Reading Interest in Families

Annotated Research

Question: What is the effect of parents who enjoy and demonstrate reading on their families?

Answer: ‘Parents who enjoy and encourage reading produce families that do.” A Lockledge and S Matheny. 19989. 223.

Comment: This may be a more complex issue than it appears. What about a parent who enjoys reading books and the other doesn’t? I don’t think the issue is that simple. What does “enjoy” mean? What does “encourage” mean? RayS.
