This study was completed to determine the effects of the home literacy environment on three areas of literacy development: phonological awareness, alphabet knowledge, and concepts about print knowledge. The research was conducted as a case study. Data was collected through interviews, checklists, and a series of literacy assessments. The data shows that a literacy-rich home environment contributes to successful acquisition of emergent literacy skills. Through the review of the literature and the findings of this study, three themes emerged: the value of books in the home, parent teaching of literacy skills, and the involvement of the family in literacy activities.
