Access to Books and Beyond: Creating and Learning From a Book Lending Program for Latino Families in the Inner City
David B. Yaden, Jr.
This chapter describes the findings from the authors' study of a three-year implementation of a book lending program for Spanish-speaking parents and their children at an inner-city preschool in Los Angeles, California, USA. The authors describe the nature and growth of the program and its role in facilitating collaborative interactions with parents—which, in turn, were critical in furthering the overall goals of the study. The authors show that these Latino parents, despite high-stress living conditions, are more than capable of contributing at home and at school to their children's educational success.
