect on the language development of children.

They offer a number of suggestions for ways parents can encourage their children’s learning, including visiting the library together; telling a story and asking a child to retell the story in his own words; and making a special storage space for books in the home.

The fact sheet is part of a series prepared by Literacy Newfoundland and Labrador.
