As Thelma Hall argues later in this section, children can benefit greatly from their parents’ involvement in their learning to read. Adrian Blackledge’s study of Bangladeshi families found that mothers were very keen to support their children’s reading at home, but were frustrated by the gap between home and school literacy and by schools’ lack of understanding of home literacy practices. Blackledge concludes the chapter with six recommendations to help bridge this cultural divide.
