This teacher resource is about the Books in Homes Primary Programme, in which students in low socioeconomic status schools with limited access to books at home are provided with nine books of their choice per year. There are ten sections: Summary; Target student group; Method; Measures; Results; Lessons learned; Next steps; Research base; Further reading and links; and Contacts. The resource includes testimonials from principals and teachers and data from two evaluations of the program. It also mentions a 0-3 (years of age) program being piloted in the Northern Territory where parents choose the books to read to their child.
