I had to buy this book for my Masters class but ended up really loving it. It has a lot of very good information in it. This would be a very helpful book for all preschool teachers.

This book is okay and it is required for one of my college classes. It greatly underestimates deaf children's abilities and intelligence like if they are simple minded children and I am deaf myself which is an insult. The deaf and disability parts should definitely be revised with more relevant information and quit underestimating their abilities. The author is obviously being unacknowledged about deafness in children and went on typing about them as if she knows everything about them.

The rest of the book is good and informative. I could have given it 3 stars but ended up giving it a 4 because of that. A good book except for the deaf part.

If you need a textbook about the fundamentals of early literacy...

...it's the best: HANDS DOWN!

Without sounding cliched, I cannot name enough superlatives for this book, so I won't try. I'll just hit some excellent points that sold me on this book (and it's many previous editons).

First, it's under $80.00 or about as close as you can get for a textbook of this caliber. At first sight, it may not seem like such a big deal, but wait until you see what's inside!

Every page is printed in brillant color. Bright photos, clear large text, and TONS of tables and diagrams are abundant.

Let's talk about the organization. You name it, then it's got it. I was totally bowled over by an inclusion of sections on bibliotherapy and audio/visual reading equipment. Very rarely will you find a book with so many sections (six in all). Each chapter is further striated into tiny chunks of info that spill right into one another in a rational, logical flow...exactly what students need.

The fact that this book is in it's eighth edition should say something, too. The seventh edition was, in opinion, as perfect of a textbook as could be. Could this one top that one? The jury is still out on that.

Regardless, you would not spend your money better by choosing an alternative to this text. Please get this one.

This was an excellent purchase. The book has no flaws or markings - couldn't have gotten it any newer at the College book store.
