Susan Straub created the Read To Me Program in New York. Her focus is using wordless books to encourage low literacy (or ELL) parents to tell their children stories. Her website is readtomeprogram.org; the site is full of great resources. She also just wrote a book called Reading With Babies, Toddlers and Twos. The website www.proliteracy.org is a good place to look for materials recommended for low-literacy parents as reading partners. It contains links via Verizon's hosted early childhood literacy. An especially good link is pbskids.org "Read Between the Lions" for shareastory programs -- go to www.pbs.org/shareastory.There are other book a day programs onwww.studydog.com.
