Description
Simply put, too many people cannot read as well as they need to for success in life. With literacy problems plaguing children in America and elsewhere around the world, Starting Out Right pulls together advice from experts in the field of reading education.

This book identifies the most important questions and explores the authoritative answers on the topic of how children can grow into readers:
-- What are the key elements all children need in order to become good readers?
-- What can parents and caregivers provide all children so that they are prepared for reading instruction by the time that they get to school?
-- What concepts about language and literacy should be included in beginning reading instruction?
-- How can we prevent reading difficulties from infancy through the early grades?
-- What are the most important questions that parents can pose to school boards, principals, and elected officials who make decisions regarding early reading instruction?

Readers will find out how to help youngsters build word recognition, avoid comprehension problems, and more -- with checklists of specific accomplishments to be achieved at different ages: for very young children, for kindergarten students, and for first, second, and third grade students. Included are 55 activities to do with children to help them become successful readers, a list of 100 recommended children's books, and a guide to CD-ROMs and Internet resources.

Great strides have been made toward identifying the best ways to teach children to read. Starting Out Right provides a wealth of knowledge based on a summary of extensive research. It is a "must read" for parents, child care providers, tutors, teachers, specialists in primary education, literacy advocates, and policy makers.
