Literacy Development in the Early Years discusses everything from theorists and theories in the early years to sound practical applications today. Pre-service teachers can apply the many reading strategies this book has to offer. This gives my students a lot of tricks to place in their “tool belt” when they begin to teach. It deserves a place on their desks as a reference. -- Laurie Curtis, Southeastern Oklahoma State University
This text is well organized with easy-to-find topics presented in an appropriate order. The language is clear, concise, and to the point, and is easy to comprehend by readers of all levels. It is full of useful, reproducible materials, including details about running the classroom and working with the families of students. The text is especially focused on addressing the multicultural classroom; it provides insights throughout the book specifically for working with children of various nationalities. -- Jan Harrison, Patrick Henry Community College
This textbook is clearly written and very comprehensive. It contains the practical teaching tools that students crave. I really like the way the chapters are arranged with a strong initial emphasis on theory, but also practical ways to use and apply the theory. It is written in an engaging way, and I think students will enjoy reading this textbook. -- Dr. Rachael Waller, Montana State University at BillingsAbout the Author:
