How can we build a strong literacy foundation for children?
This book argues that learning and language development start with the play episodes, oral language practices, word play, and print encounters and events that children engage in during the early years of life. Filled with rich language experiences, the book illustrates ways to maximize these cornerstones to learning with meaningful events that allow children to discover print and use literacy in the play environment, culture, and local community they grow up in.
