    My BA thesis explores how often parents read to their children and if parent's education affects the reading pattern. It also deals with questions such as: how much attention parents devote to their child’s reading development and what do they think about reading in the pre-school period. In the theoretical part of my thesis I discuss the history of literacy, then I enumerated and explained different types of literacy, with emphasise on the family literacy. I concluded my theoretical part by explaining the role of literacy in Curriculum for kindergartens (1999). In the empirical part, I focused on my research, whose goal was to find out whether and in what ways do the parents of the children from the kindergartens participate in the process of developing child’s literacy. I used the descriptive method and the research pattern was done systematically. As a research tool, I used a questionnaire. I analysed and graphically portrayed the information I received through the questionnaire. Parents are aware that reading to the pre-school children has a positive impact on the child development. I realized that parents read to their children every day or at least three times a week. Parent’s education does not play an important role; parents with lower education read to their children as often as parents with higher education do. This means that regardless of their education, all parents are aware of the importance of reading. Moms, between the ages of 31 and 35 years, are the ones who spend the most time reading to their children. Many libraries have various programs and reading hours where children can read a variety of books, perform in puppet plays, which they can attend with their parents. In this way, we encourage reading in the family and consequently reading aloud to children, and a positive attitude towards reading and books.
