           What exactly is literacy and how can parents support its development?


Literacy is quite simply the ability to read and write. The National Institutes of Health estimates that one in five children has serious difficulties learning to read...and are at risk for failure in school and in life. Reading is the foundation for a good education. A skill which offers lifelong benefits and pleasure. Unlike language, which comes naturally to children, reading is a complex learned task and can be difficult for some children to learn. Educators believe that parents, and the reading opportunities they provide for their children, greatly influence a child’s reading development. Parental efforts are viewed as a valuable reading development resource. Families want their children to succeed in school and in life. They know that learning to read is an important step in a child’s path to success.
