True family literacy is not just a matter of establishing parent child book nights it s also about recognizing and validating the important ways teachers, families, and community members learn from one another. Family literacy is also about bringing students home literacy routines into the classroom then back home again.

With this belief in common, the contributors to this important book shed light on family literacy practices that consider and celebrate students complex and diverse home lives. Cultural considerations are key, and several chapters deal with the need to recognize, respect, and capitalize on home contexts for literacy in order to engage students, families, and communities.
