Integrating the language arts—listening, speaking, reading, and writing—this book presents the most comprehensive look at early childhood literacy education available.

In response to rising expectations for early childhood educators’ effectiveness and student achievement, this widely popular text includes research-based teaching strategies and information on brain research, bilingual education, technology, and the media’s influences on young children. It gives instructors a synthesis of the critical information on language arts gleaned from research on emergent literacy, early childhood education, and special education, and includes in-depth coverage of children’s literature, diverse language learners, and strong pedagogical features that bring the concept alive.
