Our one-page parent tips offer easy ways for parents to help kids become successful readers. Although we've divided these tips by age, many of them can be used with children at various ages and stages — we encourage you to choose the ones that work best for your child.

Like a few others commented above, it would be great to have these sheets in French, too.

It would be helpful for parents of 4th and 5th graders as well! Thank you for the free resource!
