  • Description

In today's libraries, children's services are planned and delivered not just for children, but for parents and others who can lend their support as young people learn. Children become skilled readers, writers, speakers, and listeners when they and their families regularly work together. This unique book focuses on the significant effect fathers can - and do - have on the language and literacy development of young children, and how libraries can abet this connection. The authors discuss the important roles that fathers play in the lives of their children, and the diversity of circumstances they face. Practical advice on book selection, library programming, and outreach to support fathers and their children is provided. Bibliographies, resources, Web sites for parents and librarians, advice, anecdotes, and stories complete the volume.
