Dual-language resources for bilingual children and parents
and for the multi-lingual classroom
It requires skills for a parent to read a book together with their child. Good parenting is tough at the best of times, and when a child brings home a book from school to share, there are some basic things every parent must know.
This book is designed to help and encourage parents to support their child to learn to read. English may be their first language but how to read, what questions to ask, where to read... are vitally important. For parents who are new to English the problem becomes greater. How to stay in touch with what the child is learning and doing at school becomes a greater challenge. This book has 22 key Questions that the parent can talk about with their child and things that they may want to say to the teacher. The book comes in English and in English with ten languages for EAL Parents. Every text, even in other languages, is read out loud, so even parents who are not totally comfortable reading English, this book is still accessible.
Written by and created for the Equalities Team at Rochdale Borough Council, the 'Reading Together in English' series is the outcome of a project that included parents, children and teachers in Rochdale with all the illustrations drawn by children in primary and secondary schools.
