Few primary teachers have a chance to find out in detail what children have already learnt, and continue to learn, about literacy at home with their parents. This book gives a clear demonstration of literacy learning that takes place at home, and how it differs from, as well as relates to, literacy at school. It will help teachers to increase their understanding of this process and to build on their relationship with parents. Such understanding, the book shows, can directly enhance children's literacy performance in school.
