About the Book

Researchers agree that children's early literacy development begins at home through parent-child interactions. Experiences children have with their parents are influenced by gender roles, parental involvement, parental self-efficacy and school initiatives. This study investigated the connection between play, early literacy and cultural diversity in parental involvement as variables that may influence parents' participation in family literacy activities during the early years.A sample of 102 families participated in this study. Families with either a son or daughter, (n = 79) and families with a son and daughter, (n = 23) were studied. A parent questionnaire was used to measure and compare literacy activities that parents and children participated in together at home. Findings suggest that parents with either a son or daughter encourage pretend play in the form of "dress up" more with their daughters. Parents with a son and daughter, in general, did not differ significantly in literacy practices.
