Abstract

Family literacy programs can be effective for supporting the literacy learning of both parents and children. Educators and community members can be constructive in establishing family literacy programs in their school and in the community. Having knowledge of successful family literacy programs is important for both initiating and continuing with family literacy engagement. In this article, we describe aspects of successful family literacy programs, including attention to the diversity of families. We begin with an overview of the changing definitions of literacy and common structures of family literacy programs and complete this review with areas for further research in family literacy.
