Based on the idea that literacy is a social practice and that literacy acquisition begins in the home, this study seeks to explore the question of how does the home literacy environment impact a child’s attitudes towards literacy? Two school -aged children and their parents were observed and interviewed in their home environments to better understand this question. The results of this study show that the structure of the home environment, along with parental attitudes and parental involvement, positively impact a child’s attitudes towards literacy. Implications include the importance of home-school relationships and the need for teachers to provide parents with the information necessary to suppor t their children’s literacy development.
