The purpose of this research project was to provide caregivers of children from age birth to four with facts and strategies about the promotion of early childhood literacy. In Chapter Four a pamphlet was developed that focuses on these specific areas: (a) literacy development, (b) emergent literacy, (c) creating a literate environment, (d) reading aloud to one's child, (e) talking with one's child, (f) choosing developmentally appropriate books, and (g) the reading stages. The pediatrician's support in literacy intervention is vital. The pamphlet should be presented to caregivers during well child visits to (a) develop children's literacy skills, (b) promote successful readers, and (c) encourage life long learners.
