The Family Learning Involvement Program (FLIP)

Overview

The Children’s Museum of Houston, in collaboration with the Children’s Learning Institute, developed a set of 201 family literacy kits that each consist of a high quality children’s picture book, handouts for parents about how to make the reading experience interactive and fun, and the materials and directions for an extension project (e.g., a game, art/craft activity, or set of toys) related to the book. Each kit targets a specific age range from infant through age 8, and the kits are available to check out through public library branches. The Children’s Learning Institute partnered with the Children’s Museum of Houston to conduct a preliminary study of the impact of engagement with the FLIP kits on parent and child home literacy practices and attitudes, and on children’s literacy-related skills and attitudes.
