Series: Books in the Home Program
Authors: Ann Herbert Scott
Books in the Home, a program used widely 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 of both parents and children.
"On Mother’s Lap," by Ann Hebert Scott, is a book that captures the love and security a little boy feels as he snuggles on his mother's lap, seeking and receiving reassurance that there will always be room for him even when his sister is there too. This document outlines activities to be completed by parents and their children as they read the story as part of the Books in the Home program.
