This action research set out to investigate the attitudes of pupils towards reading and the involvement of parents when teaching children to read. The children and parents were asked to complete a questionnaire in which they were to identify their current practices. The children undertook a programme of reading activities and their responses were recorded. The main findings of this research were correlaled and the results subjected to statistical analysis. The children on the whole had a positive attitude to reading and that parents were supportive in home reading. There was support given by parents for those children experiencing difficulties with reading and help given to ensble children to become more successful and satisfied readers. There was a discrepancy in the number of times parents listened to the child read and the number of times they commented in the home/ school record book. I feel that an information pamphlet for the parents informing them of the best ways they can help their child with reading and support what is going on at school will be useful. An intensive Reading Programme carried out for half a term in an Infant School is beneficial in terms of progress made in relation to ability, attitudes to reading, parental involvement qnd time spent.
