Read@Home Materials Guidance
This manual aims to provide practical guidance on the identification and selection of quality children’s reading materials for home use, and the identification or design of accompanying materials for caregivers to support children’s learning. The manual is part of the Read@Home initiative, which aims to deliver reading and learning materials to hard-to-reach homes. It starts with an introductory section which explains the importance of reading at home and exposes the evidence base, followed by practical step-by-step guidance on how to identify and select quality age-appropriate reading materials; how to find, design and distribute accompanying guidance for caregivers; and how to monitor and evaluate book distribution efforts.
