Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Language Development in Early Childhood, Second Edition, provides foundational, comprehensive coverage of language development theory and guidelines for enhancing language development in children from birth to age 8.  It not only helps readers achieve a basic understanding of the phonetic, semantic, syntactic, morphemic, and pragmatic aspects of language knowledge acquired by young children but also offers concrete ways in which this acquisition process can be enhanced in early childhood settings.  Acquisition of knowledge of written language is also included as part of children's language development.

Keys changes to this edition include

  • more guidelines and practical strategies for supporting language development in young children
  • expanded content on brain development, ESL/diversity, phonemic awareness, and interactive writing

Instructor Resources: Instructor's Manual and Test Bank, PowerPoint Slides

This is a great foundational text for those just starting out as well as a good "refresher" for those of us who have been in the field for several years. It is a good balance between being an "easy" read and adding to one's knowledge.
