    By Dana Frantz Bentley

    For the young child, art is a way of solving problems, conceptualizing the world, and creating new possibilities. In Everyday Artists, the author addresses the disconnect that exists between the teaching of art and the way young children actually experience art. In doing so, this book questions commonly held notions and opens up exciting new possibilities for art education in the early childhood classroom.

    How do children come to literacy? This documentary observes that encouraging young children to make pictures, to invent their own graphic representations, sets the literacy process in motion. As children experiment with crayons, markers and pencils, they begin to realize that these marks can stand for the sounds of language. That learning path leads from telling stories with pictures to telling stories with words. And as some very enthusiastic young students demonstrate, these early interests can evolve into a passion for reading and writing.

    By Susan B. Neuman & Kathleen Roskos

    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.
