Keywords:parental involvement, Latino immigrants, children's literacy development, family literacy
In this article, we describe the parent literacy project and highlight the potential of efforts to involve parents in meaningful ways with their children's literacy development. Through our work with Latino immigrant parents, we found that parents, even with low literacy skills and not much formal schooling, have the desire and capacity to help with their children's literacy development. The parents were eager to help; they just needed tools.
