Literacy—the ability to listen, speak, read, and write—begins developing long before children enter elementary school. Catherine Snow states in the foreword: “Every early childhood setting needs a copy of this book,” and we agree. This volume will support teachers as they work to meet new literacy standards in developmentally appropriate ways, offering guidance on building essential skills such as oral language and phonological awareness and useful suggestions for dramatic play areas, book nooks, writing centers, and other spaces that together create a literacy-rich environment.
