Format: Paperback
As a literacy researcher, teacher educator, parent and grandparent, I found myself captivated by this comprehensive text on emergent literacy. The authors show how parents and eary childhood specialists can make literacy learning accessible to all children through everyday practices, in a variety of settings. It is an excellent example for how to present research in application for practitioners. I plan to put a copy in my five month old grandson's library and keep several on hand. I will give this book as a gift to new parents and use it in my course instruction for literacy education.

Format: Paperback
This book is perfect for someone who hasn't been able to take a early literacy course. It covers language and literacy development, ideas for providing literacy rich materials and activities, and how to bring literacy into every environment you create. I learned so much from each chapter that I will use in my work with young children. I also really appreciated the many photos and samples in the book. They make it even easier to put the ideas into practice right away.

I actually thought this one was interesting. This was for an early childhood education class and I actually got quite a bit out of it. It was a pretty good read for a text book. Great value and looked brand new. Thanks for saving me money on a college book!

A great book with lots of photos and suggestions for creating a literacy- rich environment for infants and toddlers. I look forward to implementing some of these ideas in my own home.
