    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. From Scholastic.
