    The diploma thesis Family literacy in everyday life embraces the theoretical and the empirical part. The theoretical part embraces literacy, family literacy and book education. At first I defined literacy, perspectives of literacy and types of literacy. In connection with that I defined also the emerging literacy. In continuation, family literacy is presented; I gave the main emphasis to the latter. At first, I defined the family literacy. Then I spoke on that how the family environment influences the child’s verbal development. I presented different families with different approaches, educational programs which encourage family literacy as well as the family reading. The family is the environment that influences on the development of the child’s literacy from her birth on. Therefore, it is necessary for the parents to realize, what family literacy means. In the final chapter I briefly described book education, the objectives of the book education, children’s literature, selection of the books with regards to the age level as well as the family visits of the libraries. In the empirical part I was discovering if the parents are familiar with the expression family literacy, how often parents participate in everyday activities, connected with the literacy, if the parents are the ones who pay the greatest attention to common reading and read together with their child every day. I asked them also if they believe that they are enough acquainted with that how important is literacy for a child and how they can influence it. For the research I used survey questionnaire for the parents. I discovered that most of the parents do not know the term family literacy and that they occasionally participate in daily activities which are connected with the literacy. Mother read to the child most often. Most of the parents read to their child very often (almost every day). Most of the parents also believe that they are enough acquainted with the importance of literacy for a child. In conclusion I list a few proposals/directives for the improvement of the current condition in the field of family literacy in Slovenia.
