Hello!  Reading Rockets has the following reading tips sheets in Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Russian, Arabic, Haitian Creole, Hmong, Korean, Navajo, Tagalog, and English.  These provide short tips with excellent information to distribute to parents who don't receive early literacy education--they would also be good for parent who have received early literacy education too!

  *   Reading Tips for Parent of Babies: http://www.readingrockets.org/article/23798/
  *   Reading Tips for Parents of Toddlers: http://www.readingrockets.org/article/23794/
  *   Reading Tips for Parents of Preschooler: http://www.readingrockets.org/article/7833/

I think the reading to babies and toddlers tips sheets are particularly good.  The babies sheet starts with "Snuggle up with a book when you hold your baby close." The toddler sheet starts with "Don't expect your toddler to sit still for a book" and then provides tips for selecting books that might grab their attention better than others and ready to busy toddlers with short attention spans.
