    Diversity in Early Care and Education explores the rich diversity encountered in programs and environments for children, ages birth to 8, including those serving children with special needs. The emphasis is on the practical and immediate concerns of the early childhood professional and family service worker, though all information has strong theoretical support. Although the text is situated within an early child care environment, its lessons are valuable for anyone who wants to understand more about diverse views related to children, childrearing, education, and development.

    From the very beginning of a child's life, effective listening includes becoming aware, focusing, selecting cues from the environment, and filtering out distractions. And in the preschool years, children are ready to learn a lot more about becoming good listeners. Yet very few teachers have had specific preparation for actually teaching children how to listen.

    We know that holding babies while feeding them is important, and that games like “Simon Says” are not just for fun. But why are these practices in the social and emotional domains so important for children’s learning and development? And how can we explain our choices to parents, administrators, and even policy makers? With accessible language and numerous examples, this book answers these questions by examining the rationale and research base for best practices.

    By Dorothy S. Strickland & Shannon Riley-Ayers

    Today’s busy early childhood practitioners are being asked to do more, know more, and produce “results,” especially in the area of literacy development. Here is a resource that covers key aspects of literacy learning and teaching, including child development, standards, curriculum planning, assessment, professional development, and connections between school and home. Attention is given throughout to issues related to linguistic and cultural diversity, and all chapters end with “leadership strategies” that serve as a quick guide for action and reflection.

    Reading is about more than letters and sounds. Successful readers must draw upon a great deal of knowledge and vocabulary to make sense of that they read. This text presents five essential early literacy practices—creating a supportive environment; shared book reading; songs, rhymes, and word play; developmental writing; and play—providing the tools to link literacy to content knowledge in math, science, social studies, and art.
