“Reading Beyond Fairytales,” a blog to help parents expose children to informational texts, has been added to the Parent Toolkit website following development by Professor Nell K. Duke and researchers from NBC News Education Nation.

The blog post provides parents with various sources for informational texts, which are books and websites that teach about science and social studies topics, texts that teach people how to do something, biographies, and other nonfiction written works. The sources cited in “Reading Beyond Fairytales” are meant to be explored at home. Read the blog here.
