Abstract: The purpose of this roundtable presentation is to discuss the impact of literacy-focused texts sent out to parents of children ranging in age from birth to eleven years-old as part of two collaborative initiatives between a university research center, school districts, and community partners. The texts were designed to provide literacy tips and activities that could be done at home or in the community with parents and their children in order to facilitate literacy learning and development.
