Praise for the Third Edition :'The text relates theory and practice in an easily readable form with particularly helpful sections on key terminology and summaries within each chapter. A most useful, practical text which no early years practitioner should be without' - Jacqueline Barbera, Director of Undergraduate ITT, Liverpool Hope University CollegeThis Fourth Edition of Language and Literacy in the Early Years has been fully revised and updated to reflect current professional interests and the latest developments in the field. The book provides comprehensive coverage of issues in language, literacy and learning, focusing on the age range from birth to eight years. New material covers theory of mind, key persons, and social and emotional dimensions of learning. The author added material on difficulties with language development; phonics and the new literacies. Key terms, further reading and a revised layout make the book accessible to students.The author emphasizes the joy and creativity involved in supporting young children's development as speakers, writers and readers. While taking account of current initiatives and programmes, the author supports flexible teaching methods in what is a complex teaching and learning process. The book is fully illustrated with examples and photos from early childhood settings.This book is essential reading for primary and early years students and practitioners in the field of language and literacy including nursery nurses, classroom assistants and foundation stage teachers.
