Series: Books in the Home Program
Authors: Peter Eyvindson
Books in the Home, a reading program widely used in Canada, is based on the belief that parents are children's first and most important teachers. In this program, parents learn to read and share books with their children in positive and enjoyable ways. The program promotes reading and writing for both parents and children.
This document outlines activities to be completed by parents and their children as they read the story "Red Parka Mary" by Peter Eyvindson as part of the Books in the Home program.
